If you’re a mere mortal, you’ve probably woken up one morning knowing that going to work simply isn’t an option. Perhaps you had an extra drink (or seven) the night before and the throbbing headache and severe dehydration aren’t going anywhere. The hangover is here to stay for the next five hours.
So what do you do? Tough it out and somehow make it to work? Not ideal. Make up some pathetic excuse that your boss will see right through? Also not appealing.
So… Why not settle for honesty? Who knows, maybe someone will sympathize.
Business owner Blake Pendlebury chose this noble route when he needed to call in sick to work.
After an eventful afternoon at a horse race — with a successful bet, no less — Pendlebury consumed quite a few drinks, rendering him way too drunk to go to work. So he wrote a sick note… On Facebook.
Sorry Queensland, but you’ll have to settle for some other variety of pizza for one night.
Well, we appreciate the honesty…. And we empathize.
The racing event responsible for all this fun (and alcohol consumption) even got involved and congratulated him on his win.
Maybe we’ll take this approach from now on… No way it could go wrong. (h/t mashable)
