If I call in sick, it's because I'm sick! In my experience, I've noticed that women bosses usually require an excuse, and men just accept that I'm not coming in and tell me to take it easy.

I've only ever called in sick when I really have been sick. We can only have so may days off sick before we get attendance warnings so I don't like to waste them. You never know when you might really need one.

I don't call in sick unless I really am sick.

I hate people that call in sick for any other reason, they are disloyal, more to their co-workers even then to the company.

I don't call in sick even when i am sick.

I don't call in sick, I just call in and say that I don't feel like coming in. But, I only do it on days that I know that others won't have to pick up the slack for me. I never do it when there's a major project going on or something's planned. So, when I'm away, all my coworkers have to do is let my phone ring into voicemail. :)

Well aren't you all goodie-two-shoes! If I have a male boss, I say I'm having "female problems" or something of that nature. I use vomiting if I have a female boss.

I call in sick if I have no better excuse for taking the day off. But its not like I do it constantly or anything. Probably once or twice a year. Its just more convenient at the time than getting into a long story about having company and wanting to spend time with them before they leave. I just tell them I sprained an ankle or Im vomiting like crazy.

"I'm sick"

I don't work so

I only did it once, but I called in saying I had a food allergy. Then I had a story planned if anyone asked for details. No one did, but my story would have been that I ate scallops for the first time and spent the nite on the bathroom floor becuase I was throwing up all nite.

I just say I'm taking a sick day...sometimes a "I don't feel well." They can't say sh*t.

I like to call in dead.

Vomiting. Nobody wants to be near you if they think you've been sick.

I am really sick.

I hardly fall sick, so when I pretend to be sick, they believe that I really am...and let me go by :D
