The Note is 15-20 minute read. This short story is a hilarious true story about a morning I was five hours late for work on a job I had just started as a 20 y/o kid. My best friend kept me out all night, and I must've turned the alram off. My brilliance thought if I got a doctor's note, everything would be fine. When I got to the hospital, though, ruht roht--see cover. Please rate after this read.
