I was off in November last year because I had conjunctivitis. T'was horrible. I went in on the morning with it in one eye, a couple of hours later it was in the other eye and I was in agony and scared to touch anything in case I passed it on.
I think my boss thought I should of stayed but there was not chance.

Oh god at my old place I was always throwing a sicky. I'd say at least once a month I hated it there!

Thursday / Friday last week. I was actually the most ill on the wednesday and i came into work, so although i wasn't feeling 100% on the thursday friday i could have probably come into work.

Depends what you mean by a sickie, to me that is ringing in sick when you aren't actually ill, in which case I have never done it.
As for when I've been off sick, erm well last weeked, next weekend, all of December and all of January ...

I've never thrown a sickie. Last time I was ill off work was about three years ago. In the last ten years of FT work I've had 3days sick, half a day for a hospital apt & three &a half days off for funerals. Just touching wood that I don't jinx myself by saying this!

I've never thrown a sickie and certainly haven't been off for a hangover or anything like that. I've often gone in when I've been ill and have even gone to work with no voice. But was off Nov - Mar with illness that meant I couldn't do my job however I think if I had an office job I would have been able to continue with that.

I have never thrown a sickie, I work as a nanny and if I can't work then the parents can't work so I'd feel really bad! I was off sick in September for a day, I had Labyrinthitis and it was really horrid. I was going through a really horrible time at that time and the doctor was so sweet to me she made me cry, proper snotty crying!

A sickie when I could have really gone in? Probably about 2006. I have had 3 lots of mat leave since then so I am not really a goodie goodie!
