Totally against my work ethic, honest guv. My friend once asked me what excuse he could give his place of work for not going in that day, I told him that legally* they have to give you 2 days off for sickness and diarrhoea. Overheard him on the phone telling his boss he had a bad case of 'citizen's diarrhoea' :D
Might not be the best thread to reply to at work. Not really thought it through. You ever been caught out? Any elaborate lies?
*dunno whether it's legal or not, get off my case Columbo.
