Malingerer

Malingerer

<mah-ling-ger-ruh>

loafer; dodger; shirker;

someone who slacks off from work - often by lying about being sick.

The man is a malingerer. He is out sick but I saw him at the gym.

Memory trick:
malingerer reminds of malign or lie.
linger reminds of something constant and lasting.
a lie that lasts.

At work:
I think she is a malingerer. We need to ask for a note from the doctor.
