Ever called in sick?
 
Who here has called in sick when they weren't really sick? I won't say that I never have, but certainly it's been the exception rather than the rule, and at my current job I can honestly say that it hasn't happened in the 9 years I've been there. Mrs. Morph doesn't share my ideology, and frequently tries to persuade me to "take the day off". She can be (ahem) very persuasive and tonight the powers that be have royally pissed me off. The problem is that calling in sick doesn't hurt them, but my blameless coworkers, who will have to carry my load. I'm interested in hearing other experiences and perspectives.

I'm a terrible liar so I don't even try. I know, I know, Goody Two Shoes is my real name!:rolleyes:

Just will not work. The boss would fire me in a heart beat. :nono::nono: nope no dead beats at my office.

Morpheus 11-15-2007 07:43 AM

yeah well, guess who's on his way to work this morning???

Isaac-Saxxon 11-15-2007 08:17 AM

Work ? Work ? that is a four letter word. I do not understand how someone could call in sick or show up late and feel like they should be paid for work not rendered. Hope you all have a great day at work. :D No dead beats on the payroll :nono:

Anal Glaucoma only afflicts employees that would be emp for short. Then again if your not the lead dog the scenery never changes all you can see is the arse hole in front of you :cool:

I have never called in sick, but then again, I've been self employed for 24 years... I guess I put in my application to the real world and they accepted! :duck:
