Fake Kids Get Folks Out Of Work

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – People with kids can get away with anything at work.

That’s why Melissa Maher created the “My Office Kid Kit,” which allows office employees to feign having a child so they can get out of work early for fake pediatrician appointments or to pick up their kid at school.

After years of picking up the slack for working parents, Maher thought she’d help others use the kid excuse to get out of pulling extra weight.

She says, “People without kids get screwed over. They end up staying later to make up for those who have to leave because they have kids. Us calling in for a hangover is not as important as a kid’s doctor’s appointment.”

The kit comes with a framed photo of a child – available in different ethnicities on theofficekid.com - a custom kiddie drawing, and a list of excuses to use on the boss.
