What ever happened to just calling in “sick” and not telling everyone and their brother your business?  Well, apparently just calling in sick doesn’t happen anymore.  Here is a synopsis of two messages I received today from employees who won’t be in today …..


Hi, this is [name removed].  I won’t be in today because I am …. [cough cough] …. not feeling well.  I will be in  …… [cough cough …. hack …. spit out a loogie] …… later this week. 

Completely disgusting!  Who hacks up a loogie and spits it out while leaving a voice mail?? 


Hi, this is [name removed] and my manager is [name removed].  I just wanted to let you know that I would not be in today due to loose bowels and vomiting. 

GROSS!  Ever heard of a thing called TMI?  If not, this is the definition!
