I agreed to do an extra shift, just to help out due to staffing issues, and now I really wish I hadn't! I feel I need to clarify! I am going to do the shift, I am just enjoying imaging for a little while what I would do to get out of it! So all you with a high work ethic don't worry! :)

Fake your own death then do a last minute recovery

Put some duct tape on your front bumper like it's holding the light on or something, call in and say you were in a traffic accident and can't make it.

Best Answer

Never tried that one before!

FOOD POISONING.<br />
It's the best excuse simply because it can happen spontaneously, YOU can't be blamed for it, and if anyone questions you about it you can threaten them with gross details. :P<br />
<br />
(My coworkers loved that excuse because it also happens to cover the symptoms of hangovers.)

Best Answer

Great idea, only I am a nurse and it takes A LOT of details to gross us out!
Although I like the cover for a handover, could just start drinking and then my problem is solved! (only joking!) :)

If that were me I'd be feeling another grannies funeral coming on again. A night shift? 200miles away then....

Ok, Since this is just a mind exercise and you are really going to fullfill your committment...you could have said that the pipes broke in the ba<x>sement.

Tell them you have a yeast infection and cant keep your hands out of your crotch.......hahahahaha

If you call in and say you have SARS... I wouldn't make you come to work.

Best Answer

Good idea, only I will be working in a hospital so that would probably backfire quite nicely! :)

Best Answer

Say "Sorry. My doctor says I need more sleep so I can't work the night shift. Gotta stay healthy!" XD

Best Answer

I am a nurse, so would be telling that to other nurses. Somehow I feel they might see right though it! :)

Best Answer

I think you should just do it because you said you would. <br />
Maybe they'll let you leave early if things are slow enough.

Best Answer

I know I am going to go and do it, I was just enjoying pretending I wasn't for the mental escape! Never get to leave on time, let alone early!

Best Answer

Oh. Just take an energy drink or something, I guess. A double shift is hard! Hopefully, they'll remember you volunteered when the time comes that you need time off.

Best Answer

Because you're not interested in keeping your job j/k

Best Answer

Good idea, honesty being the best policy and all that :)

Best Answer

No joy lol

Best Answer

You have to do it, because you made that mistake to say you would.

Best Answer

I know I do but I am just imaging for a little while that I can get out of it! I know full well I will end up doing it :)

Hang in there, you learned something good to know. We all have tried to please others at our expense!
