I got blown in by a fellow employee on day I called in sick. She marched right in and told the big boss (not her supervisor, or mine, but the head honcho of the whole place) that she had seen me "driving around town" when I was supposed to be ill. Unfortunately for her I was driving myself to the hospital at the time, which my timed admission papers and doctor's note clearly showed.Don't know what on earth she thought she was going to gain by it. She just ended up looking stupid.
This is the topper of them all. I had an employee call in and said he could not come to work because someone stolen his shoes. This poor guy was in love with a junkie and was selling everything she could get her hands on. The shoes were new so she returned them to the store to get the money. In time he did get rite of her.
Before retiring the company that employeed me gave us "3" personal days off to use for personal business, etc.; however my immediate supervisor, being the chicken s - - t s.o.b. that he was, always got up set when anyone called in to take one of their personal days.
...Tell the boss you got anal glaucoma..( I can't see my azz coming in today)
The best call off sick excuse is diarrhea!!! The boss cant touch that one!!! you can drive by all day!!!
once had an employee's wife call him off because they were up all night because his dog had an emergency c-section.
Typical AOL lib fare....
Excuse the double post, must have been a glitch.
Give employees more time off and BOOM what do ya know..problem solved!!! it's as simple as that. The U.S. is the most overworked nation in the world!More work leads to stress and a lower quality of life. Not having time to unwind, spend time with your loved ones, take care of your home, spend time with friends, enjoy your hobbies etc. it makes sense when ya think about it.The bottom line here is we work entirely WAY WAY too much in this country PERIOD. too much work and not enough play makes jack a dull boy.
One of the girls at my job called into work saying she couldn't find her phone or her keys, and within a minute texted another girl that worked there saying she had to use the payphone to call work.First, where are all those glorious payphones now days, and second, since when did they start texting?
