It's Blame Someone Else Day!

First Posted: 09/12/13 EDT Updated: 09/12/13 EDT

There's one special day of the year when nothing is your fault ... and it's today. Yes, you read that right: September 13th is national Blame Someone Else Day, and it's a glorious time when you're not to blame for anything. According to legend (and the Internet), Anne Moeller of Clio, Michigan invented this day in 1982 when her alarm clock didn’t go off and she needed an excuse to explain her tardy arrival to work. Don’t believe me? Go ahead and blame someone else.

We'd like to help you celebrate this momentous occasion right now. Tell us what mistake or mishap you'd like to blame someone else for in the comments. We can't absolve you of any guilt ... but we can give you an outlet for it.
