Usage Guidelines: When you want to break plans or deny invitations without being honest
Expiration: Never. But use sparingly…
Don’t act like you aren’t guilty of using this card. This terribly dishonest card is used to deceive people, you should all be ashamed! Haha, just kidding! Sometimes you need to get out of an engagement and “I dont want to go” doesn’t always cut it. It works like a charm doesn’t it? But please exercise caution! When you say you are sick, stay home. Don’t play the card then go off gallivanting through the city with your BFF’s. This card can go horribly wrong if misplayed. Trust me. When you tell your boss you can not attend the “4-hour snooze-fest seminar on how snails pro-create” because you are terribly ill, you will be fired when you make the Friday evening news for flashing people from atop a gay pride parade float! And not for your enthusiastic support of the gay community, but because you were LYING… Ok and maybe you are slightly inappropriate and that reflects poorly on the company, but that’s not the point is it? Liar.
WORD TO THE WISE: Do not overuse the “I’m sick but not really sick” card on the same person. They will catch on eventually or become overly concerned for your health and this is not what you want. If you find yourself repeatedly playing “liar” cards to get out of engagements with the same person, maybe you should rethink why they are in your life. It’s not fair to string people along. If their company is not desirable, stop being a coward and let them know you aren’t interested in what they have to offer.
