whats the best excuse to call into work?
I just got out of class and I'm supposed to work 2pm to 10pm. I rarely call into work, however, it is an amazing day and I have a lot of personal stuff that I need to do like laundry, homework, read rooshs' new book, start lifting again, etc. So I need a good excuse that sounds legitimate.

My favorite excuse (which earned me 0 brownie points) was when my dad took me to a drag racing event. I called my job from inside the track and told them I was at a drag race and couldn't make. Atleast I was honest Smile

Anyways, for those who share my belief that sometimes you need to take a personal day, what do you tell your boss? I don't want to say I'm sick because ill show up tomorrow with a nice tan and a new haircut.

Ummm...here's a crazy idea. How about the truth like a man? Call your supervisor and say you have personal issues that cannot wait, and you must sort out. You don't have to give low-level details, but it beats a bullshit lie.

Lying is beta, man the fuck up!!!

Exactly. In some places higher ups will not look with favor on subordinates that are more man that they are, but fuck them. In the long run it pays off to be straight with people. This world would be a better place if people were straight more often.

I agree, but the modern American worker has no job security, if he's gotten more then one raise they'll look for a reason to fire him and bring in cheaper help. Being honest is no longer the best policy (if it ever truly was)

Tell 'em you fell down the stairs and hurt your ankle. It makes you look like a dope, and that makes it seem more true.

I'm with Chad on this.

Tell them a close member of the family died. Ymmv but I've never had anyone question my relation to the deceased. They just give condolences and say ok and never question you about. For increased effect wear all black the next day you come into work(I'm serious).

I used to say a relative was terminally ill and recovered so I can re-use them but mgmt can view you as a liability(He's takes so much time off to care for his sick uncle).

I believe that too many people think that mgmt/hr, etc are looking out for them but in reality a company can/will fabricate reasons to fire people. 3 keys to a lie are 1) Sensationalize, 2) Rehearse, 3) Rehearse more.

To add to what Goldin Boy said, you must must MUST live the lie. Once you've lied like that at work, as far as you're concerned its stone cold fact.

Tell the boss that the night before you were roofied by 4 illegal African immigrants, and was gang raped till the wee hours of the morning. Now your butthole is bleeding and you are crying uncontrollably.

Yeah, not only will he give you all the time off you need, but won't even ask for report. Yep, he won't touch that whole situation with a 10 foot pole. Your cleared to party.

Haha. You guys think I'm kidding, don't you?

Checkout the masculine gear thread. Always be prepared.

RE: whats the best excuse to call into work?
This guy at work called in the past two days because he was so wrecked that the girl he is dating slept with me(which happened a couple days before he started going out with her). He said that his mom was in a car crash where her car flipped three times. He was living the lie that Chad was talking about.

How about this? You show up at work, on time, and actually do what you are being paid to do.

Who are you? Ferris Bueller? Going to put a thermometer in hot water so mom thinks you are sick?

Cant work today, im going to watch TV?

Work hard so that, when you need to be somewhere else, your boss will feel happy to give you some time off.

This thread is the most beta thread since the 'How long to find a wife' thread.

Finding an excuse to tell your boos that you won't work? What's this? Grammar school?
