Ugh. I hate calling in sick.

This is parked across from my hotel.

Just called in sick for work. Been up for hours with ...issues... that I suspect are from dinner last night. It tasted great but obviously didn’t agree with me. I really hate calling in, especially on a trip where I know I am inconveniencing literally hundreds of people.


That’s the nature of the high speed aluminum tubing industry, though. It’s illegal and unsafe for me to work sick, and the people behind me wouldn’t want me there the way I am now. My replacement will be on the way in a couple hours. I’ve got a ton of sick time, this is what it’s for.

Guilt trips from myself are the worst.
