I’ve been working for CBS Radio here in Detroit since December and I’m proud to say I haven’t missed a work day yet. That may have something to do with the fact that I love my job and have fun with it everyday. Unfortunately not everyone feels the same about their job and some people will do anything for a day off. Most people just call in sick, but Sheila Bailey Eubank from San Antonio Texas went to unbelievable lengths just to skip a day of work.
Playing hooky didn’t exactly turn out as the Texas woman had planned. Police found the woman tied up in the backseat of her car. Her explanation was that an unidentified man kidnapped her and made her drive him around to drug deals. Police uncovered a different story when they found surveillance video of Sheila buying lottery tickets at the same time of her reported kidnapping. When police showed Eubank’s the video she confessed to faking her own kidnapping to get out of work.
Apparently she ran out of excuses to call in sick and resorted to an extreme. What excuses have you told your boss in order to get out of work? Leave a comment below or call 313-298-1999
There are also a ton of country songs about work, but one of my favorites is Kenny Chesney’s ‘Shiftwork’
