A code word for taking a sickie from work when you're not really sick and spending the day chillaxing, shopping or hanging out with your co-conspirators. This code word is useful in work emails because using the phrase "I'm chucking a sickie" doesn't go down well with your managers should they read your work email.
The word originated in Melbourne, when two bored friends orchestrated taking a sickie on the same day and went to the Zoo to see the Meerkats. Knowing that their managers have the right to read their work emails, they had to devise a code word.
Hey Mate, Wednesdays sux, let's take a Meerkat day tomorrow, ride the Ferris Wheel and go to the Rooftop Bar on Swanson street.
