In response to a confession. I have insomnia too, and I go to work, but for people who don't have insomnia, a night without sleep is rough. I shared an office with this chick once who complained "I woke up last night!" I was like...you woke up and didn't get back to sleep? and she said, "No, I WOKE UP!" as if this was a huge issue. Apparently she woke up, rolled over, and went back to sleep. I wake up 5-6 times every night easy and it's no big deal.

This is why so many companies require a doctor's note if you call in sick. There's sick and there's 'I didn't sleep well and don't feel like dragging my butt into work.' People have been fired for less at my job. Then again, it's a hospital, so not showing up means scrambling to find coverage so patients are cared for properly.

Client just dropped f_bombs in my ear for asking him to get me W4's for his new employees. Again. Every month this guy has new people, and every month people quit, and every damn month he doesn't get me the paperwork I need. Aaaaand today he blows up at me and yells at me -his accountant, who HE pays - for trying to make sure he's in compliance with tax law. Which is, ya know, my JOB. I cannot imagine why he has so much trouble getting people to work for him. Hmmm. I wonder.

If I called in every time I didn't sleep well, I wouldn't have a job. I would, at the very least, attempt to show up and leave early if I absolutely couldn't do it. Too many people depend on me being there. I'd fire someone for frequently calling in; not because I'm evil, but because it's company policy to give an occurrence for such things. Of course, legit illnesses are excluded.

In response to a confession. Calling out sick five times in seven months is too much? Haven't you ever gotten a bad cold, or the flu? I have sick days. They are mine, and I use them when I need to. There were times when I had none left. Right now I have 15- five left from this year and 10 that are banked from previous years. I shouldn't have to feel lucky to have this. Every worker should have paid sick days that they can use. If you have insomnia, haven't slept, and feel like shit, you should have the option of calling in sick. My union has a catastrophic leave bank. Each of us can donate a sick day to someone who needs it, so they can use those days if they run out and have to go on extended leave due to a serious illness like cancer or a heart attack. Anyone who donates a day is eligible to apply if they are in need. We take care of each other. I hate to see workers pointing the finger at other workers, and fighting like crabs in a barrel.

OP here of the called because of no sleep confession. I've been at my job for 10+ years. I've had a rough last year of medical issues and sleep problems. Other than that I've ALWAYS had good attendence. You don't know me so don't jump to conclusions.

No matter how long someone has worked at a job, IMO calling off sick five times in seven months is excessive. Everywhere I've worked would have approached me with either 'counseling' from HR or a write-up. Notice I said IN MY OPINION, so PLEASE don't attack!

If I didn't sleep WELL I'd haul my ass to work. If I didn't sleep AT ALL then I think I would have to call in. I don't think I would be able to do my job like that. But usually (and I think in this case) the whole "I didn't sleep AT ALL last night!" Is just an exaggeration.

In response to a confession. You're right, I misread the 7 months. However, the OP still sounds like an entitled brat with poor attendance. People with health issues and surgery get over them and go back to regular attendance usually. This person wonders why she get in trouble, but sounds like she just doesn't want to work.
