Well, last week I used the sick one, but today I just didn't call off. I was gonna say that my sister is in labor and I have to be there with her.

as a woman, pull the "it's that time of the month" shtick.
No man can ever understand and they usually freak out when hearing that. :)

Women can use any mysterious gynecological problem as an excuse to a male boss.
Unfortunately, I work in an Ob/Gyn office.
Damn.
I starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

My personal favorites are

"Loading my assault rifle"

"Waiting for the required 3 days"


or the ever popular

"Making sure it can't be stopped by cutting the red wire"

Im just really good at faking sick... my boss began to call my sick days and personal days, "Chicago Days." Usually if I called out (or left early!) it had something to do with Chicago lol

At Universal, you can only either call in "sick" or "personal"...if the lead or supervisor asks me, though, why I was out, it's usually: "Oh, my mom and I went to Disney"
Plince! Plince! Nein! T-Rex!!

Well, maybe since I work at Bob Evans, I can say that I am going down for a guided tour of the actual farm. re: Your favorite excuse when calling off work

I was up too late reading posts on Broadwayworld.com
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Sumofallthings I LOVE YOUR LIST!

Actually...I hardly call in at all. I'll drag my butt in even in the worst condition. The last time I missed a big amount of time was for surgery last September.

My boss usually begs me to leave if I'm sick and always reminds me about how many vacation days I need to use or lose before year-end. :o)

Where are we going, and why am I in this handbasket?

I'm honest when I call in sick. I say, "I hate those disgusting kids and their du-rags. I don't want to hear the name 'Shaquanna' for 24 hours, so I'm taking a mental preservation day. Good luck in finding a sub!"
