Man Pretends To Faint To Get Out Of Work And Netizens Are Taking Notes
We’ve all had days where we desperately wanted to get out of work, haven’t we? Usually most of us just suck it up and try to get our tasks done quickly so we can leave already. But Twitter user @ElpedroThe2nd took it up a notch by pretending to faint while working.
The clip shared on his Twitter shows CCTV footage of him clutching his head and dramatically falling down while working.
What’s the best way you’ve ever blagged getting off work sick this is mine it was Boxing Day I was hungover and 18 and wanted to go out later so decided to pull this off 😭 made sure the manager was there as well pic.twitter.com/wIBuu2KWGL— elpedro ⭐️⭐️ (@ElpedroThe2nd) June 3, 2021
It didn’t take long for the video to go viral. And people had questions; the most frequent one being did it actually work. Well @ElpedroThe2nd confirmed it worked so well that he received a free “Lucozade and Galaxy bar” and was sent home.

People soon started sharing their own stories of outrageous things they've done to skip work.
Omg I did that too when I worked at giants back in the day. I fake passed out. And my dumbass was scared to wake up too early so I went all the way to hospital in an ambulance.— Queen Ki ^_^ (@itsMissKiki) June 4, 2021
Worked with a guy who said his uncle had died so took three weeks off to 'go to Pakistan' for the funeral. He got back to work and faked DVT, he was rolling around the floor, ended up being sent home so had two weeks off. Turns out he'd not even been on a plane the whole time 😂— Franky D (@FrankyDevitt) June 4, 2021
