A woman’s devious plan to skip work is making its rounds, as social media users are calling her bluff.
Her excuse involves a doctored image, shared by her coworker Sydney Whitson, that depicts a tire being punctured by a nail.
“My coworker called in and said she had a nail on her tire that caused her to have a flat,” the Twitter user wrote. However, she added, “I need everyone to zoom into the nail in the picture.”
The nail looks dubious, and it appears to have been photoshopped over the tire.
The photo has garnered over 200,000 likes, and many are in hysterics as the nail looks like an emoji upon closer inspection.
Others question why the employee did not use a more realistic photo online. “She literally used the first image that came up when you ask, ‘how to fix a tire with a nail’,” one Twitter user points out after running a search online.
Some Twitter users argue that sharing the image online is unprofessional, as a boss should not have disclosed such details with others.
