I said, ‘the tarantula migration is in my front yard, and they’re endangered, so I have to wait for them to leave, I can’t go out to the bus.’
My boss says, ‘if you’re going to lie, at least lie realistically.’
So I said, ’*takes out phone* Click. Send.’
And that’s how I found out that boss was arachnophobic. And they never asked me for proof of anything again.
