So how was your Memorial Day weekend? Maybe it was awesome, maybe a little too awesome. Need an extra day? Well #4 on this list can help.

5) When you're at the dentist or doctor waiting room are you looking for something to do to kill some time? Well then, take a photo of the bar code, name and address of the magazine on the table.

You'll have the details you need to log in to read the online version of the magazine.....I'm told this works most of the time.

4) If you're calling in a fake sick day, say your doctor is a "she."  That little detail makes it seem more legitimate.  Also call in on a Tuesday....I mean really, who takes off on a Tuesday for no good reason.

3) When you go out announce, "I'm not drinking tonight." It's a great way to make sure other people will buy you drinks to try to persuade you to start drinking with them. Unless you're a cute woman, then just put on a nice outfit and show up.

2) Buy a cheap ticket to a sporting event or concert. Then about an hour before it starts, go to StubHub and see which good seats are still unsold. Then head to those seats and sit in them.

1) When you call a customer service line, choose SPANISH as your language. Most of those call centers are in the U.S. and the waits are shorter.

If you're saying, "But I don't speak Spanish." no problem. Most of the reps can also speak English, even better than someone in India.
