Being a student is difficult.You have to be in school every week, whether you like it or not.Whether you want to avoid running the mile in gym class, or you just want a break from the monotony, some days you need to stay home.You have to convince your mom and dad that you want to go to school.faking a sickness will give them a reason not to debate, if they aren’t the type to empathise with your personal reasons for staying at home.
Step 1: There was a slight stomachache the night before.
You need to start laying the groundwork the evening before your sick day so that your parents are not caught off-guard the next morning.The illness illusion will be more convincing if you start talking about it at night.Don’t get too carried away.They will probably suspect something if you dramatically wailing the night before.Just say a few words about nausea and you’re good to go.
Step 2: Don’t eat dinner.
You probably don’t have much of an appetite when your stomach is upset.Pretend you aren’t hungry to make your sickness convincing.You will be spending the night hungry and uncomfortable if you don’t plan ahead.You can eat food in your bedroom if you sneak it in.Don’t act like you’re trying to eat when your family sits down for dinner.Push your food around your plate and say that you are too sick to eat much.
Step 3: You should go to bed early.
You want to get into bed as soon as you can if you tell your parents you don’t feel well.This is a convincing way to show your parents that you are sick, but they won’t be able to attribute any of your symptoms to a lack of sleep.If you are not tired, go to bed.You can text your friends, play on your cell phone, or grab a book.
Step 4: Mentioning the event will make you feel worse.
Don’t complain to your parents about the physical fitness test in the gym the next day.If they know that you aren’t looking forward to school the next day, act as if everything is normal.
Step 5: If your parents know about it, act like you’re not worried.
If they know you have a big test the next day, say something like, “I was pretty nervous for it, but I think I’m going to do well.”If it’s something other than a test, tell them that you’re prepared and don’t worry about it.Your parents are less likely to suspect that you’re trying to get out of it if you don’t dread it.If you are planning on faking illness to get out of an exam or homework assignment, be careful.If you don’t study or homework because you think you’ll get to stay home, you will be in big trouble with your parents.Just in case, study or complete the assignment.It’s just a bonus if you end up faking sick and getting the extra day to avoid the test or assignment.
Step 6: Whiten your face with baby powder.
Your face is often discolored when you suffer from a stomach sickness.A small dusting of baby powder will make you look ill.To make sure you look washed out, lightly pat some of the powder onto your skin.If you have large makeup brushes, you can use a bit of power to apply it evenly to your face.You can use a tissue to rub over your skin if you don’t have a brush.If you can avoid it, try not to get too close to your parents after brushing your face with baby powder.You don’t want them to notice the scent, because it is unmistakable.
Step 7: Remove your hair.
Take care of your bedhead, and exaggerate the tangles.You toss and turn when you are sick.Your parents will think you had a restless night of sleep if you have messy hair.The sicker you are, the rougher you look.The overall image of sickness will be helped by ugly hair.
Step 8: If you want to cover your face with a damp towel, Rub some lotion on it.
The combination of the towel and lotion will make your skin clammy.You don’t want to look slimy when you have a stomach bug.It’s important to give your skin that unpleasant moist that comes with many sicknesses.
Step 9: You should keep your face somber.
You probably don’t smile much when you’re sick.Even if your sibling says something funny on TV, make sure you keep your facial expression calm.You can’t let a smile or laugh give you away because you’re supposed to be miserable.
Step 10: Make sure your body language is not offensive.
If you are in pain, hold your stomach and hunch your back.Curl up into a ball when you lay down.Do it slowly, as if you are weak.It is easy to tell someone you are sick, but you need to make sure your body language tells them.You might find yourself nodding off to sleep whenever you’ve been sitting or laying down for a long time.Pretend to be asleep when your parents pop their heads in to check on you.
Step 11: Tell us about your symptoms.
If you want to elaborate on what is wrong, say you have a stomachache.Tell your parents if you feel unwell.Decide if your fake illness consists of a dull pain or a fleeting spell.The more specific you are, the more realistic your illness will be.Don’t change what hurts when you tell your parents.When they ask what’s wrong, be consistent.
Step 12: Show your interest in going to school.
Say something like, “I know I should stay home, but I really want to be at school.”Your parents will be less likely to suspect you are faking it if they think you don’t want to stay home.You can even go the extra mile and get dressed for school.
Step 13: If your parents don’t believe you, stay calm.
Your parents will probably suspect that you’re desperate to stay home if you start getting worked up.Don’t throw a temper tantrum.Start slowly as you get ready for school.The more pathetic and sickly you act, the better!Hopefully they will pity you and see you struggling.Ask them if you can stay home if they don’t let you.You don’t think you can make it through the school day if you look them in the eye.Pull on their heartstrings.
Step 14: If your parents send you to school, you should head to the school nurse.
Wait at least an hour before you go to the nurse’s office.If you wait a bit, your parents will know that you tried to go to school but couldn’t.If you want to use the same techniques on your teacher and nurse as your parents did, make sure you use them.As you speak to both your teacher and the nurse, hold your hand to your mouth and make sure you’re not going to puke.No one wants to deal with a student who is vomiting.Better safe than sorry!You will pay a second visit to the nurse if the school nurse sends you back to class.You will be sent home for good if you do that.It’s a good idea to go to the bathroom a lot.
Step 15: You should sneak your food.
If you have a stomach bug, don’t eat a big bowl of cereals or a bag of chips in front of your parents.Take a few bites and then refuse the rest.Tell them you have no appetite because you are too nauseated.If your parents leave you alone for the day, make sure to discard any wrappers, dishes, or other evidence of eating.If your parents stay home with you, you should bring some snacks to your bedroom.You can eat them throughout the day.
Step 16: Pretend to vomit in the bathroom.
If you are confident in your acting skills, you can make vomiting noises in the bathroom while pouring a glass of water into the toilet.Don’t risk it if you’re not sure you can pull it off.If you want to complain of other gastrointestinal issues, spend a long time in the bathroom.If you want to make your parents think you’re faking it, you can spray some air freshener around the bathroom before you walk out.
Step 17: Allow your parents to pick you up from the doctor’s office.
Only do this if they suggest it.Your parents will be suspicious of your illness if you insist that you don’t need to see a doctor.Tell your doctor the same symptoms you told your parents.Don’t say anything that would alarm the doctor.Tell them that when you sit up or walk around, you feel sick, or that you’re exhausted and have body aches.The doctor will most likely send you home with an order to rest if you get stomach bugs.No one can prove that you don’t feel sick, even if your doctor believes you are faking it.There is no test to determine if someone is upset.
Step 18: Stay in bed.
If one of your parents is staying with you, this step is crucial.You need to keep acting sick even though they have allowed you to stay home.Don’t head out to the driveway to play a video game or shoot hoops.Play a game, read a book, watch a show, or take a nap.Stick to low-energy “sick day” activities.Don’t start acting healthy if you’ve missed the whole day and it’s past school hours.If your parents know you faked being sick, they won’t trust you in the future.
