The "I'll Be Feeling Sick on Friday" Sierra@Tahoe Trip 

In case you need an excuse to get out of work, you can always try the traditional "I'm sick". The trick is to start the sickness late Thursday so as not to arise any suspicion. Then again, you can always take the direct approach... "I'm not coming in today. I'll be there tomorrow morning". These may not work for you, so I've taken the liberty of including a few "unique" excuses that your boss has probably not heard:

1. I have an Orthodontist appointment. My braces are invisible. I need to get them adjusted.

2. I almost overdosed on heroin last night, and I can't feel my teeth.

3. I don't feel like working, and if I were to come in, all I'd do is play around on Facebook.

4. I was drugged last night and am currently somewhere in Mexico.

5. I'm feeling suicidal today and I don't want any of you to be in any way involved in triggering my impulse.

6. I am stuck in a blood pressure machine down at Wal-mart.

7. I was sprayed by a skunk and it'll take a few days for the smell to wear off.

Hopefully one of these works for you and you can join us on Friday @ Sierra!
