    OK folks heres my problem, got an interview on thursday that requires me to travel and stay over. Now I havent booked this off my work and am going to have to phone in sick over the two days. I need an excuse that wont get questioned and isnt too unbelievable.

    Any ideas are appreciated!

    Migraine is always a good one, and if you don't get the job you can always use it again for your next sick day. Good luck for the interview anyway pal.

    Sickness and the *, has a 48 hour exclusion for most places so it's doesn't spread.

    You'd feel guilty using that one but they wont question it.

    A good one is "I've got a bad dose of the runs. The smell is rotten and follows me no matter how much I wash/wipe. I'll still come in if you like ?"

    lf you work for the cooncil then 2 days sickie should be a breeze. Put a bit of believability into it and leave work an hour or two earlier the previous day due to stomach cramps and they wont expect you back in for a day or two.

    Good luck with the interview. :50:
