When is the last time you left work/school sick?

So I got a nice surprise today:

Sprung a random fever at work and I feel like a bag of smashed dicks so I'm leaving work early, not typically something that I do (I tend to work through it) but the boss is away and it's slow enough that they don't need me. Bed and soup here I commmmmee.

Butthurt about missing out on the money though.

Make me feel better by telling me your epic/embarrassing/anticlimactic stories about leaving work or school sick.

  • The only time I left school early because I was sick was my freshman year of high school. I felt tired and dizzy all day. I eventually couldn't take it anymore, so I went to the dean's office and had the secretary call my mom.

    As far as work? My dogs had a fight one morning and I stupidly tried to break it up by pulling them apart. In hindsight, I probably should have kicked one of them or used a broom. Anyway, my hand got caught on one of their teeth. It got swollen really bad. I went to work, but I could do literally nothing because my hand hurt so badly. So I left early to go to the doctor's office and then went home after that.

  • Well it's been a while now since I don't have an employer anymore.

    I've gone home sick from work many a time, I don't like doing it but if I'm ill I'm ill. One job, I left because I was vomiting and I said I'm sorry I just can't do this, and packed my stuff up and left. I was then told off because, and quoting my boss, "I pay you to work not go home. I decide when your ill, not you" so I decided to give my resignation letter in the next day.

    My most hilarious being sent home was actually not to do with me. I woke up in the night to hear my sister in law being violently sick. I went to see if she needed some help and she was so ill she could barely stand. I put her to bed and cleaned up the bathroom, and I was on the early morning start at work - 6:30am. I went in, I told them what happened. Next thing, my manager pulled me to one side and asked to know exactly what I had done and how. I explained, she'd been really ill I cleaned it up with Cif and bleach, then I went to bed and got up for work. I was ordered to go home, change all of my clothes and have a full shower.

  • probably about 6 years ago. thought i just had really bad gas (haha) and called my dad no the way home to sort of give him my symptoms. he told me to go to the hospital. i reluctantly went to the ER. Turned out my appendix had ruptured. good thing i didn't just go home and get in bed. might have been the end for this guy

  • Bag of smashed dicks? That's an interesting way to describe your feeling. I have been working part time and learning part time for a few years and never got sick during either. But I did catch a couple of viruses on separate occasions when riding home from work. Last time was mid June, 2016.

  • Back in college, I was working in a kitchen after a heavy night of drinking. Literally took a 3 hour nap at 3am, to get to work by 7am.

    The smell of the food when I walked in almost made me throw up instantly, so I told my boss I had food poisoning and he let me leave.

  • End of last year I've had to apologize once, in the morning, when I had what initially looked like a heart rhythm disorder. Fortunately, much later it would become clear that I had an inflammation of my sternum.
    The symptoms are almost identican to heart problems :o
    I'm rarely ill, I've had periods of 5 years without one day of illness. It happens maybe once every 2 years that a bad infection keeps me in bed...

  • Mashed dicks 🤔, oh my.

    Recall this only happening once.
    Was on a school trip to the movies and puked right at the start.
    Found out that I suffered a concussion earlier that day while ice skating.

    Suffered daily headaches for the following 2-3 years. Rip sanity.

  • I once walked upstairs to the classroom and looked outside to the schoolyard to see if the others were on their way, and when I turned my look forward again, I immediately hit the sharp edge of the fire door. Been brought to hospital due to a laceration on my forehead :D

  • Last time I left work due to being sick, I actually got sent home because I had a really bad cold and was coughing my lungs out. Not to mention I was working in food service, so mixing sick and food service don't go hand in hand lol.

  • At least you still look pretty sick! I showed up to work apparently looking like such crap that they immediately called the supervisor and sent me home.

  • I don't remember the last time I was sick at school or work. Though I do remember this one time in high school. I felt so awful and ended up extremely dizzy. The level of dizziness was like if you were bring spin around at the make speed possible. So I had to leave for the day.

  • It was last November. I kept feeling faint at school and was very tired and felt very cold. It was my blood pressure (say thank you period) and couldn't lift it up. Not even with the salt I am always carrying around. My boyfriend had to pick me up, as it was too dangerous for me to walk to the bus station.
