The work from home excuse generator

Feeling like working from the comfort of your bed all day but not creative enough to come up with an excuse that doesn’t involve a burst water valve? Don’t worry – your new excuse is a click away.

Created by a group of San Francisco-based programmers - who’d spent far too long playing video game Heroes of the Storm and started brainstorming reasons why they’d want to spend the next bleary-eyed day in their pyjamas - Work From Home Ninja, or WFH.Ninja for short, throws up plenty of fake reasons to dodge the office, even asking users to submit entries and vote as to whether certain ones will ‘fly’ with bosses or not.

Another helpful programming shortcut involves variables and conditions, which basically means "I’ve been snowed in today” won't hit your screen at the height of summer. And that's not all: such is the way tech is moving, the makers of the site are currently working on a related app for wearable, allowing users to see excuses on a smartwatch and swipe the ones they don’t like, as well as the handy if P45-flouting function of sending an excuse directly to a manager.

Just be wary of the fact most responses are from the US - we’re not sure that a manager in Glasgow would have much sympathy for you catching your fictional child’s baseball game.
