Perfect … unless your boss decides to call 911. Perhaps it’s best if we pepper in the Super Bowl just a smidge. I mean, who would actually believe you didn’t watch the Super Bowl? Hell, maybe you even went to it.

The whole pants excuse might be asking a bit much. Then again, maybe not. See how far you can push it. Who knows, the boss might not even care that you’re hungover.

Boom, sympathy achieved. With any luck, the boss will feel so bad for you that they actually give you those Mondays off. Just don’t tell them you only had $36 in your savings to begin with and you’re in the clear. You’re welcome.
