Will you call in 'sick' for the first day of the NCAA Tournament?
March Madness is a real illness and it really needs to be recognized as a legitimate excuse to miss work.
It starts with the body. The first day of the NCAA Tournament, you wake up and your body is SO achy. The only thing that can make you comfortable is a couch or a bar stool.
Next, is that ominous tickle in your throat. The dryness is so unbearable, you need an ice cold alcoholic beverage served at a bar or from your refrigerator, specifically, because of the familiarity is key.
Lastly, itchy eyes are a huge part of the Madness. The soothing waves from television with incredible basketball is the only cure.
Go ahead and call in sick. You need the day to feel better.
People... it's 2019. You don't need to call in sick in order to enjoy the NCAA Tournament. We have this new fangled technology called the Internet that can let you both work and watch the first day of games.
Streaming the NCAA Tournament has become the preferred way of watching, especially at work. CBS and Turner know this and added the "Boss Button" years ago to facilitate your love while being a "productive" employee
Calling in sick is a weak move anyway. You can fake actually doing work and get your bosses respect as a good worker while your less tactful coworkers build a reputation for being unreliable.
