Obviously the absolute best time to call in sick is when you’re actually sick. But, we all have been THERE. You know, there! Where you just need a mental health day. Or you’re having a bad hair day. Or you’re just too tired to get out of bed. It’s totally normal. And, while there’s an art to faking sick, there’s also a perfect time to do it. According to a survey taken by HR specialists Attest, you have a better chance of pulling off a fake sick day on a Tuesday. But, wait, there’s more. If you want it to be totally believable, place the call (or send the text) at 6:38 a.m. As far as best excuse for a fake sick day? The survey found “stomach problems” to be an ideal excuse, because it will likely make your boss think that what happens in your bathroom should stay in your bathroom! Boom. Sick day done!
