Happy Monday! Said no one ever. Looking for a reason to call in sick to work, when you're actually not? Thrillist put out a list of the most believable excuses according to bosses, and there's one that ranks surprisingly high.

Being actually sick, with back pain, migraines, having surgery or, at #1 on the list, the flu, are all there. But the 4th-most believable excuse? STRESS!

That's right! You can call in sick for stress! Also on the list, at #6 and #7, respectively, depression (which is a real, diagnosable thing) and anxiety.

But "stress" is the #4 most acceptable sick day excuse. Try it and tell me how it works out for you.

By the way, "nice weather" is not in the Top 10, unless you put it in the "none of the above" category.
