How to Call In Sick The Day After St. Patrick’s Day

If you hit it up a little too hard yesterday for St. Patrick’s Day (or the entire weekend), and find yourself feeling 12 shade of terrible this morning . . . here are four tips on how to call in sick from work, without raising too many eyebrows . . .

1) Keep it brief and tell your boss as little as possible without being cryptic . . .

2) Acknowledge the bad timing of it being the day after St. Patrick’s Day . . .

3) Only tell people on a need-to-know basis.

4) Be realistic with your abilities. If you’re legitimately sick, it’s okay to say you won’t be available to answer emails or calls.
