Our dog ate our blog. Has a nice ring to it. But we can’t see an alibi like that flying with the sharp editorial minds of AllBiz.com.
If you’re as bad at lying as we are, consider contacting Darl Waterhouse and John Liddell. They built an entire business around fibs your boss, girlfriend or whoever will find credible. It’s called the Excused Absence Network and Waterhouse and Liddel would have you believe that it’s run from Liddell’s home in Thackerville, Oklahoma. (That part sounds real enough.)
It’s every slacker’s dream come true. Need a day or two off from work? Just go to the site and you can buy an authentic-looking excuse for $25. They range from a counterfeit jury summons to a bogus funeral service program.
Or you might choose your son’s ballet recital (if you don’t mind people thinking your son wears a leotard).
Excused Absence Network furnishes customers with various templates. You simply enter the address and name of a doctor, county courthouse or emergency room and print it out.
Waterhouse does not recommend one excuse over another. But he notes that there are laws against releasing patients’ medical information.
You supply the cast and crutches.
