Do you feign sickness just to have time off from work/school?

I admit, when I was in college, if I wouldn't feel like attending some classes, I would inform my prof I have a fever or something but most of the times I have a self-declared holiday so I wont go to school. lol! And I still do that now that Im already working. What about you? Do you also do that? Or you have some techniques just to have time off from work?=)

I used to do it when I worked full-time and had sick days. I had about 6 per year and I am usually never sick so I would usually call in sick on a Friday and Monday and I'd get 3, 4 day week-ends. Besides if I didn't take those days they would have had to pay me extra for those days anyway, so it's not like my employer was loosing anything.

Haha, nope, I can't say I've ever done that. I hate missing school because I have 4 AP classes and then I just get really behind on make up work or understanding the notes (after I GET the notes!)
