This is a question Awesome Sickies

A colleague has been off work for two weeks now - apparently he's got something they can't diagnose, (although they know for sure it's not Legionnaires, Malaria, BSE or AIDS, he's supposedly in isolation). We are all sure he's merely sitting in the sun waiting for the World Cup to come on the telly.

What have you invented to get off work?

I told you I was sick
I will never forget the time many years ago when I worked in a well known women's retail chain with a crazy mad nasty bitch for a boss. She absolutely refused to let people have time off sick - I tried to call in sick once and said that if I didn't come in then I wouldn't have a job to come back to! I was only a wee nipper, there's no way on earth I'd put up with that kind of crap now.

Anyway, one memorable day, one of my work colleagues (I shall call her Mona) approached the boss and asked if she could go home because she had an upset stomach. The answer was no. Now, looking back on this with the wisdom maturity brings, I don't know why Mona didn't just leave anyway. She was middle aged, married and a mother, and really should have stood up to the old cow. But instead she stumbled back to her spot on the work floor and suffered in silence. Until she had a bad attack of the runs and had an accident, on the shop floor, in front of everyone. Did the boss let her go home then? Did she hell. "Get yourself some new tights and knickers from the stand and get yourself cleaned up, we're busy." Absolutely unbelieveable.....
