Excuses! Excuses!

Looking out at the 15” blanket of snow that covers the ground this morning, I realize I’m going to need some assistance shoveling the yard.  


No doubt some of my potential helpers will attempt to excuse themselves from the task. Since I’m known for being a bit of a slave driver when it comes to household chores etc, I’d like your opinion on what constitutes a valid reason for not helping me dig a path back to civilization.  

Which (if any) of the following excuses should I accept as a valid reason for leaving me to shovel the yard on my own this morning:

I promised my friends I’d play Warriors of Zeltron IV: Killer Assassins of Death with them online today.
I’d love to help, but I’m left-handed.
Do it all yourself! Lord knows you need the exercise.
We only have two shovels.
I’m only five years old.
I’m just here to deliver the pizza.
None of the above are valid reasons.

 If you can think of another acceptable excuse, please let me know. I’d hate to be unfairly tough on these folks
