I did not call in yesterday to make sure our office was closed when every other business, government office and school in the state was shut down from the snow and ice. I would have, but I was sick and fell asleep and I didn’t wake up until noon. Today, I called in sick and found out that our office did not close yesterday, so I was AWOL. I could not reach my boss so I just left a message. Now I have to go back tomorrow and hope he is not pissed at me for not calling on Tuesday and not going in today. I was sick, but there is a good chance he won’t believe me.
I get sick a lot, and I hate having to take off from work. I always feel like my bosses think I’m faking, even though I am not. If I were, I would come up with a much better story than “I was sick.” I never even got dressed today, did not set foot outside (always a good choice when I don’t get dressed) and barely moved from in front of my computer all day. Yesterday I slept almost all day, and I should have slept more today. In fact, that’s what I am going to go do now.
