Cough. Cough.

Lovely little poll on KDKA’s homepage.

As you can see, roughly three quarters of Burghers have called their bosses and used their best croaky voice with an occasional interjected cough when they weren’t really sick so they could stay home and take care of things like mental health days (i.e. those days where if you go to work, you may wind up in jail for hurling your computer and the tech guy attached to it out the window), job interviews, Kennywood, sick child, golf, bad hair day, bad acne day, bad wardrobe day, etc.

The other 25% of those Burghers surveyed indicated that they are big fat liars when it comes to internet surveys.

    That’s why I say if you’re going to call in sick, stay home! Hilarious.
