drops words like "trots," "montezuma's revenge," "squirts" or "number three." never fails. no one ever wants to ask questions and they know that time is usually a factor.

I've been milking the "oh, it snowed last night and my whole complex is blocked in from the plows" this winter.  Even when we only got like 2 inches of snow.    But I guess that'll only work if you actually have snow going on there.  Although it would be really funny to try it when it's been sunny and mild.

Easy one: Tell them you are taking the day off, no need for any excuses! Does your Boss call YOU with an excuse when he/she takes a day off from work? I've learned that if you are honest with your Employer, the MAJORITY of the time, he/she doesn't need an excuse from you. Try it, it works!  (but of course, don't take advantage of it either)

IF you have been a good employee to them and they value you as an employee AND (of course) you give them sufficient time to replace you for that shift- trust me- they won't need you to come up with some lame a$$ excuse to miss work for that day!  I prefer the guys that work for me to be honest and not BS me with excuses. If you just NEED a day off- just tell me, and give me the courtesy to have time enough to replace you for the day so that we don't have to go short handed- EVERYONE needs a break now and then. Most Employers understand this and have no problems with it- just as long as it doesn't become a habit that is......,
This one works for me.
