Are you feeling ok right now? I wasn’t feeling to well when I recorded this, but I can’t exactly call in sick. I’m my own boss! If you’re wanting to call off work, you’ll need a great excuse. Your communication skills have to be convincing and effective. It’s not easy to do, even if you’re normally a talented “actor”. Your employer may beleive you, though, if you use this service I found called Make Yourself Sick.
Make Yourself Sick helps you to be more sick than you really are (which is not at all!). You’ll receive a number to call with your phone. Leave your message – and make sure you pause in places. After you are finished recording, go back to the website and key in the number you just called from. It will play back your message.
Now, throw in random sound effects, such as a cough, sneeze and more. There are some pretty graphic sounds! Add them into your recording wherever you want, specifically during the pauses. It may be a little disgusting, but it gets the point across.
Once you’re done recording and mixing it up, you can have it sent to your employer’s phone. Type in their number, and click the “Call in Sick” button. What’s cool is not only will it call the number, but it also sends a text message stating that one of their employees really need to talk to them.
This is a lot of fun to play with, and may actually work for you! Set background effects, and change the audio to make it sound like you have a cold. It does a fairly convincing job.
Spring has sprung – get yourself sick today!
