Sick of Work? Print an Excuse

Want a day off, but need a note --- and you don't have a relative who's a doctor? The Excused Absence Network is the way to go, but it'll cost you.

For about $25, students and employees can buy excuse notes that appear to come from doctors or hospitals. Other options include a fake jury summons or an authentic-looking funeral service program complete with comforting poems and a list of pallbearers.

Some question whether the products are legal or ethical — or even work — but the company’s owners say they’re just helping people do something they would have done anyway.

Vison Matters should hope, since these templates sound like they are just Microsoft Word documents, that they don't wind up on P2P networks, as the buyers may have lower ethics than some of the rest of us.
