    i called in sick today, i felt like hell yesterday i came home from work and selpt all day, 11hrs total, then this morning i wasnt feeling much better, so i called in sick.... in my whole life ive called in like 3 times.... i kinda feel bad about it. even though i feel sick i feel like im being a pansy by staying home. ive worked outside in the raid in january with pneumonia before, im not the type that calls in sick for anything.

    i'm not one to call in often or miss school either. the people you work with probably realize that you are a reliable person and understand that the few times you need the day off, you really need the rest.

    just relax, keep the good stuff goin into your body.

    It's probably better for them that you get back to 100% fast which means staying home. That plus you will only make eeveryone else sick. i hate when that happens.

    When I call in, I always hear the same thing. "You don't sound sick." so I says, "Well I'm doin' my sister, is that sick enough for ya!":eek: :haha: :haha:

    ive only called in sick twice, once when i was sick, and the last time, the guys at work talked me into it because 3 out of 7 in our area were gonna be gone (the 3 guys that worked, did it to us a few weeks before and it was payback time, lol) not to mention the plant was closing and every one was being layed off the next friday, also my gf at the time said i should so i can go to the city with her. i felt guilty about that one, expecially when they called my up to bitch me out:haha: :haha: :haha:

    Called in Sick today. I probably could've gone in, but I was already an hour late, had a nasty headache, and have to drive up to denver to file divorce papers.

    About time too, I was getting ready to have her served, but didn't have the extra $150.

    I feel much the same about calling in, but over the years I've learned to take better care of myself and if I'm really feeling bad I call in. prob. average about 2 days a year.
    Last time I kept going when i should'nt have was about 5 years ago working a phyiscally demanding job. I felt like crap but kept working for two weeks and ended up with pnemonia, Doc. was pissed and I missed 4 days.
