Have you ever just wanted to not go to work but couldn't seem to come up with a good excuse? Maybe next time use this guy's method and be brutally honest.

Granted, Blake's honesty was about being too drunk to work. But it worked and people are praising him. Blake had a few too many drinks while betting on horse races with his friends.

Instead of struggle through a night at Gaslight Pizza, he wrote a note and put it on the restaurant's Facebook:

It is with bittersweet emotions that i must inform you all that gaslight is closed tonight. I am at the magic millions on the gold coast and a horse that i have a share in has just won a big race and i have had a few drinks and cannot make it back into work. I also do not have adequate backup in the culinary department and do not want to disappoint all of my regular, loyal customers with food that does not have my personal approval. I realize this is highly unprofessional and i have not taken the decision lightly. Rest assured that Gaslight will be open tomorrow for business as usual and i hope you will continue to support us in the future . Once again i apologize and have a great day, even though it cant be made greater by eating at gaslight. Blake

I should warn you though, you can try this with your boss and your result will probably be very different. Especially if you're too drunk to come in to work.
