FRIDAY THE 22ND OF
National 'PHONE IN SICK' day is planned
to be an annual holiday to happen on the forth Friday of every November.
This will be the first year that it happens and we need everyone's co-operation.
WHY SHOULD WE DO
In the U.K. we do not have a bank
holiday during November, and there is a long gap between the August bank
holiday and any statutory holidays that come around the Christmas period.
Everybody deserves a break before the onslaught of family arriving for
festive fun. (Also we know a lot of people with birthdays around this time).
WHAT SHOULD YOU
DO ON YOUR DAY OFF?
Go for a walk in the park. Stay in
bed (loved one optional). Invite your friends round for a party, (remember
to purchase your drinks the day before as the shops should be closed).
Watch videos. Play games. Do anything as long as it does not rely on public
or private services, as they will be shut.
HOW CAN WE DO IT?
Email this page to all your work colleagues,
send to friends, print this out and hand to anyone in the street. Distribute
freely and in mass. TELL EVERYONE. Make your excuses realistic, start a
couple of days before, make complaints about aches and pains, grumble about
headaches from your computer monitor or start coughing and state that it
could be very infectious. (This gives an excuse for your work colleagues
as well as yourself).
Here are some excuses for your need
of a day off:
You had to stay home and wait for a delivery.
You children are sick.
You couldn't call to tell them that you
wouldn't be coming in, because you had to wait for the phone repairman
to show up.
You had a twenty four hour flu.
You worked until midnight yesterday, and
was so tired when you left that you couldn't see straight.
You were preparing for your tax audit.
The Inland Revenue could not believe you survive on the pittance they pay
You were cleaning your parents' WW2 bomb
shelter and got locked in. You there for two days before they found you.
Luckily, there was plenty of food and water and a chemical toilet.
You were at the seaside when a whale beached
itself. You spent the last two days trying to push the poor thing back
into deep water.
You got amnesia three days ago when you
got hit in the head by an un-safe shelve in the office. It wasn't until
this morning that you suddenly remembered who you were. Some things are
You had acute food poisoning from the
works outing and you couldn't leave the bathroom.
The copier was ran out of paper and supplies
won't turn up till next week.
Your local G.P. said that employment was
leading you to an emotional and physical breakdown.
