We’ve all had days where we are sick but can’t afford, don’t have time or a ride, or know we don’t really need to go to the doctor. Sometimes it’s a migraine, or food poisoning, or maybe your child is sick. Or sometimes you just need that extra personal day, from a night of too much fun or for a family activity that came up last minute, like a forgotten birthday or reunion or snow day for the kids. A lot of these cases don’t require going to an actual doctor, and yet your employer wants a doctors note. Sure, you could fake one, or print one off of one of those free sites, but are you willing to risk your financial stability and job on a flimsy free doctor’s note?
If you’re like the average worker, the answer is no! You need your job. There’s a better answer to your doctor note needs than those unreliable free sites.
One of the biggest problems using those free doctor note sites is there’s no number for your employer to call back on. What if you could have a note with a number on it that led them to a legitimate sounding office to avoid any questioning? That’s extra security!
Some forms you fill out give you a doctors note that is very clearly fake. It looks nothing like a real excuse! So you need a place you can get notes of variety to look like one that your local doctor might give you, so there’s no questions asked. Those free sites won’t offer you a variety. Making sure you use an excuse that is reasonable and logical to your situation is also important. Bringing your employer a note saying you were at the OB-GYN when you’re a male employee would raise some eyebrows and probably cost you your job. Make sure your doctors note not only looks legitimately but has a legitimate reason for your personal being as well.
Whether you need a doctors note to excuse you from school or work, and whether it is because you were really sick or just needed that extra personal day, you have to make sure to put your needs in the best hands. Free notes are free but they’re free for a reason, and you don’t want to put the chance of getting caught on the line because you used a non-guaranteed free site.
