Success TV - Wk 5: How to pull a sickie
Pulling A Sickie is a term used for some one who is not sick in any way but does not want to work on that particular day, however most times people are absent over something very serious such as having problems at home, or the death of a loved one and it can also be genuine illness. However I am focusing more on those who take sick days when there is nothing wrong with them and they may just not want to go to work or have had a late night out and been drinking and now have a splitting hangover, or maybe there is a store move to do and alot of overtime and they dont want to do it.
So when you pull a sickie be advised that you can only use certain excuses once and if you continue to people will get wise to you and catch you out. Here are a list of some excuses that people commonly use when pulling a sickie.
3. Sickness Bug
4. Swine Flu
5. Stomach Pains
6. Womens Troubles
Now you can see that I have only used six of them, but as we all know there are loads of them and they can be quite funny, however I have caught people out who have used these excuses once too often and I will show you how to do it. Usually after they have called you they can do one or two things some go shopping and dont realize that they can be seen on cameras and also by customers who know them and some times the customer may come to the shop after seeing them and say something with out realizing and drop them right in it.
Another thing that they do is text a friend or colleague that they work with who is either on shift or going on shift and may actually say something to someone else and then the boss may over hear them and thats them caught out again. So if you are gonna pull a sickie dont go shopping and dont text any one either because you will get caught, may be not straight away but eventually you will drop yourself right in it!
