The most important part about chucking a “sickie” is nailing the perfect excuse. The excuse can’t raise too many questions, and can’t be easily discredited.
One person who got this careful balance completely wrong was a US woman who said she couldn’t work due to a punctured car tire. She even went so far as to provide photo evidence. The trouble was; her photo evidence was a bit fishy.
When a colleauge posted the picture on Twitter, people were quick to point out the obvious flaw, and provide their own pics for future use.
