Attempting to get permission to leave work early
on any given day for a reason that is questionable in its legitimacy, or perhaps
outright laughable. Often, the reason given will employ minor ailments such as getting "fuzz in one's eye" or "having a toothache". It is also preceded by a minimum of thirty minutes in which the individual must
constantly groan, complain loudly
to an unspecified and unsympathetic audience, close their eyes, grimace and ultimately create a spectacle which only further highlights the ludicrous nature
of the stated discomfort.
Example 1: Did you hear that Vincent tried to leave work early today? He told
Brian that his nose was too stuffed up and it was keeping him from hitting
his quota. Brian knew he was just pulling
a Kevin though and made
him tough it out.
Example 2: Man, I was so hungover today that I decided on pulling
a Kevin halfway through the day! Told
them I felt sick and was going straight to the doctor, but really I just went home to get drunk again
and watch Adventure Time
in my boxers.
