Default Your best "get a day off" call

So I work every Saturday for the past year or so

Today I felt like enjoying my Saturday with friends and just needed a day off

So I call in, get the girl general manager, I explain to here need a day off because I hurt my foot last night, she instantly cuts me off and says well I need you today so try to get someone else to cover your shift or I need a doctors note. Se caught me off guard so I was like uhhhh, okay. I hung up defeated. No one is going to pick up a Saturday shift.

An hour later I called back.

I told her I had tried to get someone to cover my shift but I couldn't. Then quickly went into my story that last night I had rolled my ankle playing ball and that it's really swollen and I simply cant put weight on it, I don't need a doctor I just need a day off my feet. Then there's silence....

She finally responds...FINE, try to get someone to cover your shift and keep me posted. I was like ahh my bad I'm sorry, she bishly replies, uh huh. Then we hung up.

I started flicking off my phone in victory over the witch and basking in my glory as I now have the day off.

Time to go play ball

You guys got any good call in sick stories?

I'm a waiter so my jarb isn't that serious and I don't think I'd request a day off just to play ball. Today I woke up with a feeling to be freeeeeeeeee, couldn't be held down by the man today. Nothing huge going on today, just sometimes you need a day off.

I texted something like "I've been shitting and throwing up all night im not coming in" after my boss called me out for faking, and it worked. he didn't say a word to me about it the next day.

In the future just tell your employer that you have a family emergency. They try to get too nosy just tell them respectfully that it is private. Ive been using that for too long, it is flawless as long as you dont abuse it ie use it more than once a year

The bossheads aren't allowed to ask us for a doctor's note unless it's 3 straight days. "I'm sick, asking for S/L" is all it takes. They can't ask details, only approve or deny but really they can't deny requests either.

But then again I don't go calling in when I "wanna be free", just when I'm actually sick. I appreciate my job and have a sense of responsibility, you heard of that?

I usually just ramble on with various symptoms and they go for it. My last supervisor told me to go to the doctor every time so I had to quit lol. I might fake call in sick like 3 times a year because I never get sick and never get to use my tons of sick hours I build up.
