    I have a rep of always being at work and not using my sick days. i think I've used 3 sick days in 8 years.

    Well, I'm sick of that and I don't want to get paid out anymore. I want to use all my days.

    I just feel guilty calling out when I'm not sick.

    Anyone else like that?

    In my center we are allowed to use sick and personal days interchangeably.

    Nice guys really do finish last here. Your not appreciated but rather just being taken advantage of. Your body will thank you for the needed rest.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Guilty? Lol I can't remember the last time I called off when I was actually sick.

    Granted if your local resets days January first....I'm not sure I'd wanna burn a day so soon in the year, but that's your biz.

    We had a driver in our panel area canned after "calling in sick" and his name appearing in a local paper for a golf tournament in our area several years ago. Termination for dishonesty was upheld.

    Always call in and say, "I'm using a sick day."

    Just an FYI.

    Did I ever feel guilty about burning a day of sick time? Never. Called in sick one time from a casino parking lot. lol. The only time I felt bad is if I had days left over at the end of the year that I didn't take.

    You have no one to blame but yourself, for that screw-up. LOL

    When they ask if we want to sell vacation weeks, I always ask:

    "How many can I buy?"

    Called in sick last day before vacation started from an airport. You could hear the planes in the background noise. They somehow got wind that I left that day on a plane. They actually sent someone from LP to the airport to try and find out my plane schedule. Tickets were in another name so they didn't have much luck. Had a great 3 week vacation. Came back home, they had been by my house and left all kind of notes on my door to contact them. Went into work on Monday, not a word was said to me. I consider sick days as mental health days.

    Congrats on attempting to make another thread all about you.


    That isn't always bad unless you didn't find out until reporting to work.
