It's that time of year everyone's getting sick and some of us are just plain burned out. Here are some of the craziest and lames excuses people have used for calling in sick in 2017...

According to a new survey, 40% of us called in sick at least once this year when we WEREN'T really sick. That's up 5% from 2016. The most common reason was for a doctor's appointment.  But is that really "faking" a sick day?

The rest of the top five REAL reasons were:

"I just didn't feel like working."

"I wanted to relax"

"I wanted to sleep in"

And, "I needed to run errands."

What's the worst one you have heard a coworker use?
