Calling in sick

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing the sick-leave provisions set out by their contract.

One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in sick yesterday!"

There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score.

A union negotiator broke the silence in the room.

"Wow!" he said. "Just think of the score he could have had if he wasn't sick!"

Okay, somebody on this website told a story on himself about calling in sick with white fever on a powder day and then unning into his boss in a liftline (who had taken a vacation day). His punch line was that she didn't give him a very good raise a few weeks later at performance appraisal time.
'fess up, if you're reading this.

Client: I'm flying in for meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday. When can we get together Tuesday?

Me: Wednesday. I'm skiing Tuesday. It's my birthday...

(True story. And we did meet on Wednesday! He's a great client.)

I won't work with someone who doesn't get the need to make turns...

I used to have to travel to CO Springs and Denver for business at least once a month. Between November and March I would always take an extra day and go skiing. Since I stayed at a friend's house the extra night, all it cost me was an extra day car rental at the $35/day corporate rate. I could usually get a lift comp ticket.
