Man, he really comes up with the excuses. Probably didn't pay his power bill last month. He's subject to use any or all of the following or some other variation. It all adds up to deadbeat. His mommy and daddy cut off his allowance, his disability check was lost in the mail, he didn't get his federal tax rebate, his dog ate the paperwork for his workload, he can't work because he's upset that dog also ate his cat, his girlfriend left him, he got a Charlie horse in his leg, he has developed tendonitis and has to see the doctor daily, his doctor has advised him to take a month off in the Bahamas, his flight back from the Grateful Dead tour was cancelled, his grandmother needs him to help her at home during her pregnancy, his godson in Nambia is graduating to advanced email phishing and he has to attend the ceremony in person, he has to repair the milking machine at his sick brother's farm in the U.K., he's suffering from ED and his meds prevent him from doing any physical labor, the Three Stooges reruns are on TV and he can't leave the couch, his dog ate the remote to his TV and he has to stay at home until the new one arrives, he's involved in a lawsuit against Proctor and Gamble after having a reaction to using their hemorrhoid crème, he's in quarantine at home after exposure to herpes, an illegal immigrant stole his place at the corner he panhandles from - so now he has to bicycle to a new corner on the other side of town, they moved the free food mission down the road and it takes him all day to get there for a meal, multiple family members have passed away this month and he has had to attend each funeral. ICE knocked on his door and he's afraid to go to work, he's has diarrhea from his PTSD due to losing his favorite pen pal, he has bad gas and the bus driver won't let him ride the bus to work, the dog ate the crib sheets he was going to use to pass his citizenship exam and he has to remember what to say, he having flashbacks from the LSD he took as a teen after quitting school, his common law wife and the state have a warrant for his arrest due to non-payment of child support - and they know where his shop is. Last but not least, he has a US address and number, but he is actually a citizen and permanent resident of India.
