look up any word, like bukkake:
A problem affecting people with genuine illness when their colleagues don't believe that they are actually ill.

Most often attributed to previous Disco Days being taken (as in the boy who cried wolf).

Results in frustration for the sick person.

Originated in Accountancy Practices in Bristol.
Dave had a stinking cold but all his colleagues believed he was taking a Disco Day.
