I faked a shellfish allergy to get out of work early.
I’m 18-years-old and I was working at an f&b restaurant at the time. My managers know that I have prawn allergies and I serve many tables who order seafood with prawns.
One day we were super busy I felt like crap and wanted to just go home.
I ended up purposefully eating a piece of shrimp to make me break out and my face to swell up. My face was a little swollen but it isn’t life threatening or anything, I just break out in itchy rashes but that’s about it.
I told my manager I must have gotten seafood in me and insisted I must leave to see a doctor, exagerrating my symptoms and acting like I was gasping for air.
They were all worried and let me leave and I went home feeling like a king.
I spent the rest of the day at home playing games lol.
- I once told my boss that I just pooped in my pants and didn’t have any spare clothes, and he let me go home.
- How shellfish of you.
- Whale done.
- Your efforts are very ef-fish-ient
- I sea what you did there
