Everyone (well, a LOT of people) has pulled a sickie at some point in their life; whether it be work, school, or some event you just can't be f'd showing up to.

What has been your best excuse (or lie) to this day?

State your situation and the excuse you used. Did it work? Why or why not?


If this is a duplicate, then, my bad :\

I actually don't use excuses since my place doesn't have the decency to actually allow tardies or absences with valid excuses other than FML call outs.

So I tell them over the phone: Eat me, i'm not coming in today.

My great-grand father died, I'm in mourning.

The genius thing about this is that I never actually met the man. Totally worked.

"I have class." or "I have too much homework."

Either of those two work perfectly :3

I don't particularly have excuses I use. Im just a very very smooth talker and can think of things right on the spot. For some reason I have been able to talk my self out of bad situations that I've been caught in. It's quite a useful talent.

No excuses. Give it to 'em straight up. :P

When I was younger, though, and still under the guise that lies solve everything, my best trump card not to go to school in the morning was to trip myself on the stairs or out on the driveway and pretend I was severely injured. Since I am naturally clumsy, I am well adept at knowing how to land after a fall without truly hurting myself (but still cause a loud enough 'thump' for my parents to THINK I was hurt), and I only pulled this trick twice in my lifetime, so my parents fully believed it. (Still do to this day.) I am not proud of it, but it happened. *sigh*

Nowadays, if I don't want to go to school, I just tell my mother that I didn't do a project that was due that day. Sadly, due to my procrastination, this is always the truth. She'll usually let me stay home and complete it.

A lot of the things that come out of my mouth people will assume is an excuse, strangely.

I told my Geo teacher back in high school that I wouldn't be attending class the following day due to my Aunt's burial. Little did she know that I wanted to go to a Culture Festival.

The next day I saw her at the festival.....and she saw me. Found out she pulled a sickie herself, saying she was visiting her sick mother-in-law in another town. I guess it worked out great for both of us

Lol the best one I use to bail out of school or some event is that I've got majorly bad cramps. Once I say that nobody asks anymore questions, if they're a girl it's because they understand, a guy because they don't wanna know any more details. Perfect.
