Do you feel guilty when you call in sick for work even if you ARE sick?

Yeah, I always feel bad and worry if they think I'm a slacker

Yes, but it applies to school.

No, because if I call in sick it means I'm sick. Except for the time my Mom wanted me to play hooky so we could take a drive and hang out.

Gosh, I sure do. I think it's just the fact of calling in, cause I don't feel bad when I miss school. I get this pit in my stomach while I'm talking to my boss, then afterwards, I don't feel so guilty.

I feel guilty when I stay home from school. I don't know why.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 10/31/03 - 6:38:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeh! and even though they say its okay, it seems like they are mad or something
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 11/10/03 - 8:05:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
kind of...because if i call out of work that actually does make more work for the other people...but after i think about it for a few minutes i dont care anymore
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 11/10/03 - 8:26:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I worry they'll think I'm lying.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 11/10/03 - 8:57:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
my school makes me call in when im sick, so i have to do it. and i never feel guilty.

Well, I just called in sick and, today, I don't feel so guilty...perhaps it's because I'm REALLY beginning to hate my job...

This happened to me today - despite the fact that I was genuinely sick, and that this is only the fifth time within an 8.5-year period that I've taken sick leave.

I partly felt bad because an important series of meetings was on today, but a colleague was able to fill in for me.

I have to say, though - I'm glad I did stay home and rest, because I feel a hundred times better.

No. I don't call in sick for work. I don't get sick.

Yeah, I guess that makes me a wuss. Funny how it seems no one else has this problem.
