Lying to your boss has never been so easy thanks to Skiver, an Android app that allows users to come up with the perfect cover story to fool their boss into thinking they are genuinely ill.
First you need to select how many days off you need to get a list of plausible illnesses along with symptoms to ensure for the full cover story. Then you can either call your boss, or use a pre-filled email function that can be sent directly to your boss to inform him or her of your absence. It’s that easy!
But wait – there’s more. The idea is not to waste your day, lying in bad bed watching daytime TV again. Skiver can also suggest activities to fill a “sickie day.” The application relies on Google Maps to find current activities in the user’s area, from music events and cinemas, to galleries and museums.
According to Skiver press release, the first week in February is traditionally the peak time for the winter blues to strike and workers to call in sick. The fact that three quarters of the country’s skivers prefer to fake illnesses on a Monday means that today, February 7th will be the most popular day of the year for workers to “throw a sickie.” So what are you waiting for – grab Skiver from the Android Market now! 🙂
