“My child was in a fight”

Obviously only a worthwhile excuse for the parents we’ve got in the audience, a fictional schoolyard fight involving a very real child is golden when it comes to getting you out of the office. Fake a call from an angry teacher and you’re in the principal’s office — by which we mean the mall, or the beach, or just relaxing on your couch — in no time. Don’t fabricate anything too serious, of course, and you’ll want to be as vague about the matter as possible because people might be curious about such a juicy story! Just make sure to head off any pesky follow up questions by acting very embarrassed about your misbehaving offspring when you get back to work the next day.
