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.
0(0.0%)
I’d love to help, but I’m left-handed.
2(6.5%)
Do it all yourself! Lord knows you need the exercise.
3(9.7%)
We only have two shovels.
0(0.0%)
I’m only five years old.
3(9.7%)
I’m just here to deliver the pizza.
6(19.4%)
None of the above are valid reasons.
6(19.4%)

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