It does happen sometimes that you wake up on a weekday and your bed is cozy, warm and is giving you the absolute best snuggly feeling. You notice the condensation on the window to the outside world and feel that setting even one foot out of bed today would be cold and uninviting. Real life is waiting, but you need a refresher day. You need an excuse to get out of your responsibility for just one day. Play hooky and relax without a care.
The calm feels good as you ignore the deadline to get out the door and into the rush of the mundane. Getting successfully out of work or school was the main goal and when the phone call is placed to speak of your debilitating 24 hour illness there is understanding and well wishes to get better. Then the dreaded sign off is said that freezes your heart for a moment, four words that strike fear into you. “I need a dr. note.” Oh no!
With the laptop next to your bed, you go online with a sudden inspiration to find the perfect way to write a deceptively clever and authentic looking note. A quick internet search and thousands of pages open before you letting you know this is a fairly often used method of breaking away from the real world. Hundreds of sites are available with the perfecting wording, methodology and even templates and directions for creating the perfect note. A few of the ones clicked on have forms with fields to fill out that generate the perfect tone of a real doctor office note.
A word of caution is needed and a few things your read online will verify this. In general a note that is used to get out of work or school is very often not checked on when used once in a blue moon. Employers and school officials do know that even if they call, a doctor or worker can only verify so much due to HIPA laws. Your information is confidential but it does behoove you to actually provide your real doctors name and contact information so that if there is a quick check, you are actually a registered patient.
There you have it, a relaxing flow of peace. A recharging day to yourself and just a few clicks later and the rest of day is yours to enjoy.
