Today would have been WAY too obvious. If you’re going to fake being sick, what day of the week is best and what is the best excuse? According to a study by Attest market research company it’s Tuesday and the best excuse is “stomach problems”.
A survey of 1,000 employees found the best time to call in for a sick day is Tuesday morning at 6.38. Perhaps if you call in later it looks like you just don’t want to get out of bed. Calling in earlier could look like you’ve been up all night with your illness.
The study also revealed that people call in fake sick more often in November and December.
