Company Offers 'Excuse' Service For U.S. Employees, Students
(AHN) -- A company has launched a excused absence service for U.S. employees and students.

The Excused Absence Network services all your excuse letter needs for just $25 per excuse note, which appears to come from professional doctor or hospital. They also offer fake jury summons and an authentic-looking funeral service program with poems and pallbearers.

The legitimacy of products they offered are being questioned by some people whether it is legal or ethical. But the company owner says that they are just helping people who needed an excuse, which the people would have done anyway.

Co-founder of the Internet-based company Vision Matters, which sells notes to Excused Absence Network John Liddell said, "Millions of Americans work dead-end jobs, and sometimes they just need a day off. People are going to lie anyway. How many people go visit their doctors every day when they're not sick because they just need a note?"

The procedure in getting the company's service is very simple. Prospective customers will receive templates and they can input the name and address of the local doctor or hospital. Whereas those who prefer jury duty, clients can input their county courthouse information on the form.
