So, the question is, do I call out of sick at work tomorrow to go to the playoff round of the US Open?

I think its free.

You decide for me.

Thanks.

Damn, the only problem is that everyone would know why I called in Sick.

I've never called in Sick before.

Except when at this years Titans @ Chargers Wild Card round Playoff game an RV smashed my car and I go the day off to get the insurance part of it taken care of.

go to work, get paid...you know what's going to happen at the open.

You can watch all 27 minutes of highlights on ESPN at 5pm your time and if you're really desperate the next 59 minutes of knobbing after that at 6pm your time.

I'm sure hockey and olympic skiing are probably amazingly difficult sports, and very intriguing to hardcore fans/those who ski/play hockey; but they just bore the shit out of me.

Golf, however, amuses me. I love that show on golf channel where they take a pro and two amateurs and they play a round with them a give them golf pointers. What the hell is that called?

With all due respect, people over-value themselves everyday. "Eww, the company won't survive without me".

Bull. ****ing. Shit.

Take a goddamn personal day and do something for yourself.

There's not a company in America that can fire you for taking a personal day, regardless of the reason. If they tried, sue 'em back to the Stone Age.

Plus, if you're so "valuable", they wouldn't think of firing you, right?

I'm sorry to disagree but unless he's running the U.S.A, he's not that valuable. People miss a day of work here and there. For religious, personal, sick and just flat-out "sick of work" type of days. Companies don't disappear because someone calls in sick.

IF the company disappears, it wasn't much of a company, was it?

Well, my company isn't much of a company but it doesn't mean that my family depends on the income any less. Yes, sometimes I lose money because an employee doesn't show up. Some of my jobs are deadline based and if I miss a deadline I'll pay a fine. That comes out of MY pocket and it hurts and 100% of the time it's not because of something I've done it's because employees are too self-centered to see the big picture.

You're not stupid.

But, the guys that work for you (and that work for ANY contractor) are generally the bottom-of-the-barrel guys. Stoners, drunks and people with no ambition.

YOU have ambition. YOU have a vision. Finding people that share your vision while receiving a paycheck - that's hard to find.

You're in a tough biz. Hell, we're ALL in a tough biz. But you have to rely on people moreso than most. One of these days, you're going to bring the family to SoCal and I'm going to give you a point-by-point-point tour of my home and a few of my neighbors homes.

How is this a "moral" situation?

Unless he's used all of his personal days, it shouldn't be a problem.

At every job I've had in the past 15 years, I've had 2 weeks vacation pay, unlimited sick days and 5 personal days (it went to 3 weeks of vacation after 3 years). For the record, I barely used any sick days during that time. I never get sick.

He should have something similar. And again, people tend to over-value their worth to their company. No offense.

Moral in that he made the responsible decision rather than the technically selfish decision.

Don't get me wrong, I would support him either way. He obviously has more of a 40's and 50's mentality rather than today's mentality of me, me, me.

I don't mean that as a put down to anyone either. It is just todays society.

wtf dont you get here? 3 coworkers already had today planned off, had i not come in then 2 people would have had to pull the weight of 6 people. With me being there that weight wasnt so bad.

I guess I miss that part. My bad. I jumped in rather late. And it certainly wasn't in the thread starter.

What is it you do? Government contracts? Would the business you worked for collapse today under the stress of only two people, putting you and your company out of business?

Yes, 75% of a workforce missing is not a consideration? Especially on a Monday.

I work at a printing company, not that its THE most important industry, but when you think about it, every company needs printing (think of all the forms you run across at work everyday) and for a printing company to keep customers they must meet strict deadlines, or else the customers will take their business elsewhere.

I disagree.

He has the rest of his life to work.

He had only one chance to observe an historic sporting event.

He missed out.

When he's 70 years old, he'll be telling the story of how he should have used a personal day to witness Tiger Woods win the US Open in a playoff matchup.

NOT how he witnessed it, firsthand.

Hey I can see your side as well, but I guess if he felt that he likes his co-workers and didn't want to overburden them it was more important than said golf tournament.

If he would have stated in his thread starter that his absence would reduce the workforce by 75%, I might have felt differently. But since that was stated way back on page one, I missed it and based my opinion on the fact that he'd be the only person to miss work.

Unfortunately, most of my experience is in management. I have a lot of interviews, and been deemed overqualified. Apparently, employers think that when a job is beneath your skill level that you will not be happy, and therefore will move onto another job or position when the opportunity arises. Therefore, they want to hire people that will be challenged by the work.

Or they just hate white people/men.

As to the event, I'm all for historic events, regardless of the sport. I tore my MCL last summer, yet found a way to go the Dodgers vs. Giants games in LA just to see if Barry Bonds would break the home run record in my city. Seeing Tiger in my "backyard" and missing such a historic event is akin to passing on Ali-Frazier III or the Mets-Yankees "Subway Series". IMO, some events are just too good to pass up, regardless of the outcome.

Of course, this unique situation is made even more complicated because Buck doesn't actually work for you so it's tough to say exactly what you would have done or how you'd have reacted since he doesn't.

The only reason for my involvement in this thread was to urge someone to do something "special", since it was a given. Don't just "go to work" and regret missing out.

It wasn't about normal business or just listening to or catching parts of a normal sporting event while working. That's just as harmless as listening to music on the radio.

The gist of my point was to do some extraordinary - something you'd remember for a lifetime. Not something you'd regret missing.

Do we need to get a referee?


Depends.

Who's paying him off?

Gotcha beat.

I used to live across the street from Splittorff (and two doors down from Patek) and I used to play wiffle-ball with all the old Royals: Cookie, Jamie Quirk and yes, George Brett.

:D :D :D

I gotcha beat. JSplit and Heather.

I get what you're saying. I actually agree. I just disagree that THIS event was extraordinary. It's golf. I'll bet the people who were there saw roughly 8 shots apiece with any clarity and the rest of the day they were staring at the backs of people's heads. Honestly, I'd have rather spend a week at the mall in late December than share a golf course with 50k rabid golf fans. No. Thank. You.

I got to attend the 1958 Open when I was 13 years old. Now I'm 63 and I'm still telling people about it. Nothing great happened. Tommy Bolt won. It is certainly something you remember the rest of your life.

I'm no golf fan and haven't played in 20 years, despite the request of friends on a regular basis.

That's a lie, we all know you couldn't possibly have friends.

Thinking of others? Don't kid yourself. He was thinking how can I watch this without using a day of vacation.

He wouldn't last very long as a employee of mine. I'd see through his BS in a New York minute. Honest employees are the foundation to good employees.

Im glad I dont work for a dick like you.

I spent my 30 minute lunch break watching it, and I popped my head in maybe 10 times in the bosses office, for a minute or less to get an update from him.

I'm sure if you were my boss and you were watching it, you would scold me if I were to check in every once in a while, cause thats the kind of guy you are.

I hope you are proud, that you can see through me, over 2000 miles away. You sir, are a great man.

EDIT: Not to Mention that I don't get paid Overtime, and I stayed 10 hours yesterday, and made sure that I finished all my work before I went home. Have fun twisting this fact around to make yourself sound better.
