The best excuses for “skipping” work

Who has never wanted one morning, particularly Monday, to stay at home rather than go to work ? Rest assured, it is relatively common and I would even go so far as to say that it is almost universal... Once again, our American friends are among the best in the world in this area as revealed by a recent study by Wakefield. Research carried out for Citrix, a specialist in IT technologies.

I'm sick !

If I may give you a little advice: leave this excuse to Serge Lama... It's true that it's a classic, that it probably works when your children don't want to go to school because of the math test, but in the world of work this is a bad idea.

Indeed, don't you think that your superior will try to verify your statements? For example, what do you do if they ask you for proof? Are you getting a fake certificate from a doctor? Not very legal, but why not... Do you really think this strategy can work every time? Even assuming that your boss trusts you blindly (which is obviously not a good idea given your cunning…), how do you think he will react when he discovers the pot-aux-roses? I don't want to scare you, but it's a safe bet that you will be sanctioned, if you are not dismissed outright. Admit that it would be annoying…

Do you think I'm exaggerating and that nothing can happen to you? Make no mistake, thanks to new technologies (and in particular Facebook and company) it is increasingly simple to know what you are doing and where you are! This is the case, for example, of a young American who, a few months ago, claimed to be too ill to go to work, while at the same time he posted photos from the night before on the famous social network. which was apparently particularly wet. Morality, in addition to having made a fool of himself (he wore a magnificent fairy costume...), he was fired without compensation!

In the same vein, a Swiss woman was fired after being caught on Facebook when she had claimed to be overcome by an excruciating migraine which prevented her from working in front of a computer screen... All this to tell you that if ever a day, you don't want to go to work, use your imagination and don't settle for a simple imaginary illness, it's too easily verifiable!


Some unexpected apologies to say the least…

If you ever lack inspiration, here are the 10 best excuses invoked to clear oneself during an absence noted by the American study and I promise you that I am not inventing anything:

“My bike was out of gas” : Nice try, but I think your interlocutor will quickly detect the lie, I don't know why...
“Gasoline is too expensive” : This is especially true if you put it in a bike…
" I am on a diet " : This is a strong argument... Will it be enough to convince your boss of the merits of your absence?
“I drank too much Sunkist and I’m too tired to come.” : Telling the truth, that’s true originality!
“I have problems with ingrown toenails”
“My numerologist advised me not to come today” : This is undoubtedly one of my favorites, especially because it also works with astrologers and other charlatans of all kinds!
“It’s Elvis’ birthday” : We don't work for Jesus' birthday, why would we work for the "King's"?
“My dog was sprayed by a skunk” : It's probably the same dog who ate your homework when you were still at school, we can say that he will have had some adventures!
“All my things are in the washing machine, I have nothing left to wear” : As everyone knows, washing your things takes a considerable amount of time...
“I definitely had to watch my gardener to make sure he planted everything I wanted and what I bought. » : This excuse is undoubtedly the most valid because we no longer find reliable “small staff” and your boss is undoubtedly aware of it!

This at least proves that our American friends have a boundless imagination, especially when it comes to inventing crazy stories. No wonder Hollywood is doing so well...

In conclusion, even though everyone may not want to go to work, we must not lose sight of the fact that finding a good excuse is never easy. Think about it before drying...
