London UK: This is the essential guide of excuses to get out of work on St Patricks day when you have a hangover. St Patrick’s day in 2014 happens to fall on a Monday, which of course, you knew because you already downloaded our incredibly helpful, free St Patrick’s Day desktop background. This is hugely inconvenient considering that although celebrated all over the world, St Patrick’s Day is only a public holiday in Ireland. For those of us not residing on the emerald isle this could mean a slightly awkward phone call to the boss explaining why you will be unable to make it into the office.
Creating hangover excuses to get out of work is an art form and when done badly can be so transparent that your boss will be able to pick your story apart with ease. My advice is to drop the gravely voice and forced coughs and go big. Make your story so interesting and long winded that it makes your boss laugh and he applauds your creativity. You might even get a promotion, if your story is good enough. Make your story current or themed; see what is trending on twitter and incorporate it into your excuse. Extra points awarded for anything containing twerking or selfies.
If you are still looking at the screen blankly though blood shot eyes without enough energy or creativity to come up with a hangover excuse yourself then fear not. We have put our creative minds together – much like Power Rangers – and come up with 12 genius excuses to get out of work on St Patrick’s Day. Take them and run with them:
