This is a question Awesome Sickies

A colleague has been off work for two weeks now - apparently he's got something they can't diagnose, (although they know for sure it's not Legionnaires, Malaria, BSE or AIDS, he's supposedly in isolation). We are all sure he's merely sitting in the sun waiting for the World Cup to come on the telly.

What have you invented to get off work?

I used to work for an investment company
in a call center, it was the most soul destroying job i've ever undertaken. After a week or so of having people scream at me for falls in the value of their investents due to a market drop, i'd had enough!
I rang up one morning and spoke to my team leader, who was nothing if not gullible. I lay on my back on my bed with my head hanging over the side so that i had difficulty talking and told him I was ill and wouldn't be able to make it in.
He said it was probably for the best, because I sounded so ill. While the rest of the department continued to get an ear bashing, I kicked back and chilled with a load of mates. I kept it up for a week and then mysteriously got better just before I would have had to get a sick note.
