Man Wastes Sickie Feeling Anxious About Taking Sickie


Parramatta local Peter Combe has wasted his Tuesday sickie feeling bad about taking the day he planned in advance with well-timed coughs in front of his boss on Monday afternoon.

“I started to get anxious about it around 9:15 this morning,” Combe said. “Instead of enjoying a day off, I ended up just pacing around the house in a state of paranoia.”

What’s worse, he added, is that this isn’t the first time it’s happened.

“I actually got an ulcer from all the worry last time I took a sickie. Next time I’ll make sure I have some Valium handy so I can actually feel well enough to enjoy my sick day.”
