Women confess the best reasons they've "chucked a sickie."

Welcome to Mamamia’s confession series.

We post anonymous videos in which we share secrets from Mamamia staff, as well as any submitted by you. The topic for each video could be anything; life, love, eating, snooping. Nothing is off limits, and no-one is revealed.

If you’re not guilty of chucking a sickie, then you have not tested the boundaries of your life.

As citizens in the ‘land of the long weekend’, chucking a sickie coincides with being an everyday Australian.

Here the girls of the Mamamia Office confess the reasons as to why they have called the boss with a ‘croaky’ throat.
