We all have made up excuses at one point to bail out from work, but what is important while making these excuses is to come up with lies that are actually believable.
Recently, a woman lied to her boss that her car got punctured due to a nail, due to which she cannot come to work. To add some support to her excuse, she sent him a picture of a nail stuck in a tyre, as a proof. But, it backfired as her lie got busted not only in front of her boss, but the internet had a field day with it too.
A Twitter user with the handle @sydneyywhitson shared the hilarious incident on social media. She posted the photo of tyre with a nail on Twitter and wrote, “My coworker called in (yet again) and said she had a nail on her tire that caused her to have a flat. I need everyone to stop what they’re doing and ZOOM IN TO THE NAIL IN THE PICTURE SHE SENT MY BOSS.”
Upon zooming in the picture, it can be clearly seen the nail is photoshopped onto the tyre. Twitterati couldn’t help but laugh over this fake photograph.
Several users also disclosed that this picture is taken from Google Images. A Twitter user with the handle @ItsNotPersonal0 wrote, ‘She literally used the first image that came up when u ask “how to fix a tire with a nail”’.
Clearly, fate was not in the woman’s favor. However, it could have helped if she had been a little more clever with making excuses.
