Thread: How to get off work on Friday

    Default How to get off work on Friday

    So my buddy is flying in from Chicago where he just started a new job. He says since he is new his boss won't give him both Friday and Monday off. He most definitely needs to take Monday off after the ridiculousness of the weekend, but missing Friday would blow. I told him to stop being a wank and just grab his boss by his fat head and tell him he's taking Friday off, but I am full of bad ideas (like asking for advice on this message board.)

    So any good ideas on how to get out of work on Friday?

    One of my best friends is an architect. And you're right, that explains it.

    Maybe, but he works for a top agency and i think they'd pretty much say "job or concert, you choose."

    he could ask to be allowed to work from his hotel room that Friday. join meetings by phone etc. then at 5pm Chicago time it's just 3 pm California time and he can catch most of the day at Coachella.

    good idea, he is camping, but he can probably get access to a phone/internet. thanks, he would never have thought of that.

    Since you are talking about architects , I heard a dumb engineer joke today … 3 guys are playing golf … a priest, a doctor, and an engineer … well they are at a hole waiting and waiting for these 3 guys ahead of them .. Finally they get tired of waiting and call over the greens guy …. “how come these guys are so friggin slow” …the greens guy says “they are 3 blind firemen that saved our clubhouse last year, and they lost their sight in the fire, so we let them play whenever they want” … the priest says “oh now I feel bad, I will go back to my church and pray for them” … the doc says “ I will call an eye surgeon friend of mine and see if he can help them” .. the engineer say “how come they can’t just play at night ?” well sort of lame but clean lol … cr*****

    Tell him to say that he has diarrhea so bad that he needs a tampon for his butthole. A guy I used to work with called in and said that, he got the entire weekend/shift off (fri-mon).............. It was funny as hell

    He could eat a bunch of mexican food beforehand and somehow prove he has diarrhea. Then, of course, pop some immodium.

    Geez, just call in sick or use a vacation day for Friday. Sometimes the best ideas are the simpliest ones.

    Doesn't his boss already know he's going to Coachella for the weekend? And he's already got Monday off, right? I know if I called in the day before a three day weekend, my boss would totally call shenanigans. It seems like the only way to get Friday off is to create some outrageous lie that would insinuate he is also missing the festival.

    That's both admirable and incredibly moronic.
