Boss sees employee pulling a sickie from TV footage

Ask any seasoned festival goer, and they’ll tell you that scoring tickets to Glastonbury Festival is like winning the lottery. However, real life doesn’t go on hold just because you simply ‘have’ to go and see Stormzy on the hallowed grounds of Worthy Farm.

So, what do the several thousand punters who couldn’t get out of work over the festival weekend do when their boss says no to their holiday requests? The answer for the more reckless amongst them may well be to simply pull a sickie and hope that the numerous cameras constantly pointed on the crowd don’t foil their plan.
