Work Stoppage

Yes, I was out on Friday, and yes I have a doctor's note. Well, not really, I was just out for the day, burning my last personal day at work. Though it was interesting, searching on Google for a picture under the term "doctor's note" actually yielded a site that plys its trade in...you guessed it, fake doctor's notes.

For only $9.95, you can get your own fake doctor's note. Personally, I think it's a waste of $9.95, when you could just go to your personal doctor and ask them for a note, if you're friendly enough with them. However, if your doctor is a prick you can't stand, then maybe the internet IS a good option. I'm just trying to save you all some money here, and with that I include the Mr. Controversy Excuse of Absense Note.

"Dear [Name of Employer],

I am unfortunately unable to attend work on [insert date(s) here]. The reason for this is because, I am a Controversy Crusader. As such, I am indebted to the cause of creating a controversy around things that should not exist in this world. These tyrannys do not rest, and nor do I, so unfortunately I must take the fight to "them". Whomever "they" may be, "they" are in for a serious ass whooping, and I shall be the one to deliver it. Not just for me, not just for America, but for the world.

I must be off,

[Your Name]"

Sorry for the absences folks, I'll get back to writing, I swear.

You should charge for that.

If I could get anyone to pay for my writing, I'd have set up a deal to distribute The Devil V. George W. Bush in paperback. Though, I'd still love to do that sometime.

Dave B. said...

I think it's a healthy endeavor.

There ARE online do it yourself publishing companies, ya know.

Mr. Controversy said...

I know. It's just that distribution is the problem, plus I'd have to do all the legwork myself to push it on the unsuspecting public. (I'd actually like to make a profit off the damn thing, and put it towards future publishings, hopefully culminating in a book company publishing a work of mine.) It's still an option though.
