So my DOT physical expires this Friday, and me trying to do the right thing spent 3 hours of my Saturday looking for a place to get my physical. I tried 5 places, they were either closed, didnt have a qualified doctor on hand, or simply didnt do DOT physicals. As such, I knew I needed to call in one day this week to get my physical completed. So, I called in today, Monday, in order to get this job requirement finished. My reasoning is that Monday is usually the lightest day of the week... Not long after calling in, my sup called and then texted me saying he needed me today. Unfortunately for him, I am not glued to my cell phone and didnt see his missed call or text until 9am, already after start time. By this time he had texted me to tell me that my absence will be unexcused. I dont even know what this means to me in terms of discipline. I was given 2 sick days this year as Ive only got 22 months of seniority, and used both days. I have called in maybe 2 times, one for sickness and this for the DOT physical. What sort of BS should I be expecting when I go in tomorrow? I see a lot of posting about whether the supervisors see you as a good or bad employee, and I know that he likes me and is happy with my job performance.
