Pretend you've hurt your back, only slightly and lie to your doctor.

thanks but was hoping for something along the lines of flu or stomach upset.

by the way, I am not one to take off days willy nilly. Infact, i have not taken one day off since start of the year so please do not judge me for wanting to take 2 days off as sick!

Bad stomach would work, with stomach cramps. Perhaps blame it on something you ate thursday evening???

yep honesty is always better:thumbsup:

and if you are not in a position to be given time off then you are going to let people down if you dont go in arent you? not that i want you to feel guilty:roll:

your partner is ill and needs you to look after them, kids, parent etc... Just don't leave the house if you pretend you're ill unless you'll be near a doctors or chemist!
Two of my old work colleagues were in a relationship, he came in to the shop on his day off, she claimed to be ill but i saw her outside the shop! Idiot!

Say you broke both your legs in a skiing accident at the weekend, but that you should be in work on Wednesday

if you have kids, say one of them has been sick all night and you need to stay and watch them!

just say you were up all night vomiting and you had been out for a curry with some friends...think it's food poisoning blah blah... got to be clear of anything like that for 48hrs at my place before your allowed to return due to infection control

thanks guys and gals ... im gonna go with the stomach bug.

POO to all the people that tried to make me look bad by suggesting "honesty", and "taking a legit holiday". Please do not assume my situation ... i am an honest person but there are some situations where you just have to tell white lies .. no one is hurt and I have not let my team down.
#24
ok so i took some more days off ... already used stomach bug as above so whats the latest these days :p
#25
Piles...... The company never want to enter into a discussion about your arris:whistling:
#26
Bird Flu?

Seriously, all the people who said "ask your boss", do any of them actually work in real jobs, or is it those city office jobs where you spend all your time on ebay or youpron?
