I find that no-one ever questions an excuse that makes you look stupid. So something like, "Sorry I can't because I fucked up my hand by closing my own car door on it," works. Maybe, "For the next year I'm not allowed out on weekends without Betty because I was fucking some woman I work with. And Betty isn't free that day."

Weekend detention used to be a fine excuse until they did away with it. No-one likes to ask why you are doing time, even if it's only weekend time.
