Strange and Unusual Reasons to Take a Day Off from Office

Although you are an active worker of your company but one fine day when you wake up in the morning and you do not find to walk to office or you feel lazy or some of your friend or relative is taking you out somewhere then you have to give excuses to your manager for sure.

We all experience days when we want to bunk office for no good reason or may there be a reason but we do not want to tell about it to our boss. Everyone does it, so if you are planning to take a day off once in a while, it is normal.

But we need a convincing false excuse, something so god that our boss will believe it without a doubt. Some excuses are not to be given. So here are some most given excuses of all the time. These excuses are funny and weird but really work.

Have a look. But remember that honesty is the best policy, so always try to be honest to your manager and tell him the right reason because a lie can dampen your image and reputation and your relation with your boss and you can lose his trust.
