Does anyone know?

Has anyone ever gotten sick the 1st week of a new job? I am home sick and it was to be my 1st today. I started getting sick on Friday and I was to start today. Do I even attempt to put a sick day down as today? Wonder if they will give me a sick day? What a way to start! Real bad bronchitis and I haven't been sick like this for over 10 years. Must be bad stuff going around?

  • I don't know if I'd try to get out sick on the first day. I think it would look bad. That's just me, though.

  • I think that if there is anyway to go, do it,, they will see you made the attempt, and will be able to tell you are ill, if not I would get a doctor's note for sure! Why do these things always happen?
