I was reviewing what searches brought most people to my blog. Besides the funny random ones like "junk in the trunk butts" and "can cats float" there were two that came up over and over again.
One is different variations of "Phototbucket Survey" which takes people to this post.
The other is "excuses to leave work early" or some variation (interestingly enough mostly from people in the uk, those lazies) which takes people to this post. No doubt they are sorely disappointed, so since apparently so many people are searching for this, I thought I would offer my 2 cents.
The trick is to not over use any one excuse, and to spread out the skipping out early as to not raise suspicion.
*If you are a woman, just say something really vague that eludes to a "female issue." No one wants to know anything more.
*Make up something really gross about your cat and just blab on and on about it matter-of-factly. "I need to leave at 3 today for a vet appointment. Mr. Whiskers has a bowel obstruction and lately blah blah blah..."
*Picking up a friend from the Airport.
*Doctor's appointment (make it with some kind of specialist because they usually have limited hours and only on certain hours so it is pretty feasible you would have to make the appointment during the week)
*Taking your grandma/great aunt/great great uncle to the neurologist/cardiologist/podiatrist.
*Meeting your landlord for a inspection.
*Meeting a cable/satelight/cable internet repair/installation person
Okay, thats all I've got for now. Like I said, the key is to not overuse anything and to not say things that people KNOW are excuses "headache," "not feeling well," "need to study," that kind of thing. Also give just enough details to be believable and/or creep the person out or make them feel sorry for you. You get super bonus points if you have to leave work for something you would detest. Like taking Mr. Whiskers to have his bowel obstruction cleared. Then when you come in the next day make sure you bitch about how much it cost.
