Your Request Is Sickening (Video)

Extras, Videos

(Performance review time: everything is excellent, get a big raise, and then…)

Manager: “We need to talk about your sick days…”

Me: “Okay…”

Manager: “You used all of them this year.”

Me: “Yes, I don’t believe in coming to work sick and infecting others.”

Manager: “You used most of them last year, too.”

Me: “Yes, I got the flu and stayed home.”

Manager: “We need you to try not to do that again.”

Me: “Get sick?”

Manager: “Yeah.”

Me: “Sure… I’ll try.”

(I left shaking my head and made a point to use every sick day for the next few years!)
