    This thread is for when you call off. It's for letting people know they aren't alone when they want to call off and when they see that other people do it they will have the courage to do it too. Post in this thread whenever you call off.
    I called off twice this week (yesterday and today)

    Were you sick? If you are sick, or have a legitimate reason to not attend work, why would you need “courage” to call out?

    I called out today, legit reason. No courage necessary, I don't need your moral support, and I dont give a _____ if any of you approve. Dumb thread.

    Not sick necessarily, just for when you don't really feel like it.
    Some countries call it mental wellness days.

    I called off two weeks ago because it was 40 degrees and rain all day. Sometimes you just have to do it.

    Call ins have been epidemic in my building this winter. Mostly young guys who don't want to work in the cold and icy roads. (I don't blame them.) Then they give the work to the air drivers to deliver. I am almost at $14k so far this year.

    You don't sound like a pleasant person. They were probably glad you weren't there.

    Why don’t you just quit and make everyone’s life easier?

    Last time I called off it was because I needed the day off. The reason I needed the day off is irrelevant.

    That’s not doing anyone any good when you’re NOT there.

    If they don't want me to not be there maybe they should help me more when I'm there.
