In the past I have just said, "I'm upgrading the payroll system right now" and whatever and whoever it was vaporises and disappears. I used that every day for a week once (of course one of my responsibilities is the payroll/HR system). Got loads of actual real work done. It's amazing how the possibility of no pay come payday puts things into perspective. Smile | :)
