    Excuse for not showing up at work (humor)

    I went to supper at an old friend's house Saturday.
    His daughter is working at Martin's grocery store. One of her co-workers called in sick one day. When the manager asked the employee why she could not come to work today, the young lady said, "I have a medically-induced coma."


    I thought I'd share that. I personally have never used that excuse, but I might in the future.

    Took some imagination, but that is a new one for me too.

    Being in a coma hasn't stop some of my coworkers from showing up to work.

    I've always appreciated "I had to take a mental health day!"

    I have my interview with another company tomorrow. I am either going with

    1. Doctor's appointment
    2. Personal errand
    3. Sick
    4. medically induced coma

    I haven't decided which.

    they would know it is a lie. Considering my lanyard, current phone ring, current notifications on my phone, my coffee mug, and every Friday during football season I wear a Bama polo, they would likely believe the medically induced coma before they would believe that.
