People get too sick to work all the time, and the responsible thing to do is to stay home and avoid infecting others—so, if you just say you're sick, who's to say that didn't happen to you? These bosses, that's who. So, fake a sick day if you must, but if you do, for the love of Ferris, keep your story simple and stay off Facebook.
1. Matt, whose daughter is intensive care at Incredibly General Hospital.
2. Kyle Doyle, who begged for proof he was faking it.
3. Ed, who has missed a bunch of days and needs to work on his excuses.
4. "Employee," who shall remain nameless (and jobless).
The manager of "employee" posted his bust on reddit with this note explaining his "managerial style."
"Let me preface this by saying I try to be a very fair employer. Everybody fucks up, that's how you learn, I get that. This management style will cause me to be taken advantage of from time to time. It's a fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, go fuck yourself if you get caught kind of thing."
5. This intern who called out sick and then got busted live on the radio
He can watch this video over and over again with all his new free time.
6. Kevin Colvin, who needed to spread his wings.
The message reads:
I just wanted to let you know that I will not be able to come into work tomorrow. Something came up at home and I had to go to New York this morning for the next couple of days. I apologize for the delayed notice.
Then he went to a Halloween party and posted this photo to Facebook
Kevin returned from the party to find this email from his boss waiting for him
