Research Reveals The Best Time To Call In Sick (If You Want To Get Away With It).
Even the most devoted, loyal, and hardworking employee has the need to call in sick every once in a while. It doesn’t mean you are ill at all, it just means you need a break from work, co-workers, and even your boss. There are some days when you just want to stay home and watch TV or if you are daring, go to the beach to enjoy the sun and the waves.
Calling in sick when you are perfectly healthy without getting caught is a work of art. You don’t want to sound too dramatic where your boss knows you are faking it and you don’t want to downplay how you’re feeling to the point where you sound too healthy to take the day off.
There is even a time and day of the week where telling your boss you’re using a sick day to get better will go unnoticed. That’s the ultimate goal too, not to create any suspicion at work so you can try the same scheme all over again in a couple of months.
Calling in sick on a Friday and Monday is way too obvious and will make your direct supervisor suspicious.
