For men with female bosses, you can try saying you're having "male problems". That'll at least confuse 'em.
Oh, wait, this comic is about when you're *actually* sick. In that case, just be as descriptive and "sharing" as possible. ^_^
"You don't want to know the details."
"Stuff coming out of both ends."
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA rocks!
Hahaha! :D <3 frame 4
I blew my nose and a thick, sinewy wire of snot mixed with coagulated blood came out and when I pulled it out I could feel it dislodge from about four inches inside my skull, followed by a torrent of fluid snot. So yeah, I have a cold.
Is what you can say if you want to use a based on real events, but still pretty original, story when calling in sick.
Wow that description is right on, I'd totally use that to call in sick.
Something like that happened to me Jenny.
I had a nose bleed so I went to the bathroom sink, then I tried to dislodge a booger that was blocking the flow and this juge, thick string of red stuff that looked like a bit of strawberry liquorice comes out about 8" (No joke!)
I love how much people refer to the 4th frame as being exceptional, like they're surprised to find the punchline at the end of the comic.
How come Missy's shirts are always wrinkly? Everyone else's shirts are not wrinkly.
Missy is a busy lady, of course her shirts are wrinkly.
