14 Good Excuses to Miss Work on Short Notice

If you are planning to get a day off from work, but you don’t want to be nervous about, you will get some good excuses to Miss Work on short notice. As for me, I haven’t applied any of these excuses to get a day off. If I wanted to get a day off, I asked my boss to let me go. Mainly the reasons were true ad serious. Otherwise I had the annual holiday and that’s all. Now as I am a freelancer, I can have a day off whenever I want to. Reading through this funny compilation I have learnt some good excuses, though.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of good excuses to Miss Work on short notice from their list.

We are mentioning Allergic reaction for the first. This is one of the good excuses to miss work at night on our list of on our list of good excuses to miss work on short notice . Just say that you had something at lunch or dinner. Try to pick food which isn’t something you eat every day, like shrimps for example. On the other hand, if you’re really allergic to something such as nuts, you could always say the restaurant served you a cake with traces of nuts in it. The next excuse on our list now is car accident. We’re pretty sure all managers know the story about the belt inside out, so don’t mention it in any way possible. There are plenty of variations on the topic, but this is what we suggest as the most reliable one: you call your boss and invent there was an accident on your way to work. It should be small enough not to appear in the news. Option one: you have to drive your car to the mechanic (who’s a friend of yours, and you didn’t get the receipt). Option two: you took the injured man/woman to the hospital. At last, but not least, we can use the topic if Female Problems.  Which boss loves hearing about menstrual cramps? None of them. Female managers will usually show sympathy, while male bosses will just try to end the unpleasant conversation as soon as possible.
