So I am a good employee. I stay back late , always on time and I work hard. I was sick on a Monday and I could feel myself getting worse. I asked my colleague for the number of my boss in case I felt worse the next day. On Tuesday I felt terrible so I texted my boss to let her know I was sick. I wanted to text her as early as possible on the morning I was sick so she could put provisions in place. I fell asleep and I woke up to 2 missed calls and text messages asking me to ring her ASAP. She rang me again and I answered. she never said hello but She raised her voice over the phone and said that I should of called and that it was company policy. I could barely speak I was that sick and tired so I just said ye and she asked if I was going to the doctor and to text her later on and we said goodbye. The next morning she pulled me into the office and start asking me why I didn't know that I needed to call. I said nobody told me and she start asking me how I didn't know that. She also asked me why I asked for her number the previous day. I had to explain to her that I felt myself getting worse so I asked for her number. The only reason she knew that was because when I wasn't answering the phone the colleague I asked for her number said that I was sick the day before. Do you think my boss was out of line? I can't help but feel angry at how she treated me. There is a security risk as I work in a bank but I still felt like she was out of line.

Don’t have to be angry, in most circumstances, you ought to have talked to your boss on the previous day about how you felt, and the probability of you missing work on the following day and she who have given you the direction.0

Nope. You were out of line. You should have spoke or emailed the first day to warn that you may be sick. She could have dealt with it then. Not an hour before work starts the next day.
She may be your boss but she is not psychic
