Saying you have a fever usually does the trick, but a San Antonio woman went as far as to report a fake kidnapping so that she could have off from work.
Sheila Bailey Eubank told police that she was abducted by a man while withdrawing money from an ATM at the Security Service Federal Credit Union. He forced her to drive him around town for various drug deals before (according to her story) he assaulted her, tied her up with a rope and left her in the car where an officer on patrol eventually found her.
That sounds horrible! If it would have actually happened, at least.
When confronted by investigators, Eubank admitted “she simply wanted a day off from work and wanted attention."

Researchers took swabs from the key pads on numerous
ATMs in England in popular shopping centers and found some shocking results — that ATM key pads are disgusting.
After analyzing the swabs in a lab overnight, the researchers found that they contained bacteria that can cause sickness and diarrhea.
Said a researcher:
”We were surprised by our results because the ATM machines were shown to be heavily contaminated with bacteria; to the same level as nearby public lavatories.”
Ugh, this is really sick! Make sure to wash your hands after using an ATM!
