Using a Doctor’s Note for Vacation

There comes a time in all of our lives where we just need a break.. just a bit of simple time off.  Our work life can be hectic, especially here in the United States.  Let’s just admit that we are overworked and underpaid, and we often do not get enough vacation days.

Ever since the internet started, there have been all kinds of interesting sites.  One type of site, in particular, is the fake doctor’s note site. That’s right — many of these weird sites have started on the internet that allow people to edit and download fake doctor’s notes.  Are they legit? Well, some are.  Are they legal? Well, somewhat.  Are they worthwhile? Yes, they are. 🙂

To start, you must do your due diligence and find a site that has valid age, reviews, and testimonials.  After that, it is best to find one that offers true value and ideally models their notes after real doctor’s notes. You also might want to check out some review sites such as this one.

Once you’ve picked a site (we like, you can then proceed to order one. Some sites sell one note while others sell a bundle of notes.  The best is to buy a bundle so you have many to work with.

Once everything’s all set up, then the fun begins: simply fill out the note to fit your needs. Remember to never impersonate a real doctor or hospital, as this is likely very illegal.  Once you have that done, you can download the note and print from your home computer. I”ve tested many printers, and I find that ink-jet printers work the best.  Trim the white off of the note and give it a ruffled look to give it a bit of age and authenticity.

Next fax the note to your work or school.  Another option is to email it or .. if you’re feeling dangerous — submit it by hand.  Don’t worry, these almost always work perfectly.  I wish you the very best of luck!
