- Your tone of voice while making the phone call.
- Your story cannot have an impossible/unbelievable explanation.
- The time spent in planning the excuse.
- Making sure that you have a backstory ready.
- Not to change the story/excuse once you do return to work.
- Make up an excuse that leaves no room for questions and doubts.
Of course, once you do begin to frame a strong story for your excuse to miss work, you will easily understand why all these points are necessary. Many times, we wish to take an impromptu getaway with family/friends, want to stay home and spend a lazy day, or just take time off work and all the stress. When you’re in the mood to skip work and take a little “me time”, we’ve got your back. Just be careful while using any of the above mentioned excuses or any other you may think. You don’t want to hurt or upset anyone by making up any fictional stories. Remember, if anyone did find out that your excuse was a lie and you get caught, your reputation can be jeopardized. So keep your integrity at work intact and don’t make it into a habit
