Do or do not. There is no try.

A Chic Chick Quotes Yoda & You Will See Why.

Thankfully I can't recall who was so annoying, and got a laugh from the list. 

Now I share to give you a smile, too.

Preferable to light my hair on fire than hear another excuse!

I forgot.

It was raining.

I was in a hurry.

It just happened.

I don't have time.

I had a headache.

I deny everything.

I was misinformed.

You can't prove that.

I don't see the issue.

You don't understand.

I couldn't find my keys.

I was only trying to help.

Are you talking to me???

I left a message on your answering machine....didn't you get it?

I lost your number.(Ask someone higher on the food chain to look it up for you)

I lied to you before, but now I'm telling you the truth. Don't you respect me for that?

Oh my gosh, did you say 4? I thought you said 5-I was waiting for YOU!!!

I did call, but didn't leave a message. Didn't you hear those hang-ups?
