Work is sometimes absolutely terrible. There you were, chilling under a perfectly good air-conditioned space, and there comes your boss, asking you to start pulling your weight and do more stuff. Now what to say to your boss to get out of work? There are countless excuses and well, you should do whatever you can to avail them. Also, make sure that you don’t overact or underact. The right amount of balance shall do the trick, and you will end up making an impact.
- I have an Idea!
Make the face like you are one of the greatest strategists of the century and start saying that you were brainstorming a new idea. Tell your boss about your revolutionary and world-changing discovery. Tell them an idea that might work for sure. Depending on how well the boss knows you, this excuse might or might not work. Just pitch your next-generation idea so well that the boss will think you were actually working on it for the past few hours, and totally not slacking off. Tell about the new script you wanted to write or that new impossible-to-follow strategy that you would want to try. Anything works as long as you pitch it right.
- My Laptop is Hanging
What is that one thing that nobody can place their blame on and you will also be able to get away with? Just tell the boss that your laptop was hanging, and like all responsible people, you decided to leave it to its grim fate. You will get out of work for a few minutes but if your department has an IT guy, you are doomed. Just make sure to use this excuse if you have a crappy system or you have planned to release a virus on your system.
- My Grandma Just Died
It ain’t wrong to kill her if she is already in the grave, right guys? You can decide to kill your grandma once more or you can just say that you are missing your grandma right now who conveniently died a few years ago. And today is her anniversary so you have decided to take a few moments to honor her. You can alternatively take another route and decide to kill off your most hated uncle or aunt. Whatever you say, just do it with confidence and faking grief.
- I am Taking Inspiration From Something New
This is the best excuse to use when you are watching hello kitty videos or comedy shows. You can say that you were taking inspiration for the new project from something on YouTube. Maybe how the Jedi fight in the video was inspiring you to never give up on your ideas. This idea can just save you from untimely commitments.
- I Was Just Going to the Washroom
Make this excuse only if you are ready to spend the next five hours of your life in the washroom. Tell your boss that you are sick. Maybe it is because of the crappy food that you ate from the very cheap street vendor, or it is simply because you ate too much. Then go to the washroom and spend a lot of time there.
