so I went out last night to meet my recruitment consultant, and we went to Revolutions in Reading where they just stick free drinks of you. I had an empty stomach. My brother came out. We drank.

Today I wake up at 10.30, way past when i should get in to work. I've left a message on my bosses phone saying that I am unwell and was up in the middle of last night and to call me.

What should I say is my problem? I'm thinking period problems because he cant exactly ask for proof, and he is a rugby boy so hates 'women's stuff' because he gets embarassed. I also used the stomach upset excuse quite recently so cant do that.

Any better ideas?

You could say you were out drinking like a man and if he's a rugger bugger he will probably give you a pay rise.

A good one is "upset stomach... oh sorry I've got to go"

Then call back 30 mins later.

I think I wore that one thin when I had to be escorted back to my room at the last department off site meeting

:lol: you are my God! I think I'm going to do it just as an experiment.

Is thrush really worthy of a day off though? I suppose if its itchy enough.

Ironically, I've never actually had thrush or cystitus, I must be the only yeast free woman in the western world so far.


Argh bollocks... how does this fit with being up in the middle of the night?

Tell him your twat was so itchy you couldn't sleep and had to get up to smear yoghurt over it.

I am so tempted to say this now. The thing is, I really want to say it to his face to see the horror dawn on him.

He told me once that a female employee went to him to tell him she was having a breast reduction, and he was horrified because he didnt know where to look.

Say the only thing that helps is inserting a yoghurt-garlic mix, yoz have to change that twice a night, and that you can't be at work because of the smell.

Well, if you dig lesbian vampires...

On the upside, it attracts the greek.

The "womans problem" is best. Lots of guys can't handle that.

It should work.

he hasnt rung me back which leads me to believe that a) he is off work too b) he doesnt care c) I have been fired

probably the latter
