View Full Version : Excellent blags to get off work Friday - emergency circumcision


03-06-2002, 12:00 AM
Got this from The Grauniad on Saturday - an unbeatable sickie excuse to blag off work and watch the Argie game on Friday. Say to your boss you've had to have an emergency circumcision - he's hardly likely to want to check it out and see if you're telling the truth. Sadly though you have to be a boy to use this one as far as I know.:p

The people I feel sorry for are the ones that are genuinely ill, or have some family emergancy, on Friday. Nobody will believe anything.

But I have a Television in my office in Kennington and if anybody wants to come along then just ask :)

How about, "my girlfriends cat has just died and she's at work already, I couldn't possibly let her come home and face it alone, P.S. I should be able to get to work by about 3.00 p.m., hope you understand"

Why not be honest... "look, England are playing Argentina, it's the World Cup... it happens every 4 yrs. I will make up the day next week."

Would that work?

You obviously don't now my gaffer, secondly if all us posties took the day off, you'd soon moan when you don't get your credit card applications!

I can't understand all this 'Millions will be lost due to sickies blah blah' - not many will be stupid enough to try it, and as Mat ov correctly says (spit ;)) the people who are genuinely ill will feel soooooo stupid. I would rather go into work carrying an arm that had been ripped off in a hay bailer than go sick on Friday. It wouldn't be my arm mind you, and I would get funny looks in the office, besides I've booked it off anyway. I could always fall ill on a later (innocuous) date to recoup a days hols if I was so inclined.

Okay, we got one reasonably good excuse out of you lot so far - the girlfriend's cat's ill/dead/dying scenario. Perhaps following on from Mat ov's (spit:) sympathetic vote for genuinely ill people this Friday, can I be the first to extend my sympathies to those of you out there who are REALLY going to be circumcised this Friday. I suggest you ask the surgeon (or rabbi) to keep it for you to show to your boss as clearly no-one will otherwise believe you. Mind you, I for one wouldn't know what a piece of dead removed foreskin actually looked like so you could try to get something vaguely similar from a butcher's shop.

I won't need to come up with an excuse. I quit my job effective My 31st, and I won't be working again until after the final. THere was no way that my boss was going to understand me taking time off to watch "soccer" over here. So instead of getting in tons of trouble for being late every day and not showing up on others, I thought I'd simply quit.

Why do they call it soccer and nick the proper name football to give to thier sh1tty sport, a poofs rugby, where the ball hardly touches your feet. They make me so angry:grrr: :veryangry

and they have to have about 500 referees for the one game, and then they don't even call them refs, they call them umpires, which is not for football anyway, it's for our girly boys game of cricket where you have to hit the ball with a bat. Boy, does all that make me angry:veryangry :veryangry :veryangry :veryangry
