Bar Manager answers a phone call from an employee. After the usual introductions, this is the following conversation…
Bar Manager: “What’s up?”
Employee: “Yeah, I really don’t think I’m going to make it in today… You see, I’m sneezing a lot.”
After a moment of silence and some back and forth comments, I said, “Well then as you know, company policy states that the next time you come in you need to have a doctor’s note confirming that you are indeed ill and cannot come in for your shift.”
Employee: “Well I’m not going to pay a co-pay and go to the doctor for a common cold!”
Bar Manager: “Then I guess we’ll see you in four hours for your shift!”
The employee proceeded to come in, stand in the corner for an hour, and walked out. We never saw her again.
