1. My kid is sick.

    This should be any parents go-to. That said, other parents will likely see right through this.
  2. I'm volunteering that day.

    Volunteering not to go to your stupid party.
  3. I have a prior engagement.

    Technically I was engaged before I was married so this is the truth.
  4. I'm sick.

    Of having to come up with other excuses.
  5. I'm allergic to other people.

    I've used this one many times.
