The Nine Fake Sick Day Excuses Your Boss Is Most Likely to Buy

fake-sick_o_1186110

I know YOU’VE never faked a sick day, but believe it or not, some people have. And when they put on their “I’m on my death bed” voice to call in sick, now we know what THEY should be saying. Again, them, not you. You’re honest.

A new survey asked 1,000 bosses which sick day excuses they’re most likely to believe. So here are the best ones to fake . . .

  1.  The flu.
  2.  Throwing out your back, or having back pain.
  3.  An accidental injury. Too bad they weren’t more specific. A broken toe? A paper cut? There’s so much to choose from when you’re faking it, a little guidance would have been nice. (???)
  4.  Stress.
  5.  Surgery.
  6.  Depression.
  7.  Anxiety.
  8.  A cold.
  9.  A migraine.

One more thing to keep in mind. Even though the flu is the most believable excuse, only about 25% of bosses say they buy it. Which means that no matter WHAT excuse you use, there’s at least a 75% chance your boss won’t buy it.
