Dearest [your name]’s employer. Please excuse [pronoun]’s lateness today due to a glitch in the Google Clock scheduled alarms.
The issue has been being worked for almost a week now, known for more than that, but [your name]’s phone just ran into the problem [timeframe].
As you can see by the many one-star reviews on the Play Store, this issue was not exclusive to [your name]’s device, and affected up to half the planet’s cell phones.[your name] plans to invest in a non-Google based alarm clock because even when they fix the app, they have a high likelihood of just abandoning it later on.
Yours truly[fake signature]
