    They will tell you that you don't care about your job. Then, tell you to go back to work.

    Why would you do that?

    Make up some really good story, it's Peak, you'll probably get away with it.

    Share if you would, why?
    Why did you do this?
    I hope I do not sound short or sharp, but one would want to know this before
    offering possible sound advice.

    I am sorry. I am able to edit this.
    I am 22 year US Army, Umpteen years UPS now.
    I do not how to ask why any easier in this point of my life.
    As a 50 plus year old that has been at work when I was supposed to be there
    for over the last 40 years.

    First time, write up. Second time, suspension. Third time termination.

    At least that's how it works here

    Only if it's 3 days in a row, in the Atlantic Area. 3 no-call, no-shows in a row is interpreted as an employee voluntarily quitting.

    We have people with dozens of no-calls throughout the year. It's one of the few things I won't defend someone on as a steward (barring extraordinary circumstances)

    It should be an automatic warning letter but you might be able to get away with a verbal if you call in now.

    Are you seasonal or a permanent pt employee. They probably are not going to do anything its peak. If your a seasonal employee don't plan on working past Dec 24. If your a permanent pt employee everything will depend on if you have been in trouble before or not.
