Eight Ways to Take a Day for Yourself

“I had to take my cat to the vet”

This is the perfect excuse to use because who’s going to question you going out of your way to tend to some poor, helpless creature? Just tell them that your precious cat was hit by a car and is in serious condition. Turns out you don’t have a cat? It’s time to make one up, or say it was a neighbor’s cat and you did the deed yourself. Whatever you do, don’t say it was your dog, because they’ll wonder why you didn’t talk about it before. Just a nice, quiet cat. And if they want you to produce the animal later, well then, poor Fluffy is going to have to take a turn for the worse and die (giving you days off for bereavement in the process?). We promise it won’t just get you a day off — you’ll get some much-needed sympathy as well.
