Ever heard of "Kompetenz-Attrappen"?

My favourite excuse why someone couldn’t finish his/her task(s):”Sorry, I had meetings the whole day, but I try to finish today” – means, I try to get on as many meetings today to use the same excuse tomorrow -(Sounds hard but I have seen a lot of people performing “meeting hop”.
