    I have never made an excuse.

    It doesnt go down too well when you tell your boss you are still drunk though but as long as its only once or twice a year.

    However having been a "boss" before, the ones that I do not understand (few & far between) are the ones that actually lie & say their gran or mum died.. Sick indeed.

    ​on the first point, really bad idea if your a pilot.
    on the second, you really start to disbelieve people when they are on their 4th gran or 3rd dad.

    Nope. The sign is when you reference them & find out its because of attendance they lost their previous job. But what they dont know is employers often "off the record" give you more info. Like their mother or gran died & they use the same excuse after you have given them a break.

    Like I said. They are few and far between but those guys are proper sick.

    Wazzer did but he got the date wrong and as usual it was premature.....

    I rarely take time off sick, but I'm in the food trade and if your off due to sickness or diarrhea then you aren't allowed back to work until at least 48hrs has passed since you were last sick, therefore if your off due to something minor like a headache then you always say you've been sick.... 2 extra days off no questions asked!

    Two weeks isn't really a long time to recover from a nervous breakdown, maybe he was filling in while his ex got childcare sorted. Have seen one ex-colleague take a couple of months to properly recover from it and return to work.
