Ferris Bueller’s Guide to Faking Out the Parents

“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you’ll miss it.” Ferris Bueller

It’s true. Whether you’re in high school or part of the work force, you just have to take a day off now and then to recharge. Ferris Bueller (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, 1986) was a master of leisure. He knew the key to faking out his parents. You could apply these principles to your spouse, significant other, or boss, so you too can stop and look around once in a while.

The Key


The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It’s a non-specific symptom. Ferris is a big believer in it.

Phony Fever


A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but you get a nervous mother, spouse, significant other or boss, you could wind up in a doctor’s office. That’s worse than school or work.
