    Quote from RNDYN2CU
    How about "I can't possibly come in, I was out drinking until 3am and I am still drunk"
    Give that person points for honesty. At least they didn't try to work impaired. And give them a suspension w/o pay for being irresponsible and thoughtless towards their co-workers!

    Once (before I was a nurse), I had to call my employer b/c my car would not start. I asked them to come pick me up. Guess what. I was a waitress. It was Friday noc and the place was going to be packed. They picked me up b/c they needed me there. Has anyone ever tried going to pick up a co-worker who couldn't come in d/t "unreliable transportation". It just might work. Just a thought.

    i think there shouldn't really be an excuse for missing work; although there may be some genuine reasons like developing sudden sickness,accidents e.t.c missing work due to lacadaisical attitude or careless should be greeted with stern disciplinary measures.

    This one girl who calls in frequently called in AGAIN last week

    "My air conditioner isn't working that great so I didn't get good quality sleep today and I don't want to get fired for falling asleep at work!"

    P.S. She can fall asleep at the drop of a hat charting away!

    My sister called in once (she was a waitress) to go to a party and said her longtime friend had died. She used the name of her imaginary friend from childhood.

    We often enough had D&V (Diarrhoea and Vomitting) only because if you had it for two days or more, in England, you had to take 48 hours to make sure that you did not spread it. You can imagine, we used but not always. Taking one day was good but 4 days became a bit too much at times.
