13. Car accident
We’re pretty sure all managers know the story about the belt inside out, so don’t mention it in any way possible. There are plenty of variations on the topic, but this is what we suggest as the most reliable one: you call your boss and invent there was an accident on your way to work. It should be small enough not to appear in the news. Option one: you have to drive your car to the mechanic (who’s a friend of yours, and you didn’t get the receipt). Option two: you took the injured man/woman to the hospital.
