What Calls Around Comes Around

, , , , , | Working | March 27, 2018

(I work in fast food, which means health codes. A big one being, simply put, if you are sick, you can’t work with food. Needless to say, when I get sick one day, I phone in accordingly.)

Manager #1: “All right, I’ll find somebody to cover your shift. Get some rest.”

Me: *very drowsy, and barely able to talk through fits of coughing* “Will do.”

(About ten minutes later I get a phone call.)

Manager #2: “Hey, would I be able to ask you to work later today? Somebody from [Our Location] phoned in sick.”

Me: *long pause* “Was it [My Name]?”

Manager #2: “Uh… Yeah. How did you know?”

Me: “Because I’m the one who phoned in sick.”

Manager #2: “OH! I had names mixed up. Sorry. Well, get some rest.”

(We had a good chuckle, once I got better, about how I got phoned in to cover my own sick day.)
