It happens to everyone, you wake up and just can't seem to make yourself go to work.

Fair warning- if you're feeling like playing hooky, it may not be the best idea for you to use any of these excuses. A survey showed that one in five employers say they have fired an employee for calling in sick with a fake reason.
