Skipping school is a very bad habit especially when you start doing it frequently. It is fine to skip school once or twice a month if you actually need a break. But that too becomes tough as your parents won’t allow you to do so without any appropriate reason. But it is possible to convince your parents by applying certain hacks and techniques.
I personally used to be studious and tried not to skip school as I enjoyed being there with my classmates. But once in a while, even I used to skip school with my parent’s permission. But the situation becomes different if you have extremely strict parents and they won’t allow you to skip school for any lame excuses.
So here are the most effective and simple ways to skip school in 2022 which when applied correctly will help you to deceive your strict parents and take the day off. These new tricks have a build-up process that needs to be followed so that your parents tell you to take the leave by themselves.
1. Be straightforward and ask your parents for the leave
This is not a trick or hack. Just be straightforward and ask your parents whether you can take leave from school for that day only. Just tell the truth that you want a break from your studies and need a day to chill. If you are not feeling well you can tell the same.
Almost 50% parents would grant you the leave and ask you to stay home. But the other 50% includes the strict parents who think you are just doing this because you are not interested in studies and going to skip school just because you want to. The upcoming tricks will help you to convince strict parents who can’t grant you a day off.
Telling the truth will always help you and this is the cleanest and most modest way to take a day off from school. Yes, obviously you can’t roam around with your friends after your parents allow you the leave. It is great for students who actually want to rest at home and take the day off.
2. Fake a fever to skip your school for that day
This is the most efficient way that has been in the trend for ages. Children precisely students who are in schools generally fake a fever to get the day off. Faking a fever makes parents worry about their children and simultaneously they decide not to let them go to school. Faking fever needs a build-up and you need to plan this a day before.
There are several ways to fake a fever which have been mentioned in our previous article. You can fake a fever by using garlic, onions or the very old thermometer rub technique. It’s all about raising your body temperature. Your body temperature rises and along with that, you can fake symptoms of fever including headache, nausea and others to make the fever look real. Your parents although being strict will definitely fall for this and will themselves tell you to take the day off from school. But keep in mind that they could even call a doctor for a checkup.
3. Fake puking in the morning to skip school
Well, this does not work for all parents as in most cases vomiting is not really acknowledged as a medical condition by parents. But in some cases, this actually works. Compared to faking a fever, inducing fake vomiting when you wake up is really easy. Unlike faking fever, vomiting does not require a setup as it can be induced almost immediately.
The very old method of inducing your fingers down your throat allows you to vomit easily. You can wake up in the morning, do a fake vomit twice and say that you are having stomach and acidity issues. Your parents will definitely tell you to take a leave that day. But remember, if you are planning to hang out with your friends you won’t be allowed since you are already using the excuse of your health not being well.
4. Faking sickness
This is the easiest way to skip school and this actually needs a buildup from the very previous day. The success of this way depends on your creativity level and acting skills. You need to start acting like you are sick right from the previous night. You can fake coughing, sneezing and act like you have a serious cold.
Try going to sleep early the night previous to the day you are trying to take the leave on. Your parents will be confused about the fact and will ask you the reason behind the weird action. Go on with the fact that you are not feeling well and you have a serious cold. Keep on sneezing and coughing in front of them. You can add fake vomiting or fake fever in the morning to let them be sure about the fact that you are sick.
When your parents ask that you are sick and you do not need to go to school that day, do not reply with a yes immediately. Instead say no, you have several things to do in school which will be delayed if you do not make it to school that day. Don’t worry in the end, they will not allow you to go to school. This way can also help you get a 2-3 day break from school if the acting is perfect. But always be prepared for a checkup from your doctor.
5. Fake an injury
You can always fake an injury to skip school. This also requires acting and you may make excuses such as developing an ankle sprain or knee pain while you were playing on the grounds. You can add that your school nurse suggested you to stay at home and rest for 2 days. This also requires a build-up and while doing so do not actually hurt yourself. Instead, try acting better as this will help you to get the holiday. If that’s a success you need to enjoy your day at home as you cannot go out because of the excuse given by you.
6. Change the timings of alarm clocks
Most people when they sleep, wake up by the call of an alarm clock. If that is the case with your parents this trick will definitely work. The previous night you just need to seek into their rooms, delay the alarm clock timing and move out.
You don’t need to go to school if they wake up late in the morning as the school bus has already left. You can also hide your dad’s car key so that he cannot drive and take you to school. Just wait for the time your school gate shuts down and then you are free to enjoy the whole day. The best part of this way is that unlike other excuses mentioned in this list, you can actually move out of your house and enjoy the day as the fault was committed by your parents.
7. Excuses, excuses and excuses
