    Anyone have any good and realistic excuses to get off of work? My friend is a pizza delivery person, and wants off on Friday. He couldn't switch with anyone else. It can't be anything such as I'm having company over, since most people would know ahead of time. He could say he has car problems, but he's an auto technician. If all else fails, I guess he could call in sick...

    What if he says he is the best man in one of his friend's wedding? Can that work?

    I keep telling him to say that, but that's more of a joke thing. I told him to say that the brake pads he installed aren't working right, and needs to do fix them, but he thinks it'll make him look bad being an auto person and everything.

    I'm guessing no one is going to be serious then...I expected that someone would come up with something intelligent though...

    Guess it's the sick excuse *sighs*

    A death in the family or a mortal illness helps you get out of downright anything. However, I wasn't lying when I told my professors about those things. :(

    Whazt the fuck did you think we would say? Lying to get out of work is always about coming up with something pathetic and stupid enough that no one dares question it. The "My mom in the hospital" thing is pure gold. My mom has had more ER visits than Noah Wylie in my career....

    Lying about a parent or loved one being in hospital is just asking for bad karmic vibes heading your way.

    There's nothing wrong with saying that someone is in the hospital, but the way you put it, that's not serious at all...

    If it wasn't so close to Friday, he could have just said that he has plans. Being this late, calling in sick seems like the only believeable excuse.

    What is the real reason he wants Friday off, and will he get paid for taking a sick day or a personal day or a vacation day? If not, then I don't see the point of calling out.

    But if he gets fire I feel reponsible. I suggested he take the day off, but he never seems to request it off, even though I told him about 2 weeks back...

    Also, my friend isn't too lazy to go to work, he just wants to do something else. If he were to just stay at home doing nothing, then that's lazy.

    This also isn't a full time job or anything. In fact, he might get another job in a week. Waiting for the drug test to come back. The pizza delivery was only a temp. job, and the store knows it. He would quit right now, but is waiting to see if Sears Auto center will call him, which will take about a week.

    The job doesn't exactly treat him good too. They schedule him until closing even on school days, and I believe he gets up at 4am for school. He also fell asleep at the wheel driving to school once, and got a flat tire due to this job or his own stupidity...The staying until closing was for cleaning the store, even though he is only suppose to be delivering. $5.50 no tips to wash dishes...
