bearing in mind its the worst job ever and getting sacked isnt a concern
is an essential part of working life. No guilt should be felt.
someone who works for you. In which case it's wholly unacceptable.
I took too many last year and got in trouble, only one so far this year (but I've been very tempted to take more)
There's a slighty ping of guilt after calling in...but then it's gone!
Another way i beat the system; Sneak into the office and, on the time sheets for the next week, stroke out any hours i don't want to work, and WAYHEY! I can't do it too often though, or they'd catch on.
no guilt there
cause they don't
such a responsible crowd here
in this den of hellish morals.
I'll be alone in heaven, you cunts.
Pulling a sickie if your hangover's too bad for you to go in - not really acceptable, but understandable. If you don't do it too often.
Pulling a sickie because you can't be arsed to go in - Grow up.
of how much sickies cost business in Britain, and the ways corporations are discussing to stop them. It made me want to hit someone.
The people taking sickies, or the people trying to stop them?
What an utterly harmless part of every day life to attack. Everyone needs a break every once in a while. I suspect preventing people pulling sickies would cause more problems than the amount of money you'd save would be worth.
The thing is, figures like "sickies cost businesses £Xmillion a year" are better expressed as "without sickies, business owners claim their profits would be up by £Xmillion a year" - although it's debatable whether an unhappy, unmotivated lackadaisickal workforce would really be any more productive than a skiving one. Universal flexitime's what we need.
The only day off I've taken "as a sickie" I managed to convince my (then) boss that I wasn't rota'ed to work anyway. It was Boxing Day one year.
I work 5-6 days a week for a 'legitimate' company I realised that I am classed as part-time staff, therefore I have no rights to a fucking sick day. This country sucks current piles.
But then I love my job. Arf.
I have 'food poisoning'. And my I will begin to weave my web of deceit while at work this evening when I will complain of having a nasty stomach ache
MOOO HOO HA HA HAAAAA
I know your kind. Calling up the boss telling him details of your 'violent diorrea'. Embarrasing the boss with tale's of undigested sweetcorn. You people make me sick.
It's only a part time job, which I'm leaving in the summer. I have a silly amount of uni work to get done and I would also have had to leave early to get to London to see Battles
in mine... 65, rolo tomassi, josh t pearson and mirimar disaster is too good a bill to pass up
1 day off-skiving
2 days off-must be ill.
so its shit if you're in a job that doesn't pay sick days!
