Lucky Cow by Mark Pett for November 07, 2004
Clare: Hi, I'm Clare! Let's face it - some days you shouldn't have to get up early for work. I mean, if your salary isn't rising, why should you? Avoid on-the-spot snags by keeping a list of phony excuses in your wallet or shoe. Remember, the best excuses are selfless, detailed, and non-verifiable. It's critical to have - and I can't emphasize enough - a co-worker you can manipulate. He or she may be your next alibi! Alternative entrances are a must for your repertoire, so you can avoid an awkward encounter with your boss. Don't be afraid to use time-tested classics like resetting company clocks and having co-workers punch in for you. Next, I'll show how you can slip in unnoticed, disguised as a sack of trash...that's coming up on "Clare Eye for the Late Guy"! Neil: Cable access, here we come!
