If you want to get out of going to work this badly, just call in sick, man.

There's a 32-year-old guy named Brian Anderson from Dundee, Florida. And on Tuesday morning, he called the cops to report an armed robbery.

He said two guys jumped out of a car and stole his money, necklace, and phone at gunpoint and then drove off.

But when the cops investigated, they realized he'd made it all up, and he admitted the reason was, he didn't want to go to his 11:00 A.M. shift at Hardee's.

He was arrested for misuse of 911 and making a false report.

But on the bright side, he went to jail, which means he DID get out of work.
