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?

use the tools you have
(my sister and her friends went on mission to Romania and all came back with scurvy)

My best sickie? When I was about 10 I was off school for 3 months with a nasty virus, everyone was very worried about me and I couldn't leave the house without having an asthma attack (was winter). So when I went back to school everyone was uber-concerned, adn if there was somethign I didn't want to do (playtime when it was cold, country dancing, just about anythign) I would say I had a tummyache or headache and get excused to sit on the carpet reading (I love reading). Best 'get out of anythign not fun for free' card I ever had.

Same with my asthma at school, the twunt of a PE teacher used to make me do cross country every week, every week I'd have an asthma attack and get sent home so I woudl milk that one as much as I could, too.

Don't pull sickies now as have always too much work to make up when I come back and it is not fair on the rest of the team.
