Yes, we know it’s only November but with December just around the corner and the start of the work Christmas parties we thought this we would be a good piece to kick off the holidays.
With 1 in 5 people calling in sick the day after the Christmas Party we thought we would share with you, six of the funniest excuses.
The reasons between men and women calling in sick are very different.
Women are more likely to call in sick because they have embarrassed themselves the night before or have argued with a colleague.
Men are more likely to call in sick because they needed more time to recharge their batteries. Also because they did not want to attend any meetings the following day.
Some of the typical excuses include, car problems, food poisoning, feeling sick etc.…
- “The music was too loud last night, it hurt my ears and I cannot hear today.”
- “I forgot to wash my clothes last night, I have no clean clothes.”
- “I ate too much food last night and now I feel sick.”
4. “I lost my wallet last night so now I have no money to pay for the train to work.”
5. “My brain hurts”
6.“I swallowed a spider.
So, as a warning to you all, if you’re going to go hard at the Christmas party maybe book the day after off work to avoid having to make up any silly excuses.
Side Note * none of these excuses came from anyone in the Connections Recruitment office. We are all very well behaved.
