7 Perfect Excuses To Get Out Of Work Early And Enjoy The Sun This Afternoon

It's literally too hot to work

Enjoying Sun

If you've clicked on this, you're seriously considering sneaking out of work a little bit early so you can enjoy the hottest day of the year. And we don't blame you.

We've put together a list of potential excuses you could use to leave early, but of course we don't expect any of you would actually use any of them – you're far too dedicated to your job for that carry on.

Still, there's no harm in having a look...

1. Have to meet your landlord

Ugh, your landlord is so inconsiderate, arranging to meet you about an hour before you finish work to discuss... something important. And it just can't be rescheduled... for some reason. 

Hey, you don't wanna leave early either, but it can't be helped.

2. Dentist

Damn, you completely forgot you had a dentist appointment this afternoon! You would've told the boss earlier but, of course, it had completely slipped your mind.

You'd better hurry!

3. Special delivery

"Would you believe, I'm getting enough coal delivered to last me until spring. Seriously though, would you believe that?"

4. Food poisoning

You feckin' knew that chicken you had at lunch was off. Look, your boss doesn't even wanna know what's going on in your intestines right now, you'd better just do everyone a favour and go home pronto.

5. Home emergency

Oh no! The neighbours just called, the alarm's after going off. If maybe there's smoke coming from the kitchen. Better check it out! 

Sounds serious, but you're pretty sure this incident will never be spoken of again.

6. Pet needs to go to the vet

It ain't gonna bring itself, is it?

"Just don't ask me for any additional information about the pet's illness and/or the vet's name."

7. Family stuff

Look it's quite personal actually and you don't want to go into it, but suffice it to say you're going to need to leave the office about an hour early today. Maybe two.

And if they should pry, hit 'em with a little...
