In not-so-stunning news, it appears that every sick day taken by employees may not be due to genuine illness. The latest survey by CareerBuilder found that about a third of all call-ins last year were made by workers who simply opted to take the day off rather than save their sick time for when they actually needed it.

Traffic, bad weather, trouble with the kids, etc., are still quite popular, but some workers have begun digging a little deeper for a more elaborate excuse to avoid beating that dead horse right to the unemployment line.
