22 Whacky Excuses to Skip Work That Your Boss Would Never Have Heard

Yesterday, you went in to work all bright and chirpy. Yesterday, you worked all day and over time. Yesterday, you were a model employee. But today is not that day. Today is not a day to work. If you’ve killed most of your relatives and given yourself enough diseases to make HR very suspicious, you need to pull out something more creative from the bag of excuses. As usual, we are here to help you out. Here are some clever, foolproof excuses to get you out of work today. But we must warn you, don’t read this post at work. Your boss may be lurking around.

Apple says my phone needs to wind down and relax for a day. Today is that day. I have to stay home and show some love.


My life is ruined, my partner left me, my dog died, and my parents have disowned me. I have no family left. There is no reason for me to have any savings, or work anymore. But since I’m a thorough professional, I’ll just take the day off. See you tomorrow.


I stepped on a pebble and now my balance is off. I shouldn’t be around heavy, or light machinery, today.

My overworked car deserves a day off. I’m too fabulous for public transport.


I’m protesting against the tyranny of weekdays. You can’t force me to go against my beliefs!


The supermarket is already out of chocolate. It’s going to be a bad day.


It seems like it’s going to rain. I need to gear up to chase the rainbow.



I’m calling in gay. It is a “disease,” isn’t it?


My app says I’m ovulating today. Must spend all day trying to get pregnant.


The irregular zebra crossing outside my house aggravates my OCD.


I miss Maggi.


Trials for Indian Idol are coming up soon. I must practice my vocals.


Now, enjoy your day off.
