I call in RARELY, maybe a few times a year actually. I have 2 daughters and the only time I call in is to stay home and take care of them. When I am sick I still drag myself to work because my place of employment can be a bit ridiculous. And when I called in last month because one of my children was not feeling well my boss said "Is there anyone else that can watch them?" WTH?????? NOOOOOOO! When my child is sick they need ME or their dad, not someone else. Not to mention....who is going to want my sick kid to come infect them and their home and spread the cooties? I can't stay at home, so I do the best I can and am a very dependable and dedicated employee. I am not like some of my coworkers that call in because they have the self inflicted brown bottle flu. AND I might add I have been with the company for almost 10 years now.

I work outside the home part time ( 3 days a wk, 4 hours each day) ONLY just to get outside the home and interact with people my age. When I have to call in bc my kids are sick or I have a family emerg, NO they do not say anything. They know I have two children that have been real bad sick off and on for the last 4 months and each time I need to call in, I bring in doc excuses. I work at home when I feel like it and bring in a great income so IF I was to lose this job, its no big deal as my kiddos come FIRST and always will :)

My mom watches my kids so if they are sick grandma takes excellent care of them so I can work. My employer has sent me home a couple times when they found out my children were sick and paid me. They are actually great I hate using days in case one of my kids get really sick. My husband died three years ago and if I don't get paid we don't eat. They don't give moms like me PA so I have no choice but to work or to quit and lose my home and then get on welfare. So I work when I can and rarely miss work unless my employer will pay me for the time off.
