When was the last time you called in sick to work, just because you wanted a day off
In the last week and a half the couple I live with have each called in sick to their employers, basically for 2 completely different reasons.  The wife called in due to the fact her 9 monld oth child had an ear infection.  She was told by her Supervisor than even though she has PT that she would be fired if it happened again,(later withdrew this statement after she called h.r. department and told them what the man had told her.  Meanwhile her husband called in because he was hung over and simply needed some extra time to sleep it off and drink some more.  This happened on a Tuesday, he was told he also would have Wednesday off, work a 5 hour shift Thursday and then have all three days of the weekend off as well.

Been a long time.  I work whenever I can. 
Last time I did, I went fishing.   They noticed my impressive tan and sun kissed cheeks.   Busted.

I never call off unless I absolutely have to, went over a year without calling off at one point.  I picked other though because I wouldn't exactly say I "love" my job.

If I don't work, I don't get paid....so I NEVER "call in".  Only time in 22 years that I've missed is for detached retina surgery (4 times), cataract surgeries (twice) and once in 1995 (stomach virus) and 2003 (killer cold/flu-only one day)

I don't work but when I did, I called in sick so I could go drink beer & lay in the sun to the dr.  I worked at a farm supply store and the bosses brother was a crop duster.  D***@@ if he didn't fly over the river where we were fishing plus I got sun-burned....he told the boss and what could I say!  Thankfully, they thought it was hilarious so I didn't get in too much trouble lol

June 27th, 2001. It was a Monday I'll never forget. My son just finished his kindergarten year and it was his first day of summer vacation and I wanted to spend it with him. This happens to be the same exact day that I suffered my stroke, so I remember calling in sick and then BAM!

Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that's what Sick Days were for...Who wastes a perfectly good Sick Day on illness?

I'm the only person where I work who does what I do so it's not like I'm going to get out of something.  It will be waiting for me when I get back.  So it has to be at a time when I can spare not being around AND I have to be in the right mood at the time.  It happens, but it's a rare event. 

When I take vacation I have enough lead time where I can make some arrangements regarding my tasks.  I can do that if I opt to burn a sick day too, but it has to be planned in advance.

If I just want a day off, I can just call in and tell them I want a day off - no need to play sick. 
No I never call in, I love my job
