lol, I did wonder one day if licking the underside of the fridge would kill me, or just make me ill.
i decided that I probably shouldn’t try it
omg doug, you are useful TOO.
thanks alot. This tip will definitely be used. Last time’s “one day flu” was kind of a failure…
Oh no! My secret’s out!
OMG…I totally should have done this today…
Mental note: Birthday coming up this Wednesday…call in and say that I got food poisoning eating out to celebrate. The math editing will handle itself for a day. :^)
A friend of mine once “phoned in well.” He claimed he felt too good to ruin the day by working.
The funny thing is, he actually got away with it!
When I said to my boss that my bathroom smells worse than a public toilet, and that I fart like a horse, he said to me, that I do not have to come to work today. 😀
‘Cept, that’s not really a fake sick day, unless you view either puking or constant diarrhea (or both!) as excellent recreational activities. Kinda rare when work isn’t the preferred alternative.
Awesome tip, I am sure my boss used this not too long ago :).
Can I request an olympics cartoon with an ookpik? We need more fuzzy creatures.
Yeah, we never ask about the “embarrasing symptoms”, however, we have one guy who always insists on telling them…just to be certain that we believe him!
You can sometimes get out of describing the symptoms with a simple “you don’t want to know”.
And, as a handy tip, if they *do* want to know, it’s time for new job somewhere else.
I was thinking about calling in today… but decided to be responsible instead (crazy, I know!). I’ll keep it in mind for next time. 🙂
I’ve used the food poisoning one once. I mentioned problems at “both ends” and the manager quickly made some excuses to end the conversation and see me back at work when I felt better.
HA HA HA!!! It’s funny because it’s true! Not too useful for the guys, but menstrual ailments hit the same mark. Excellent… 😀
I thought Food Poisoning doesn’t work anymore. They are, you know, too easy. 😀
10 points to chickens! Guess what I am having today? 😀
Embarassing moments like catalope gowing out of your ears
@Henrik – Nice!
