10 excuses for getting out of work


#1

Don’t want to go to work? So you call in with the lame-old excuse about feeling ill even though you know your boss doesn’t buy it. Besides, “feeling ill” is at best only a short-term solution that won’t win you any fans at the office. That’s why if you’re going to play hooky, you need an excuse that will help you save face as well as your sanity. Here are some ideas

I have one of those job where you pick up your phone, say “I won’t be in today, cya tomorrow” and that’s that.

Sadly, I don’t call in sick for fun…don’t have a habit of doing so and it’s a 6 people shop. One person missing means 1/6 of the company is missing. Everyone there is good people so one try to be fair to them. Only when I really am prevented from getting in is when I stay home.

Now, being late is another story

I hate to bump this thread, but doesn’t this belong in General Discussion?
