Giving very odd excuses

The General went out to find that none of his G.I.s were there. One finally
ran up, panting heavily.

“Sorry, sir! I can explain, you see I had a date and it ran a little late. I
ran to the bus but missed it, I hailed a cab but it broke down, found a farm,
bought a horse but it dropped dead, ran 10 miles, and now I’m here.”

The General was very skeptical about this explanation but at least he was here
so he let the G.I. go. Moments later, eight more G.I.s came up to the general
panting, he asked them why they were late.

“Sorry, sir! I had a date and it ran a little late, I ran to the bus but
missed it, I hailed a cab but it broke down, found a farm, bought a horse but it
dropped dead, ran 10 miles, and now I’m here.”

The General eyed them, feeling very skeptical but since he let the first guy
go, he let them go, too. A ninth G.I. jogged up to the General, panting heavily.

“Sorry, sir! I had a date and it ran a little late, I ran to the bus but
missed it, I hailed a cab but…”

“Let me guess,” the General interrupted, “it broke down.”

“No,” said the G.I., “there were so many dead horses in the road, it took
forever to get around them.”

asking how they enjoyed their trip.

Letters are still pouring in asking, “What trip?”
