7 Great Excuses to Get Out of Work on a Nice Day
We’ve had some ridiculously nice weather lately, and there’s nothing worse than being stuck inside on a nice day!
Sometimes you just need to forget your responsibilities and play a little hooky! Here’s 7 great excuses to use the next time you need a last minute day off…
(Important note: Lying is bad. Also, as a fairly superstitious person, I’d be easy on claiming someone you really know and love has died or something cause…you don’t want that guilt if it actually happens after that!)
This is the most obvious choice, and tends to work the best. If you know you’re skipping out of work on say, a Friday…maybe start working on your fake cough by Wednesday afternoon. Thursday morning you are CLEARLY coming down with something! (Even better, just tell people you caught a stomach bug. You’ll never get follow up questions!)
Make up a “religious holiday.”
Listen, if Pastafarianism and wearing a colander on your head can be a thing, then certainly you can think of something. Seems like it’s about that time to observe The Feast of the LaurLaur. You’re welcome.
Too Emotional After an Episode of “This is Us.”
Unless your boss is a monster, they’ll TOTALLY understand. Plus, Milo Ventimiglia posted a note last week for you to take to work for this very reason!
Faking a family emergency
I mean, really, I’m superstitious AND ultra-paranoid about stuff like this, so even the thought of it makes me uncomfortable, but if you have little to no soul and/or conscience, it seems like Aunt Betty got in an accident and you need to go be with your family…
Ugh, you went to start your car to leave for work, and nothin! Or…what’s that? Is that a flat tire? Oh, the tow truck’s gonna be a 3 hour wait? Shoot, seems like you’ll never get to work in time now…
This one is risky, because your boss may ask for proof…in which case you’ll have to get REALLY good with Photoshop!
Granted this one only works if you have and/or are responsible for a kid or two…but it looks like the daycare got shut down today because of some weird outbreak…or maybe your sitter had a family emergency…or car trouble…or was overly emotional after (WAIT A MINUTE…)
