    So I work at a hub in lower California. I've been working here about 2 months now as a preloader. I do my job pretty well and am keeping up these days, but tomorrow I have no way of getting to work. My car is broken down and the only two people in the area who could possibly give me a ride are out of town. I have used a sick day once before with no issue, which was a month ago. Would using my 2nd (and last sick day), tomorrow be an issue?

    My contract stated I have 2 sick days/ "floaters"(???) at the start and then 2 sick days per year that can be rolled over, and all other benifits besides tuition start after a year. That and my sups and full time sups are pretty lax as long as you call in an hour before and its not a common occurrence from what I'm told

    Always volunteer a co-workers ride home and to work if they are in a bind. When your car breaks down and in the shop. Call them up. They will always be happy to drive you. It's a brotherhood thing. If you are out of the way, stop off at a convenience store buy them some gas or smokes or snacks. They will remember your gratitude. Don't get used by moochers that never give you anything for a ride because they "work" with you. They don't have a car or license because they don't pay off their court fines, advise them to find another free ride.
