How Not To Take A Sick Day

sick day, caught, busted, hr, kyle, stupid, facebook, myspace
Dear Kyle,
You are a total dumbass who doesn’t understand that other people (your bosses, included) also have the Internet. The next time you take a fake sick day, maybe you should not post it on your Facebook page. But since you are clearly a dumbass, you probably will anyway.

    Not a responsible person. He knew that he had to work the next day.

    He was sick. It is not the concern of the company that his illness was due to alcohol or any other bad decisions. All the company needs to be concerned with is that he is not able to work that day.

    Am I saying he was smart for getting trashed the night before he works? No… Should it be ignored? No…

    One could argue that someone catches a cold because they didn’t wear a sweater outside and don’t deserve a day off because it was self-induced. Rediculous right? An irresponsible decision does not warrent breach of contract.

    Again, The cause of the illness doesn’t matter. and the fact that the boss goes out looking for this information and then holds it against the person professionally just means that he doesn’t belong under that title. There is no room for drama like this in a managers position. Too many people are handed manager positions “because they have put their time in” when they really aren’t qualified. The biggest part of being a manager is being able to deal with people, good and bad. Certainly he shouldn’t re-hire this person when the contract expires, or shouldn’t give him a great raise at review time.

    maybe he just drank so much that he became sick. Alcohol poisoning is sickness right?

    You’re the kind of asshole that the government should kill or put in prison or something.

    I think all employers should be killed… they are greedy bastards. I don’t give a shit if they have worked 100 hour weeks for 5 years without pay… They make me do the menial tasks that I can’t possibly fuck up… and they pay me like crap.

    Really, I should make as much as them. I mean, we’re all equal, right?

    The government should at least tax the hell out of them. No, really, since they are so smart, the government should just make them slaves so that I can have free stuff.

    Oh… look at the time… Gotta go do some meth and go down to collect my unemployment check.

    As an employer, I would see someone getting drunk and being hung over as a matter of choice and obvious consequence.

    Kyle was trying to steal money.

    He’s a thief.

    Ahh, you’re saying “No big deal… the employer has lots of money…”

    If that’s what you’re thinking, well, then, you deserve the life you get.

    Oh yeah, and you’re an idiot.

  13. matty says:

    LOL! I have to laugh at this. this was all over the news in Australia around 4 months ago when it occured. This was a aussie bloke and he was infact at work and this was a prank put together by his work mates!

    It did almost get him sacked for no reason though. he is still safely working at the same work currently.

    Can’t believe this is still floating around!

  14. Tbolt says:

    I don’t see how he got pwned. He determined he was too ill to work and took a 1-day leave. In fact, his facebook status states he was “SICKIE”

  15. Mucker says:

    He should just claim he’s an alcoholic and that it’s a psychological medical condition. Then they can’t fire you either. Of course that’s really swarmy and sleazy

    still being ill after a night out is a valid medical reason not to attend work the next day.
    Now updating face book in the way the lad did wasnt the best idea but its not proof he wasnt well enough to attend work, its just proof he was well enough to go online and silly enough to add the post.

    It is because the tag line said that he was trashed. How does one get trashed (not garbage trashed) without alcohol and that it was updated the same day that he was “sick”.

    It’s still medical. If I am sick, I am sick. It doesn’t matter if I did it to myself or not. If I get food poisoning at a party the night before I suppose that’s my fault too right? Who drinks to be sick? Exactly. I would still have a field day with the boss and his supposed proof. BTW, please prove I posted that to my facebook page, others have my login info etc etc.

    i think he should sue the company for violation of contract.
    hangover is a medical issue resulting from lack of oxygen and some other shit.
    it is more a medical issue that he was not at work than a ‘skipping’ issue or a ‘broke car’ issue
    he did follow all laws regarding consumption of alcohol

    sue ur work for not recognizing alcohol hangover as a medical issue.

    the guy was trashed.. therefore he was sick.. I would have taken off too. yall act like youve never skipped a day of work/school b4. stop bein soo damn self-righteous. This shit isnt even that serious. Yall trynna act like “omg how dare he. that was sooo stupid.” he got caught, big whoop. Wasnt an idiot move. Just one of those annoying coincidences.

    When I call into work with a BS excuse I post it to my Facebook and hope my bosses look at it. For example, “Cooter is heartbroken over the loss of his Aunt.” “Cooter has a serious case of diarrhea.” What a fucking moron this Kyle is.

  41. Lynda says:

    You guys argue a lot over jokes …. morons.

  42. Anonymous says:

    If this was real, the posting would have confirmed what the poster said to his employee, not the other way around. He admitted to being sick in the post and that is what he told his employer. He never said to his employer what made him sick, but he claims that his contract doesn’t require him to do so anyway.

    But, alas, it is not real anyway.

  43. Robbie says:

    haha i got screwed like this a few times, well i wouldnt do exactly that but id post on facebook “whos out tonight?” and post about where i was going then call in work tomorrow and they would know as i have almost all the staff i work with on my facebook. lmfao,

  47. Anonymous says:

    misspelling….his “employee” should be his “employer” in the first sentence. Basically, the posting confirmed that the employee was sick and out for medical reasons. Drunk is definitely a medical condition in the same way that eating something that causes a medical condition would be. Now, if he is out too often for “Medical” reasons that might be controllable by him, the employer may decide to fire him…but that is another story.

  49. Anonymous says:

    You’re joking, right? You’re saying that going out and getting wasted + having a hangover is comparable to eating some food that happens to have been prepared incorrectly and therefore makes you sick? It sounds like you’d consider ANYTHING to be medical. If you sleep in, your being exhausted from going to sleep at 4am is a medical condition. If you just don’t feel like going, your unhappiness in the workplace is a medical condition.

    wow ok… after reading the orginal post and reading the comments it might be real or it could be a joke either way i can see Kyle is NOT responsible.

    For kyle or some one like kyle ( There is many people who do get trashed and called into work) if you work the next day don’t get trashed. If you know its going to be a special occasion then take a vacation day to recover. but if you call into work DON’T post it on Facebook. I mean come on i’m friends with half the people at my job on facebook/myspace and the sad thing is that i know more about them from reading their personal pages randomly then from actually talking to them.

    Also if your supposed manager is asking for proof on a 1 day call in then that means you call in a lot and already on the list of people they could do without, idiot.

    errm, a “cheque” is one of those bits of paper that your bank gives you to write on when you want to give someone money. Everything else is “check” (especially the verb). UK plus Aussie plus probably most of the Commonwealth.
