    I was late to work once because my husband had taken my car keys with him-on a two week deployment. But I hitched a ride with someone and just left my house unlocked. Nobody will get anything off me but practice anyway.

    I missed nursing school one time because I got up an hour early with a headache and took what I thought was two tylenol and went back to bed. I woke up at 1pm with the EMS at my door. Turned out I took two tylenol PMs, which I usually only take a half of. My work, school, husband, and neighbors had all been trying to reach me. My alarm was dead because it had rang for so long. My husband was out to sea and couldn't come check on me, so he called EMS when I hadn't been found by noon. Luckily I woke up before they busted my front door down.

    At work there is a male nurse who calls out just about every weekend he's scheduled to work with diarrhea. The thing is he's gay and has a lifepartner.

    This is my personal favorite and I can't wait for the time to come that I can use it:

    Had a CNA call in and say that she wouldn't be in that day. I asked her why and she replied "Because I quit"

    What's "gay and has a life partner" have to do with anything??? I'm gay, and never call in sick. Oh, neither does my life partner. But I take lots of sick calls from straight folks.

    I've seen this on a bumper sticker:

    Coworker was driving to work. A truck carrying debris from hurricane cleanup (post Charlie/Frances/Jeannie) stopped suddenly, dropping a substantial tree portion off the back, onto the road, where the coworker hit it, seriously damaging the vehicle.

    Do you know how much crap he caught from work/insurance/police, for calling in a "I got hit by a tree"?
