How to Fake Sick to Skip School

November 11, 2019

Ugh school’s coming back. If only there was
some way to get out of it. I mean it’s not like you can just drop out, right?
Wait- can I do that? DAD? So I just found out, it’s probably not the best idea. Something
about being a failure, already being enough of a disappointment as
it- you know what, honestly I wasn’t really listening that much,
uh so whatever, but the good news is, there’s another way. One that doesn’t involve minimum
wage jobs for the rest of my life. Alright hear me out for a second. Faking sick.
What? Who is this guy? Yeah. I’m a genius. Faking sick to me is an art,
and I’ve put in so much time and effort that it’s an art that I’ve mastered. And today,
I’m passing on all of my wisdom to you guys. Also my mom’s probably gonna watch this video
and recognize these moves so um… I got you! The goal in faking sick is to trick your parents
into beliving you. If your are vouching for you, even your teacher can’t make you come
in. But parents are smart! I mean, when they were
your age, they were probably doing the exact same thing.
You gotta make your sickness seem legit, and to do so, it’s gonna take some work. The first
thing you wanna do, even before faking sick, is to make school seem like it’s your priority.
“Aw man, we have this super cool assignment tomorrow and I’m so excited to hand it in.”
“Tomorrow’s pizza day, alright? I’m not missing that.” Setting this up is super critical because
when you suddenly get sick, you’re gonna be more disappointed that you
can’t go to school than your parents are, and that makes you being sick, all the more
believable. “Aw man I really want to hand this 10-page
essay that’s- it’s so finished, but I *coughs* I can’t, so.. I’m sorry.” Next thing you’re gonna wanna do is to pick
a sickness and to stick to it. If you’re trying to convince your parents that you’re sick,
you’re gonna need some proof and that involves research. What temperature do you need to
be to have a fever? What are all the symptoms of having a cold?
What does puking sound like? It’s the homework that you wished you’d been assigned. No?
Just me? Oh. Puking is definitely the easiest to fake cause it just involves going to the
washroom and doing this sound for a while. *puking sounds* *coughing sounds*
The cough’s I’m just throwing in for good measure. Because I’m an actor, dammit. But
hey, you can’t puke everytime so try giving yourself a fever.
All you gotta do is soak a towel in some hot water and leave it on your forehead so when
your parents feel your forehead they’ll be like,
“aw, you’re burning up, you can’t go to school!” What’s risky here is you only have so much
time between drying your forehead and getting your parents to feel your forehead,
so you gotta act fast. Okay so I got my towel here, and I’m just
gonna apply it. Let it sit there for a while, so you get all warmed up.
*coughs* Hey Juan can you *coughs* can you come take my temperature I think I’m *cough*
sick. Okay Andrew?
Yeah. I’m not your father. You’re an adult.
Yeah. And you don’t even have anything
to be sick for because you’re a sad, pathetic, unemployed, loser.
Oh yeah. And that’s how you fake sick! Remember to
not overuse this. If you do it too much it’s gonna become way too obvious that you’re faking,
and then it’ll just never work again. So don’t be sick every other day. Wait until there’s
an assignment due tomorrow that you haven’t even started.
Or until something super embarassing just happened at school and you, you can’t show
your face there. Or you know, Friday. Anyways that’s all for the video, I hope you
enjoyed it. If you did, be sure to give it a thumbs up. On my last video I asked for
1,500 likes, and it got over 2,000 in 3 days, which is
just crazy. Thank you for that. So I’m just gonna shoot for the stars today and say,
let’s get 2,500 thumbs up on today’s video. Make sure you subscribe to me, I make new
videos every Friday, and like today, I’m gonna try to throw in an extra one every
here and there, and with all that being said, I’ll see you guys next week?!

  • Reply Katy March 20, 2019 at 9:04 pm

    Say you don’t feel to good the day before if possible

    Use a hot water bottle or a cup with hot water in it not a towel it saves time as you don’t have to dry your head so your parents can feel your head as quick as possible

    Make yourself vomit if you can (I shove a tooth brush down my throat a few times until it works). If you can’t vomit make fake sick

    Stay in bed and act very dull

    Fake cry ask for water and shake as you drink it

    Take medicine even though you don’t need it

    Remember don’t do it to often I only do this like three times a year ( also I have a science test tomorrow plus a big assignment so I’m praying my mum lets me stay off) wish me luck ??

    Another tip oversleep on purpose after saying how sick you felt last night. Your parents will feel bad for waking you and when the do say how sick you feel

    It always happens to me that I fake sick and my parents give me the day off but then realise that I'm not but then a different day I actually am sick and they don't believe me

  • Reply DeadBoiD March 20, 2019 at 11:26 pm

    [Thought I'd post my own little tips here too XD] Pro tip: Do this at night, this minimizes your chances of being caught.

    1. Take a REALLY cold shower/bath. Do this for as long as you can, this puts stress on the immune system and basically makes harder for it to fight bacteria. After the shower/bath DO NOT DRY OFF! This will keep the body cold and immune system will stay stressed. I recommend putting on wet clothing as well (not warm clothing, but shorts and sleeveless thin shirts), it makes sure you stay cold.

    2. Lick doorknobs around your house. Make sure you do this right after step 1. People touch doorknobs all the time and the chances that someone has bacteria on their hands or that someone didn't wash are high.

    3. Weaken your immune system. Stay up as late as you can or wait until the last minute to go the sleep. Ex: Say you normally get up at 6:00am to get ready for school, go to sleep at 5:00am or 4:00am. One, this just put more stress on the immune system. And second, you will naturally seem more tired and slow. If you want to stay up all night then try looking up how to pull an all nighter there are plenty of videos on it. Some other way to weaken the immune system are: Poor hygiene, and dehydration. Just in case you wanna hit those extra marks. DO NOT SLEEP UNDER WARM COVERS. Either sleep with thin covers or none at all, you cannot risk getting warm.


    Extra. Make your voice sound scratchy I don't know much about this but look up the channel Queries of the Interweb. He has a video on how to losing your voice as well as a whole playlist on getting 'sick'

    Now have fun getting sick 😉

    The hot cloth could be replaced with a non-refillable water bottle filled partly with water. Just make sure there's no air and the shape is relaxed so it can form to your forehead. That way, you can just hide the water bottle and have a ahem "fever."

    Here’s to all the people saying school isn’t helpful. Well, you’re right! If you’re going to be a youtuber when you grow up, or if you’ve already started, why do you need to know half the stuff you’re teaches?

    Ps: To stay home from school, i stay up really late, and make myself feel terrible, get a towel and put hot water on it, rub it on my head, make myself cry, and say “But I wanna go to school, but I can barely move 🙁 Sorry mum for being sick!” Then she’ll feel dead sorry for me and keep me off for the week, 🙂

    Just make yourself throw up with salt water!
    1. Get hot enough water that you can still drink it buts its hot (Make sure you can drink it in one go!)
    2. Put 2 or 3 spoons of salt in.
    3. Mix it and then drink.
    After 20 – 40 minutes you should throw up! I mean its a free 2 day skive for school!
    If you want to stay off for a week repeat this more than 2 times! Make sure your parents don't know!
