    Default Best excuse to use for working from home

    Any ideas? I am bored senseless.

    Yep.

    Or 'I'll not be on site tomorrow, is there anything particularly urgent you need delegating?".

    Just get a contract where the client expects you to be working from home the majority of the time.

    Anyway there are loads of deliveries of bulky furniture you can have i.e. sofas, wardrobes, fridges, washing machines, freezers, tumble dryers.....

    "I'm tired of the commute and am looking for something closer to home. "

    Too blunt....perhaps. But then my client was desperate.
