Steal Our Sick Pics

If you're a football fan who wants to ditch work on Tuesday, we've got the tips and pics you need to pull it off.

Calling out sick after Monday Night's National Championship game? YOU NEED TO START PLANNING TODAY!

Here's everything you need to do to pull off your sick day, and feel free to steal any of our sick pics below for your "proof":

Mention to co-workers that someone close to you (spouse / child /
roommate / significant other / favorite Publix bagger) is already
‘fighting something nasty.’  This plants the seed that you’ve been
exposed.

THIS WEEKEND, SOCIAL MEDIA IS YOUR FRIEND.

Don’t post crazy party pics, ESPECIALLY if you normally do that.  You
don’t want anyone able to say ‘well they were fine on Saturday’ while
they reference a picture of you twerking on the bar at Applebee’s.

Also, post a ‘sick pic.’ We are providing some of these for you.  An
image of cold medicine or you in bed with the shades drawn at 2pm both
work. Pull into an urgent care and snap a selfie in the waiting room
and location tag it.  Your caption is ‘In the waiting room.’ Is that a
lie? NO!

ON MONDAY, YOU MUST CALL IN SICK

If you don’t, everyone will KNOW that your Tuesday-only illness is a
farce.  When you do this, you WILL hear from coworkers asking if you
are just setting things up for taking game day off.  When this
happens, DO NOT RESPOND USING YOUR VOICE.  Text them back and tell
them that you wish … then attach a different sick pic.

And, of course, during the game, be careful with social media. Sick
people aren’t eating buffalo chicken dip right out of the Crock-Pot
with a beer in hand.  Also, go totally dark on the internet at
halftime.

TUESDAY, YOU ARE STILL SICK, OBVIOUSLY

When you stumble out of bed at 6am to TEXT your boss, THAT’S when you
post something about the game to social.  Then go back to bed.
Everyone knows that people who watch the game post about it right
after it’s over.  But people who are on their deathbed and had to
crash out at halftime don’t post until the Nyquil wears off the next
morning.


WEDNESDAY, HEAD BACK TO WORK

Collect sympathy for being a die-hard fan but having to miss the game
due to illness.  And also feel free to talk to everyone … cause you
will be hoarse from screaming but everyone else will assume you just
had a bad sore throat!

And here's all the proof you need to really sell your sick on all your social media! Download and post any of these sick pics and enjoy your day off. 

Got kids? Tell them it's the youngins that are home sick!

Stay home with your soup that you obviously need...

Need something more heavy-duty? Break out the humidifier!
