As we hit the doldrums of winter, it becomes more and more tempting to fake sick and call out of work. But how?
Calling out sick is always a dicey proposition when you're a slave to capitalism — sometimes, even when you are sick, your boss can be a pill about it. So someone on Reddit asked for advice on how to convincingly call out. Here are the best tips, no doctor's note required.
