“The president wants to meet with me”

If you’re the brains of the operation, the one who always has a great plan, you definitely need a high-caliber excuse. Nobody’s going to buy that you got food poisoning, you’re way too smart for that, and everyone knows you know how to set up your own cable. So shoot for the stars and claim that the President insists on meeting with you about … something totally hush hush. Nope, you can’t even tell your boss. Or your boss’ boss. You don’t want the Secret Service to find out you’ve been spilling the details! You won’t just get a day off, you’ll make yourself look that much more important to your boss and your coworkers. Have they met the president? We didn’t think so! So stay tight-lipped about what you got up to on your day off when you get back to work and you should pull this one off in style.
