This is probably the best doctor’s note you will ever read

You can almost see the anger coming off the page...

When a doctor was asked to provide a sicknote for a patient whose employer demanded he PROVE he had the common cold, he told the suspicious company exactly what he thought.

Instead of short note, the doctor sent a short letter with just the right amount of ‘I can’t believe you made me do this bullsh*t’ to the employer:

“[The employee] has had, by their own report, a cold today and sensibly stayed home from work rather than spreading this to his colleagues/customers.

“I have no test for the common cold and therefore believe him, however you feel his time and mine should be wasted by making him sit in the walk in clinic for hours and me spending time writing a sick note that I could be spending on people who genuinely need my attention.

“Please reconsider your policy on this – there are surely better ways of wasting your tax dollars.”

ZIIIING. Great stuff.
