We’ve all been there – you have to get up and get ready to go to work, but you just can’t seem to do it! There are a number of reasons why this could be happening and the most frequent cause of excessive tiredness is the stress we have in our day to day lives. Sometimes when you are feeling tired it can be the first symptom of a virus or a cold, and other times you may be struggling with some mental health issues. We’ve all felt too tired to work sometimes, and when it happens once in a while, there is no actual reason behind it except the fact that we need some rest. If this is happening too frequently, maybe you’re not happy with your job, and you need to find a better place. Sometimes your body may be working against you just to tell you that there is something happening, and you need to get to the root of the problems.

In case you are feeling too tired or lazy to work only once in a few months, you should know that that is completely normal. Finding a good reason why you should stay home and explaining that to your boss or manager may be the tricky part. In days like these, you just wish you were in school again and your parent can give your teacher a call and tell them you are not feeling well. Well, we have some good news for you! In this article, we are going to give you a list of things to do when you are not feeling motivated enough to get up and start your day. Use this list with caution, and always use different excuses. If you rely on these things too often, you may get caught and you risk losing your job.

  1. House emergency

The first thing that you can use as an excuse and stay home in bed is to tell your supervisor that you are having a house emergency. You can also tell them that your car broke down and that it is being towed. In a case like this, they know that you cannot just abandon your vehicle in the middle of the road, and you can also show up at work several hours later when if you are feeling motivated.

  1. Plumbing issues

If you want to use a house emergency as an excuse, but you don’t want to have to show up at your job later in the day, then you can just say that a pipe burst in your home. We all know how stressful that is and we know that fixing it and cleaning up the mess can take hours. In addition to this, if you have (or say you have) wooden floors, then no one can tell you that you can leave the water there without cleaning. Water can and will damage the floors, so you can just say that you have to act right away. This is the perfect excuse that you should never overuse because your supervisor will become suspicious.

  1. Doctor’s appointment

We know that most people use this excuse, but what if you had something to back it up with? If you are feeling too tired to show up at work, you can tell your manager that you are not feeling well, or that you have a doctor’s appointment. In case you want your excuse to be valid, bestfakedoctorsnotes.net suggest you use a fake doctor’s note that is completely legal. You can choose the one that best fits your situation and show up to work the next day with it.

  1. Family member feeling sick

If you have kids, then this is something that you can use! It best works if your children are not in school and if they cannot tell anyone they are actually feeling well. Tell your boss that your kid is not feeling the best and you cannot find a nanny on such short notice. You can use the same excuse for your spouse, or even parents, just try to steer away from saying that your pet is feeling blue and you have to stay home to look after them.

  1. Delivery

This could work only if we are talking about a major purchase, and you should let your supervisor know that you will try to get to work, but just a little bit later. After a few hours, you can say that there was a delay or an issue with the service, and tell them that you cannot come that day at all. Use this excuse for big purchases, including big household appliances and furniture.

  1. Court date

The last thing that you can use as an excuse for missing work is to tell your boss that you have a court date. Know that they are going to need some background info, so you might tell them that you had an accident a while back, and now you just have to show up. A speeding ticket is another thing that is a good excuse but notes that you should never say you have to go to court for something serious.

Have you ever used any of these excuses to stay at home when you are not feeling ready to tackle the daily issues? Which one do you use the most and which one do you think would work best in emergency situations? Note that you should be careful about what you are doing, and you should stick to the same story with all of your coworkers.

In case you decide to go out when you’ve just told your boss that you are not feeling well, or if you’ve blamed the kids, then you should be extremely careful about where you go and what you do. Don’t get caught shopping if you are supposed to be in bed with high fever, and never post happy pictures on social media. Use different excuses, depending on the situation, and if you have someone to back up your story that would be even better. Good luck!
