Ah yes the good old sicky I've heard some whoppers over the years and I've even told a few, one of the best was a mates wife rang in and told the boss that her husbands work pants have been stolen of the line and eaten by a herd of goats. So folks whats your best excuse to take a sick day.  :yes:

I've never lied.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I've done it loads of time, because I was ill and didn't realise it, so couldn't face work everyday....the worst one was 'I fell downstairs last night and put my back out'. :blush:
Thankfully now I'm medically retired I can wake up every morning without that anxiety, or the need to come up with a dumb excuse!

I didn't miss work too much but I did lie about being sick a couple of times.  Just had to have to have the day off.

I know what you mean. I used the brocken car excuse once to many times and got caught out. By the way I like your avatar. :tu:

I called in "hungover" once... fortunately, the rest of my department called in "sick" with various lies. We'd all been at a wild company party the night before.

Since I was the only who called in with the truth, I got paid! Everyone else had to take a vacation day. LOL. Two thumbs up for telling the truth, even when the truth is unpleasant! LOL

for women saying you have period cramps is the best excuse.. no one can argue with that, especially if your boss is male..

men are safest saying they have food poisoning.. and its coming out both ends.. leaves a nice visual for the employer..

I would tell you to take some pain killers  and get your ass into work    lol :P

I never took any time off for monthly problems,  and i did have it bad..  I knew that if I did, it would look really bad, because the rest of the women in my team were always in ... A hot cup of coffee or tea, few painkillers, and I went on the move.. It wasn't so bad in the end..  A bit of exercise helps ..

  If a male boss can see other women  getting on with their work day, and knowing some of them complaining about their pain, yet he see's they can still get on with things.. I seriously doubt he will accept  the monthly problem  as an excuse.... I wouldn't accept it as an excuse, and I know exactly what it's like..
