Guy Pretends To Faint At Work So He Can Go Out Partying

A British man admitted that he pretended to faint at work so that he could be allowed to leave and could then go out partying. Twitter user @ElPedroThe2nd shared a video along with a prompt: “What’s the best way you’ve ever blagged getting off work sick” Needless to say, his seems the most dedicated and involved!

  1. It was the day after Christmas and he really didn’t want to be at work. As the poster revealed, the video showed one Boxing Day (December 26) when he was younger and really would rather have been anywhere else than work. “This is mine it was Boxing Day I was hungover and 18 and wanted to go out later so decided to pull this off made sure the manager was there as well [sic],” he shared.
  2. Desperate times call for desperate measures. In the video, you can see him working at a supermarket and speaking to a woman at the tills who’s apparently his manager. Suddenly, he brings his hands to his face and starts falling over before allowing himself to drop totally to the floor. The manager is clearly in shock.
  3. This was an award-winning performance. You have to be pretty desperate to leave your job if you’re willing to throw yourself on the floor and feign fainting! In the comments, he revealed that he was actually given a free energy drink and chocolate bar before being sent home. He also said in the comments that he knew how to make it look like he hit his head without actually injuring himself. Looks like it worked!
  4. He did eventually tell his manager the truth. Shockingly, she took it well and he didn’t lose his job. “I broke the news to the woman in the video about year and half later at my pal’s gaff after a few beers,” he wrote. “She took it well thankfully, we all moved on so didn’t get the sack. One of the old boys had his suspicions he was cracking up when he found out.”
