How do I ask to go home early?

My boss is a complete jerk and yelled at me for an hour that last time I needed 2 hours off to go to the doctor. Today, I am REALLY not feeling well, i'm exhausted, my head is pounding and I have been on the virge of vommiting all morning. If I go in and ask if I can go home early, he will yell then tell me I can go at 4 or 4:30 (i'm off at 5 anyways) So how do I go in and ask him, so that he will let me go, like now. So i can go home and vomit all day?

  • If I'm sick, I don't ask, I tell my boss I am sick and going home

  • I wouldn't ask him, I'd just vomit on the floor and hopefully he gets the hint. Well...maybe ask....and then say, ok but i'm telling you i'm sick.....then vomit. lol I'm sorry you feel like crap!....but don't take his crap either!

  • Wow. I'm sorry you are so ill. Tell him like it is. Say you don't want to be here getting everyone thing contaminated and ill too!! Its hard to be strong when you're fragile and down. But you can do it! Good luck! Hope you feel well soon!

  • I agree that I wouldn't ask, I would tell. Do you have sick time by chance? Even if not, you do not have to take abuse from your supervisor. Climb the ladder above him/her if you have to. Feel better soon!

  • Offer to come in early to make up for the time. Or arrange with another worker or two to be available to come in even when it is off days.

  • Go to the bathroom and then come and tell him you just threw up and need to go home. If there is ANY discussion you should go RIGHT to HR. GOOD LUCK!!!

  • Stick your head in, tell him you are leaving now cause you are sick. No need to be miserable till 4pm, if you will get the same outcome from him. Then go to the dr's and get a note to keep you home tomorrow as well. He cant do a thing about a dr's note. Hope you feel better

  • It's already 2:00. I would take some Motrin and wait it out if that is how he will react.

  • Well, its 2:00 on the East Coast. 11:00 on the West.
