Warning While this video is awesome, it didn't go to medical school. Always consult your doctor for actual medical advice. Step 1: Document it Send your boss an annoying "Reminder: I'm at the doctor's!" e-mail from the waiting room. Document your delay by attaching a photo of your surroundings. Step 2: Get on the scent Just before you leave the exam room, dab some rubbing alcohol on your pulse points. The scent screams, "Medicine was here!" Step 3: Rip off the bandage Back at the office, if you had blood taken, make a big show of removing the bandage in front of your supervisor. No blood spilled? Mark a spot on your arm with a red pen and cover with a cotton swab and bandage. Tip To lay it on extra thick, nibble on crackers and juice in the break room. Step 4: Leave the bottle Casually leave any prescriptions strewn about your desk. But keep some things private -- no one needs to know about certain meds. Step 5: Test your reflexes When your boss walks by, tell them you found out you have great reflexes. Hit yourself in the leg just below the knee and kick your leg forward. Step 6: Get a note Even if your manager's a real jerk, a note from your doctor is a foolproof solution. It worked to get you out of gym class, and the bullies in there were a lot worse than your boss. Did You Know? A report found that in the United Kingdom in 2008, 35 percent of sick days were taken on Mondays.
