I dread opening my work email account in the morning.

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.

Phone conversation with boss from the other office went well and she is sending me an invitation to a formal interview with their people. It's hard to interview when the reason you are leaving your current position is mostly because of the boss and coworkers at your current job but I said this and it was true- for the past two years I have been wondering what level I would be capable of working at under different circumstances, and I have heard that this office is very successful. It's true that I have heard only good things. I remember exactly where I was when I had this thought- the day was an absolute embarrassing shit show on every level, and I thought...can I do better than this? Yes, I can.

It's just so awesome when a patient answers their phone during an appointment. And by awesome, I mean RUDE. JFC, this pt just stopped her appt to talk on speakerphone to her neighbor for three solid minutes about mulch. I finally stood up to leave and she hung up. And it's always the older patients who do this, never the young people. Unless someone's dying and you know it's an emergency, turn your damn ringer off!

In response to a confession. There's a lot of jumping to conclusions on this one (unless I'm missing something). First, how do we know that this employee only started 7 months ago and was in their probationary period? Perhaps they're a long-time employee who just had a lot of call outs in a short period. Also, we don't know what their job is. Maybe it requires mental acuity so that serious/fireable mistakes aren't made. We also don't know the reason for them being unable to sleep. If you're unsure, there's a kinder way of asking questions instead of jumping the gun and being accusatory and assuming the worst of a person. Sheesh.

You called in because you didn't sleep well? Seriously?? And you're comparing that to someone who can't go in because they had surgery?

Yesterday I got phone call set up with the boss at another branch office, where there is going to be an opening. I met someone from there today, randomly, so I asked what it's like to work there. No leading questions, just what is it like to work there. This is what she said- that people have positive relationships and strong collaboration. I asked about the boss- she's organized, good followthrough. The opposite of my current job, in other words, especially the "positive relationships" part. I have a good shot at this, because I'm highly qualified and there's a shortage in the field. Good sign- when I emailed with the boss and we agreed on a time, she immediately emailed me back a google invite. One of my main beefs with my current boss is that she doesn't use google calendar, and I have to go through the front office for scheduling. Please let this work out! I know nothing's perfect, but I'm sick of this place. I want a fresh start.

In response to a confession. I hardly think you are getting screwed over. That's a bad level of absenteeism. Considering you were probably on probation the first few months, you are lucky they haven't fired you yet.
