20+ Bright Side Readers Shared the Most Creative Excuses They’ve Used to Avoid Going to Work

Each day, millions of people wake up early and head to their workplace only to hear their boss asking for a report to be delivered by 10 a.m., when it’s already 8 a.m. Every once in a while, they would like to escape their office and clear their minds for just a day, but that’s not always possible. People need to stick to a schedule and take responsibility for the job they were hired to do. However, sometimes they do find a way to skip the day. Our readers shared with us the most creative excuses they made up just to take a day off from work.

Bright Side came up with a collection of excuses that our readers told their bosses and we want to share them with you.
