I've never used the "dying kinfolk" bit, for fear it would cause something terrible, like a "Twighlight Zone" episode.
Have I ever skipped a tradeshow to hang out at a world-class museum? Of course. I've also gone home instead of going to get research materials from
the archives . . . "I'm liable to be down in the basement the rest of the day, ya know . . ."
I've also been in a room where the instructor said he didn't want to be there. A girl said "if you mark our timesheets right now, we'll let you
fill out our evaluations yourself!"
We spent the rest of "training day" at the mall!
I guess I take enough pride in my various jobs that I only cheat when it is a demonstration of slacker virtuosity, and not something that's just . .
