    Whats the best excuse you've ever given for not going to work? My brother rolled in after a night out at quarter to 4 this morning, his reason given to his boss for not going in...'I just didn't feel like it'

    Well at least he's honest! It was nearly 'Sorry mate I'm just too drunk from last night'

    So what the best excuse you've come up with/heard?

    My mate once said "I'm battling a deadly virus at the moment".

    He was playing Halo at the time

    why, when people fake a sickie they feel the urge to put on a really feeble "at death's door" voice, but when its genuine, it just a casual "yeh im just feeling reall ill"? lol

    I can't think of an excuse at the mo- but I once deliberately sucked orange juice through my nose before I called in sick to ensure a believable 'sick' voice - I had 'a cold'.

    I heard the best way to fake a cold voice on the phone, is to lay on the bed on your back, with your head hung over the edge...sort of like looking at the room upside down...and then speak on the phone.

    I turned up at college and explained to my teacher that I was still really drunk from the night before, which was my excuse for not doing any work. I was there in body but not in mind.

    My friend keeps pretending he has a kidney problem and has to go for tests at the hospital.

    One of my (botched) excuses to miss work was when I told my boss that my Mum had to go into work, so I needed to stay home and babysit my little sister. It went a bit wrong when the boss asked for my Mum's mobile number so she could check that I wasn't lying. I never phoned her back, and kept ignoring the ringing phone, hehe. Then my Mother said that I should have just given the boss her number, as she would have lied for me. Grr.
