Primanti Bros. released ‘very real – and definitely not fake’ excuse generator to get out of work

PITTSBURGH — With St. Patrick’s Day and NCAA’s March Madness Tournament approaching, Primanti Bros. Restaurant and Bar released an excuse generator that will make personalized doctor’s notes for anyone looking to get out of work.

The aim of the generator is so you can get off of work from St. Patrick’s Day through the first weekend of March Madness.

All you have to do to get your doctor’s note for a “coleslawnoscopy” procedure is enter your first name into the system on the franchise’s website.

“It’s the best time of year to call off work and have a beer,” said Primanti Bros. chief bracketologist Adam Golomb. “Sometimes playing hooky is good for the soul.”

The excuse can be printed, emailed and shared online.

Primanti Bros. is offering a variety of specials for March Madness, including White Claw buckets, personal pitchers and a special on boneless wings.

Golomb did say, however, that if you use the excuse for real, “We’re totally not responsible for anything that comes of it at work.”
