We are all human beings, some point we feel we do not have
to go to work, even though, and at the end of the month, we need a salary from
our employers. However, we give out some outlandish excuses to our bosses. The
best reason for missing work should be the truth but for some reasons you
cannot use it. That is why it is necessary use something that sounds real to
your manager just to get a day or two off you workplace.
The following is a list of the best excuses you would use
for missing work:
Doctor’s appointment: The aforementioned is apparently the
perfect excuse you can give to for missing work. This excuse is best if you
make it the appointment the prime thing in the morning or even later in the day
for instance around 2 p.m. The excuse will get you absent for work for a
half-day or so. This will help you recharge especially if you program the
appointment on a Friday afternoon.
Illness: Your employer may be very rude if he or she does
not excuse you for missing out because you are ill. This will apparently work
best if some of the symptoms like coughing are evident. Being laid in a
hospital bed is also a good reason and will let you miss work for some days.
Traffic jam: This is also a good reason to
miss work or get to work late. However, this will work best if you do not use
the aforementioned reason so many times, well, it might get you terminated if
you keep on using it.
Car troubles: Well, car
is out of fuel or even a tire burst, who would not believe that? Not unless
your employer does not have a car or does not even know how to drive. This
makes it a very good reason for getting to work late.
Appointments: Let us say
you have an appointment with your lawyer or even an accountant. Isn’t that a
good reason to miss work? In addition, who shouldn’t understand that? Well, may
be a crude boss. This makes it a nice excuse because you can use as many times
as you want.
No conveyance: You are
receiving a small salary that cannot buy you a car. You go to the bus station and
you miss it or it turns out to be late.
That is what we call a perfect reason for missing work. However, you
have to be careful not to use it many times.
Root canal: This is definitely a bad
idea. You have a root cavity or a fractured tooth and you have to visit a
dentist. That is a nice excuse; the only problem is that it cannot be faked.
Family emergency: It is not the business
of your boss to know your family matters, not unless he or she is a close
friend. This is a perfect reason for missing out work; but again this excuse
should not be overused, not unless you have evidence of the emergency for
example so may calls. Nevertheless, smart people can fake that, meaning you
have to be careful when using this excuse.
Child’s doctor appointment: Your child is
below ten years. Does he even know the way to the hospital? Who says that is
not a perfect reason to miss work? May be your boss who does have a family or
who has never been a child in his or her lifetime. Let us not be rude, it is
only missing work, we are just trying to get a perfect reason.
A school visit: This excuse will only
work best if your boss knows that you have school-going children. However,
school visits cannot be every now and then, thus, overusing this idea is not a
wise thing to do. If you use it once in a month, it will work best.
Babysitting: Let us say you are a mum,
your child is below three years, you do not have house help, and your husband
is working. That is a nice excuse. Am sure your boss will not even ask you more
questions after you say that. As long as you have a baby, you can use this
excuse as many times as you want. You just have to pray your little baby does
not grow old fast.
Migraine: Who has never had a headache? Not even your boss. It is of
course a bad idea but all you have to do is to go to your boss and say, “I have
a migraine attack”. The later will not even ask you to describe how you feel;
you will spend the rest of the day at home. Now that is a good idea.
procedures: No one wants to get sick; you need to stay healthy in your lifetime
even though that is probably not possible. That is why you come out with this
idea on a Friday afternoon just to make your weekend long enough. The problems
come out on Monday when you fall sick and you have to tell your boss. I guess
“I thought you went for a medical procedure on Friday…?” would be the query
for exam: Here is nice idea, you want to
be promoted in the company you are working, or your salary increased and that
is why you are doing a master’s course online. You have exams on Thursday and
Friday. That makes your weekend last for four good days. Not unless your boss
is jealous of you getting a salary increase. It is a nice idea but again you
have to be very careful when using it.
a Family Member: It does not matter if this idea is a true or false one. The
boss in this case should not know any of your family members or you friends
because he or she might consider asking them. Nevertheless, am sure, if you
present this idea well to your boss, you have a day off with you.
member illness: This is apparently a bad idea because no one wants his or her
family members ill. This also works best if your boss does not know any of your
family members. Using your dad, mum, sister, brother or close family members
will earn you a day or two off. Your boss will understand that everyone wants
to be close to his or her family members anyway.
accident: Your husband has had this fatal accident and is in the Intensive Care
Unit. If I were you, I would not use this idea. In addition, no one wants to
know why. Nevertheless, it is necessary to use it if you desperately need a day
or two off.
family: One thing when using this idea, you do not have to kill someone just to
use it. That is inhuman. Then if it is real, it is fine. You can even have a
week off. Moreover, if you are faking it
(God forbid), just pray hard it does not happen to the person you are faking it
weather: If you go to work on a Friday
and there is a heavy snowstorm in your area, then you are actually risking
getting stuck up in the city overnight. Your manager will obviously understand
that because am sure he also misses when he is in such kind of a situation.
That is a nice idea.
invade your home at night and steal your car, your credit cards and so many
other things you cannot survive without. We are saying to the manager but it is
not actually real, we are just trying to get a day off. This is quite a nice
idea. However, if your manager knows your home, you have to pray hard that he
does pass by to check on you and say sorry. You have to be wise while using
is probably not a nice idea no one wants his or her house burnt to ashes. Again,
fire cases are often brought out through the media. Your manager might consider
asking you why there was not such a case on TV. Then you might say it was only
in the kitchen. In case it is a serious case, you might be given a week off
your duties at work.
Purchase: Let’s talk about your car tires and you probably need to replace
them. It does not matter if it is true or false. This is a good idea. It does
not have be car tires only. You can think of other meaningful purchase that
will earn you an excuse of not attending work.
You cannot go to work only to come to a flooded house in the evening. Not even
your boss himself would do so. This brings up a nice idea.
Repair: its winter and your cannot survive with the furnace not working. We are
just saying it but it is not actually true. It just a day off that you are
looking. This is a unique idea that is not that easy to hear someone using.
You do not have to fear using this idea if it is actually true. You will
definitely get a day off. However, it would not be wise to lie about your
class: Your manager understands you are undertaking this part-time course. However,
you come up with this idea that you have a make-up class on Friday afternoon. Your
boss will of course understand that. It is not a bad idea after all.
arrested: This is a pretty nice idea. This excuse is however applicable after
missing work. Bad thing is , you probably have to tell your boss more about it.
insurance expired: Your insurance expired and you have to renew it. You cannot
go to work before renewing the latter. You give this excuse to your boss and he
surely will understand, not if he does not have a car.
Ladies are favorites when coming out with this sought of idea, of course not
men. In case, the boss is of the opposite gender, that’s a nice excuse. If your
boss is a woman, I guess you will have to mitigate her.
us imagine you have this itching pain on your knee. You give out an excuse to
your manager that you need to go for an x-ray. He or she will probably give you
an afternoon off. This will of course work if you are friendly to your manager.
Wife on labor:
So how about this thing of your wife getting into labor before the anticipated
time and as a loving and concerned husband you ought to be with her at this
very moment. So it’s obvious that a good boss will give in to such an excuse.
