  1. One of the most common methods of taking off from work nowadays is with fake doctor's notes. And since these fake notes have become so popular, they have become the center of many heated debates on whether or not it is ethical to use fake doctor's notes to get a few days off. In this article, I am going to discuss both sides of this argument. At the end of the day, it's up to you to decide which side of the fence you stand on. 

    First of all, let's understand and accept that all of us have told a lie at some point or the other in life. Some lies may be small and insignificant while others may be huge and make a big difference. But at the end of the day, it is human tendency to lie. That being said, fake doctor's notes are basically lies which we tell in order to give ourselves a break from our hectic schedule. Still, not everyone might feel the same way about fake doctor's notes although when the time comes to use them, everyone seems to turn a blind eye to legalities.
  2. Elements of the Free Doctor's Note
  3. One of the biggest problems in the United States is healthcare. And even though the worst seems to be past us, it will still be a very long time before people can actually afford healthcare on a regular basis. Even at that time, doctors will be flooded with patients and getting an appointment will be harder than ever. This is another reason why people prefer using fake doctor's notes. Sometimes, even people with legitimate health issues may resort to fake doctor's notes simply because they can't seem to get an appointment with their doctor. What would you do in such a situation?

    Now that you know why people resort to fake doctor's notes, it is important that you understand why they do so as well. A fake doctor's note can be spotted quite easily if not prepared correctly and the internet only provides a template for these notes. You will have to fill them in yourself. The first thing you need to mention on your fake note is the name and the contact details for the doctor you supposedly visited. The next piece of information which has to be mentioned is the date on which this supposed consultation took place. The third thing to be mentioned is your name and contact details. And lastly, you will have to describe the consultation and follow it up with medical advice and a recommended rest period if any. 

    So you see fake doctor's notes give you the power to decide how long you need to rest. But you should use them sparingly as the lesser you use them, the lower the chances of you getting caught.
