PEDESTRIAN.TV has teamed up with Skyscanner to help you take a break.

Look, sometimes you just need a day off. Maybe you’ve got an event on, feel like taking off for a cheeky holiday or you’re just really keen for a sleep in – whatever the reasoning, you wake up that morning and decide to yourself that evading the humdrum drudgery of your day job is a necessity.

So now you must craft it – the perfect excuse. It’s a delicate balance; believable enough to guarantee time off but also not intense enough that it would warrant further questioning. These humans know the drill, so take a page out of their books if you’re brave.

And if you need any more reason to wanna play hooky, do yourself a favour and head to Skyscanner for some hectic January deals to cure those back to work blues. You can get your work-dodging self from Sydney to Vancouver from $1050 return via Air Canada, or off to LA from $884 return via Virgin Australia if you’re feeling up to the trip – ‘coz you’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately, right?

*Cough*.
