The Old ‘My Foot Was Stuck in a Garbage Disposal’ Excuse


A new CareerBuilder survey says a rise in job stress and burnout during a slagging economy is causing a rise in bogus sick days, with three out of ten workers admitting to making up excuses and more than a quarter of employers reporting an increase. According to the survey, someone actually did call in “sick” with garbage-disposal foot, and we think we know who it was. He was probably just trying to clean off the grease from the George Foreman grill. [Chicago Tribune via peHUB]
