Careerbuilder.com released a study that showed nearly 30% of employees go to work when they are sick so they can use those days for when they are feeling well.
They surveyed 3,500 workers and 2,100 hiring managers about how and when people call in sick. Employers said more employees call in sick around the holidays, with December being the month most people call in sick.
Here are some strange excuses people used to call in sick.
