Time to take the day off..?

If you search on Google on “work sickie excuses” about four or five results down you find a site that generates excuses for you. Like “I’ve developed an allergy to my desk” and “I’ve soiled myself” and “We’re trying for a baby and my partner is ovulating”…splendid stuff.

I wonder if some of the guys in Google’s UK PR team might want to use it? After all, reading the Daily Telegraph over the shoulder of some City boy on the tube and seeing this headline might make one feel a little queasy:

“Terrorists 'use Google maps to hit UK troops'”

I picked it up from this even more worrying headline on the Inquirer: “Google Earth is terrorists' tool of choice”…blimey.
