You: Sorry boss, I'm not gonna make it in today. Been throwing up and running a fever.
Boss: Are you sure you can't make it in? I mean we are really short today and we could use the help?
You: I can try, but my doctor said I may have swine flu. If you'd like me to come in, I'll try my hardest not to spread it to the entire office.
Don't think this hasn't already been discussed. My buddy and I work for a small but very successful food brokerage and there is literally just me, my coworker and my boss in the office. If we both call in sick the place shuts down and if just one of us calls in the other will be pissed like no other! LOL I might jump the gun and see if I can go ahead and get sick first...yep I'm starting to feel it.
