It's often tempting to phone in to work sick, but is your boss going to believe you ?
Well, what if someone phoned on your behalf ? Someone VERY convincing, giving an accurate and detailed description of your suffering ?
Look no further. Just call the BorgCo Employment Services toll-free number
(but make sure you have a major credit card to hand). Give the operator your details, and within minutes your local medically diagnosed and certified MBP operative will be on their way to you.
When they arrive, they call your boss for you, and explain that they're your neighbour and you're too ill to come to the phone. Should a suspicious boss call back, they'll be sitting there to take the call, ready to reel of a catalog of symptoms in an anxious and convincing way. Even the most flinty-hearted despot will find it hard to get round that one.
So, you get a day off, the MBP sufferer gets their "fix" of vicarious attention, and, coincidentally, BorgCo makes even more money ......
