We've all come up with absurd lies to skip work, but this Photoshop wizard is next-level.
Twitter user @PapaBoardslide's tweet blew up after his simple photo-edit helped pull off a classic excuse. Yeah, you can call in and say you've got a flat tire...but with Photoshop skills like this, fantasy becomes reality.
On closer inspection, the edit isn't that convincing, with a tire-wrench weirdly suspended in air and the minivan's entire rim changing color — but it somehow worked!
A little Photoshop magic finessed this guy's tire flat and tricked his boss.
Despite some glaring mistakes, the mad man seems to have gotten away with his digital trickery. Unless his boss sees the tweet, which got over 100k likes in 24 hours.
People online reacted to the questionable Photoshop attempt.
A couple people shared similar stories of trickery.
Others didn't think the edit was such a great idea.
Meanwhile, @PapaBoardwalk celebrated his viral tweet.
He also clarified the picture was taken two years ago.
Others admitted they'd also do anything to skip work.
The lesson here: if you're going to do a bad Photoshop to avoid work, hope your boss is completely oblivious.
