Hey, So this past year has been a hard one. Probably the hardest year I've ever had. Family emergencies, abundance of illnesses, car trouble, you name it and it happened this last year. Anyway, this last month I got nailed with a horrible sinus infection. I'm talking the kind where you can't even stand without getting dizzy and having a weird out of body sensation. Anyway, I called in numerous times that week because I didn't want to injure myself on the job (due to being light headed) and I wanted to get healthy as quick as possible. When I returned the FT Sup talked to me and said I needed to do short term disability if something like that happens. I told him I was unaware and asked him what I should have done. He replied, "Hopefully it doesn't happen again." The night went on and the PT Sup came up to me and made a joke stating, "You know we can still fire you for those call ins." Well, yesterday I was doing dishes and sliced my hand pretty good. I called in because I want to let it heal and, as I'm sure you all know, the hub isn't exactly sanitary. Well, no one answered the call in line so I left a message. I guess my question is can I get fired for calling in? I had doctors notes for anything over a couple of days. It just freaks me out cause what the PT Sup was saying to me. I've been working for the company for over a year and I am one of the top 3, if not their number 1 bagger in small sort. I will admit to an excessive amount of call in's, but like I said, this has been the worst year yet... And I was homeless living under a bridge in the North Dakota winter... So it's bad.
