    On the radio... Were you sick the last time you called in sick?
    If not, what did you do?



    Last time I called in sick, I was sick. I did call in before that to go to my sons school event.

    Last time I called into work... Actually I didn't call in personally - my doctor called in for me (I was in the ICU and totally out of it).

    Before that I called in because my grandfather was living his last hours (followed by a week's bereavement leave)...

    Before that it was because my mom had broken her hip, was on bed rest, and had nobody else available to look after her...

    Man... I'm a fucking ray of sunshine when it comes to "Why I called into work" stories. :oops:

    (But it goes to show that - no matter how much I hate my job - I show up unless there is death/serious injury to myself or family.)

    I've not missed a day in too many years to remember. I'm self employed and can't imagine letting my wife and kids down just because I don't feel good. Also, I feel I'm very perceptive when it comes to talking with people. If I tried calling myself to claim I was sick, I have to think I would be able to sense whether or not I was lying just by the tone in my voice. ;)

    When I fell and dislocated my shoulder. That was 10 weeks ago, I haven't worked since.

    This week and I am genuinely sick with tonsillitis. I'm not one to call in sick unless I really am. Not fair on my workmates as they have to "pick up the slack".

    The last time I called in sick, I was very sick, sadly, it just meant I had to work twice as hard the next day.

    For me, it was 3 years ago. I called in sick, but I really wasn't. I just didn't feel like going that day. Plus I already had the job I have now. The following Monday I gave my 2 week notice.

    I just came back from a four week leave. I had to call in FMLA daily. It sucked, but so does depression.
