When is the last time you missed a day of work?
What was the reason (illness, family emergency, sick kids, etc.)?

    about 2 weeks ago...woke up beside a beautiful woman. I decided my day would be better spent in bed wiht her...than at my desk, wishing I was having sex.

    I've missed a lot of partial days in the last month or so from dealing with house buying stuff. The last full day I missed was March 20th, because I was at the hospital until 1am the night before with my sister having her first baby. I spent the day sleeping in, taking my brother back to college and visiting with my new nephew.

    I took last Monday off just because I felt like it.

    I used a legitimate sick day on March 4th. I had a bad reaction to a tetanus shot and couldn't get out of bed all day.

    I missed last week. I honestly didn't know I went in. I found out the next day when I called to get the schedule that I had completley missed a shift. Ooops. Gotta love the lax of retail, though.

    February 21st (http://lostinaworldawhirl.blogspot.com/2006_02_01_lostinaworldawhirl_archive.html)

    Work sent me home sick on Monday because they had extra people; when I didn't come in on Tuesday because I still had the runs they called it unexcused because I didn't go to the Dr. and get a note. I've now had 5 of those in 27.5 years...

    I'll be calling off "sick" this coming Tuesday. Truth is, I'm going to be at an all-day interview/trial run with a potential new employer. More $$$, a more secure future, etc...
    The last time I called off was 2 months ago-- I was legitimately ill with that nasty stomach virus, and missed 2 days.

    Last time I missed work was because I was struggling with major anxiety. Instead of going to work I just ended up sleeping ... It really wasn't much fun.

    I had food poisoning and couldn't leave the bathroom floor for 24 hours...disgusting but true...

    I missed a half day a couple weeks back. Didn't get a good night's sleep the night before, could tell that I wasn't going to be good for anything, and suddenly realized that once my class was over, everything else could wait a day.

    I went home and slept for about three hours. Felt so great.

    I'm home this morning waiting for the oven repair man. Oh joy! But I'm going to paint my bathroom while I wait, so it's not wasted time. Besides, I'll take any time away from work that I can!

    This past Friday. I stayed up late having sex and when my daughter woke up with stomach issues I decided to call in "kid sick".

    I missed work March 9&10 to take my step son camping. I am ready for another day off but I never take a sick day because we get paid for what we don't use at the end of the year. :)

    I took off on Friday, March 31, to move into a new abode. We are officially in the new place, and the PODS unit we used to move is being hauled away today.
