Top definition
An attempt to create a justification for something that you knowingly decided to flake out on. Lack of balls to take responsibility for your own actions or wrong doing. A pussy attempt to make someone feel better about their disappointment by disguising a lie as an excuse.
I've been meaning to call you back but I have been really busy. Total bullshit excuse. The person saying this is full of shit they are either avoiding you or had something else that was more important to them.

A perfectly valid reason, but one which your boss, teacher, or other superior simply doesn't like.
Boss: Why are you late?
You: My flight crash-landed, and it killed my dog too.
Boss: What a terrible excuse! You're fired for real this time!

they are tools of incompetence, used to build monuments of nothingness, and those who specialize in them seldom accomplish anything.

A lame reason for getting out of something. For example, "I didn't have anything to eat for breakfast so I ate my essay". Or "excuse" in the word "excuse me". For example, "excuse me for sneezing on your dress."
Excuse me, but that was a lame excuse.

An excuse is a reason for which an individual does or doesn’t do something; it is a transfer of blame from oneself to some other external.
"I did not attend the gym today because I was tired".
"I don't spend my free time reading books because its boring".
"I get drunk because it relaxes me".
"I am overweight because I love food too much".
"I am poor because of the top 1%".
The penultimate excuse involves the movement of things (Time): "I couldn't because I ran out of time".
