We’ve all been there. You wake up with a stuffy nose and a headache, and you just know it’s going to be “one of those days”.

Step 1 – We Establish Your Excuse:
First things first, let’s establish what illness or ailment has struck us down recently.

The Fabled Migraine
we’ve said it before: if you’re gonna fake something then go big; well…not so big as faking cancer.
A migraine is perfect for those who want to convince their boss that they’re beyond functioning while still sounding professional.
