I think that even with working from home we all need a break, and with all thats going on around us its easy to just lose it! the perfect solution? The Mental Health Day. well it turns out over half of us have faked a sick day, according to a new survey. The most common reasons are to take a mental health day . . . when you're not sick, but just don't feel good . . . and to go to a doctor's appointment. And people in Connecticut are the most likely to fake a sick day, while people in Wisconsin do it the least. Around here, Texas checks in at 17th, New Mexico 5th, and Arizona 22nd
Here are a few more stats on faking a sick day . . .
1. Monday is the most popular day of the week to call in sick when you're not. And a third of us have used a sick day after a holiday.
2. On average, we give our boss a heads up six hours before work starts. But 3% have called in sick AFTER they were supposed to be there.
3. Calling on the phone is still the most popular way to do it, followed by texting.
