  Today, I told my mum that the reason I hadn't contacted her for 3 days was that my internet was broken, when in reality I'd gone off for a dirty weekend with the guy I'm having sex with. I forgot my older sister worked for my internet provider. FML

I used to work ISP support. Idk what it's like across the pond, but here, it's illegal and could get you terminated. I hope thats the same for you OP, because while I wouldnt want your sister fired, I wouldnt want her snopping either.

Alright lets be pedantic, OP could have ALSO just thought "Hey, Internets out!" and not given a shit. ISP's also don't take blame if your router/modem are different and your modem/router isn't theirs and isn't working properly. OP could say her power kept going in and out. OP could say the surge protector she used died and she had to buy a new one. Take a pick! :)

I work for the cable company too! Sch'uuuurrrre it went out.

Need me to write a note to all your friends and family vouching for the outage? I've gotten that request before!

Mom: "Why haven't I heard from you in 3 days?"
OP: "Uh, my internet went down?"
Sister: "No it didn't. You forget, I work for your internet provider."
OP: "Damn... alright, fine... I had the weekend off so I could do dirty things with my fuck buddy..."
Mom and Sister: "You didn't need to share that much!"
Mom: "But I do hope you remembered to use condoms."
OP: "Uh, my internet went down?"

Why do you need to contact your mother? Even if theyre like my parents who have to text or call me everyday in fear im dead, i tell them “no i didnt respond to you because im an adult and i didnt want to”

It's 3 days and apparently you're an adult who doesn't live with the parents anymore so why do you need to provide an explanation? "I had other things to do. Now stop being so needy, mom."

If not contacting them for that long is not typical, why not just tell them you’ll be busy for a few days with a project and will hit them up later. Or something similar.
