Sounds like fun. But then I'd take an actual vacation day.
Maybe it's my toothache pain, or maybe it's the fact that I have to answer for why work isn't completed on schedule at work when I know employees are playing hooky, but I don't think it's acceptable to screw over the company that's paying you a wage. If they treat you badly, then get another job. If you truly need a stress break, then take a vacation day, or take stress-leave.
I had, I stress "had", an employee that called in sick for a week. About a month later, she let it slip out that they had a wonderful time at their cottage during the specific dates she was supposed to be sick.
