I am always on Time and Never sick!!!!
I don't punch a clock and work from home, so I really can't say.
Im always on time these days....back in the day when I worked for the pops I would show up VERY late sick,,,but it was legit since I was half drunk and hungover every single day.....
the term "late sick," is fucking genius!
I was late for work a couple of days ago. I last called in sick about 7 years ago.
It's not that I love my job, it's only because I have nothing else to do.
Vos thinks Late/Sick is a type of corrective eye surgery.
I see what you did there. :upp:
Since I died, I haven't had to work, so being late hasn't been a problem.
ummmm, does a scheduled out count? because if i think about it i cant remember any time in the last couple years that ive taken off un expectedly actually i think it was about 8years ago when i threw out my back and had to go to the hospital. oh wait i take that back over the summer i fell in my yard and sprained my ankle i had to take a day off to go to the doctors. thats the only day off since my ball job 4years ago
i'm usually early, and never sick. i will work when I'm sick, and use personal days when i want to go golfing.
i'm never late but i call in more often than i should....
oh and im late every day, mainly because it pisses off my boss, but also because i have to wait for my wife to come home from work.
my periods are pretty regular.
never late. and i work even when im sick
Four kids at home.....Going to work is a day off
I'm very, very often late.
I use to be early to everything and would have too much time on my hand. So now I take my sweet ass time, but seem to be late on a bunch of shit.
And sick, I always have the sniffles or a stuffy head. Something is always wrong. I have a partial cold 200 days out of the year.
5 sick days in the last 20 years. so about once every 4 years.
'cept for that time a few months ago. I thought we were going to have to break out the coat hanger.
Always early, never late. But, if im sick i have no problem taking off work and getting paid for it. Thatshat PTO is for.
Late a few times when I commuted from central to Norf Jersey and could not figure out the commute times...Sick a few times...but only when I really felt like death warmed over and had a high fever.... which was about a week at once.
I work for the MTA, if you are late, you lose a days pay. In 16 years never late. I do call in sick about 3/4 times a year, but am never sick when I call in. Usually it is for an event (wedding, concert, etc....) or a Met/Jet game I have tickets to. I called in Thursday to go to Van Halen, and had not called in since the 2006 NLCS.
I was late sick today, and yesterday.
in fact I am late almost every day. Stupid traffic. My boss has to know cause w hen I'm early or on time I stop by his office on the way in to bullshit for a few minutes, when I'm late I come in through the back door and go straight to my desk.
We get one day a month sick time and are allowed to roll them over year to year. Since we can use 1200 hours of sick time to pay down the cost of our medical insurance when we retire, I try to not use the time unless I'm really sick, like with the flu or something. The rest of the time if I'm late, I use my annual time. I get 2 days a month since I'm in the court system 18 years. Again we're allowed to roll it over year to year. Civil servants may get paid crappily but the benefits are fairly decent.
i used to be the never sick guy but then realized it doesn't get you ahead at all. so now i make sure to use all my sick days. i asked him if he would pay me for any unused sick days at the end of the year and he said no. since then i have always used them all.
whenever I can't concentrate on work, or if I gotta do something that day, I'll use my sicktime.
