      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

What's the best excuse that you have used to get out of work to go climbing/skiing/biking/having fun??

I ran out of dog food, and i had to get to the pet store to get their correct food, or they'd get, uhm, upset doggy tummies... They let me out two hours early..

Oh the pressure:

 

I did exclaim once that I would spontaeniously combust if I didn't get away from my computer but for the most part my "excuses" are simple and lame:

 

Migraine coming on

Have to get some work done on my car

 

What can I say, I am also a firm believer in the "mental health day."

I find the simple, classic "I've got to leave early today" usually the best.

 

I once used this to go fishing - while I was out, 1/3 of my company was laid off blush.gif

Why make excuses? Be honest. This was my approach when I quit MS. "Thanks for allowing me to work here in your cyber saltmine, but I quit. I'm going ice climbing."

So your company must use the Enie-Meanie-Miney-Moe method of workforce reduction?

More of a "We lost our funding - Everyone must go!"

I got the Clap, herpes, syphillis (sp?), the Ebola virus, and AIDS, you should really tell your grandmother to see a doctor, boss. I'll be fine by Monday.
