“If you’ve had to use sick days because you’ve actually been sick then you’re seriously missing out my friends. The trick is to stay perky and use sick days to just, erm, not go in.
Don’t overdo it on the coughing front the day before you want to take a sickie though, big giveaway. Just stick with the ever elusive '24-hour bug' - no one can prove a thing. Just remember not to answer the mobile phone while out shopping when you are supposed to be a spluttering, bedridden wreck.
Please note: taking a 'sickie' is very very naughty."
It's so very true and the answer to that day when you really need some time to yourself and to unwind... while someone else is paying. The text is copyright Vitaminwater of course.
