    I will nver forget the one night I tried to call out sick. I have never called out before and had like 155 hr of PTO. I call the night supervisor and tell her I need to call out I am not feeling well. She states " I dont believe you can do that". I was like excuse me?? I am doing it. Have a nice day and hung the phone up. LOL
