    To role-play, never. Becasue of role-play and being seriously over froliced, yea, a time or two.

    I have also gotten home from a session, grabbed some breakfast and headed out to work a nine hour day. Trust me, call in. That was was Hell ride of a day that lasted a day for every fifteen minutes.

    Me not stupid, me learn and never do that again.

    I prefer not to list some of the more confusing phrases you've uttered. One of your most attractive traits, to me of course, is the mystery of what your really saying. Where would the fun be if you sat down and explained some of these things to me. I'd rather keep on guessing

    I have...but it was a couple of years ago. My old group from Missouri, where I use to live came up to celebrate my 21st birthday, and I called off work and told them I was sick. We met at their hotel room and gamed in their room then bar hopped the rest of the night, after a great 10 hour gaming session.

    i have never called in without a legitimate reason. legitimate to me.

    in fact, come to think of it. i don't think i've ever had work dispute the legitimacy of my reasons. just the frequency. ^^ and for those, i had medical documentation. =D

    To the phone; *cough* I am so sick, I can't make it.

    Off the phone: Wow, I feel miraculously better. No sense wasting the day going to work.

    Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.

    I will admit though that every time I have called in sick to pursue some form of entertainment, I always feel guilty and the days activities feel quite empty. In the end I know I'm letting somebody down that was counting on me and that never settles well. Not to mention I usually find myself really needing the pay I missed that day when it comes time to pay my bills. I think karma definitely comes into play when you call in sick for no good reason. This is most obvious when your actually sick and they won't cut you a break
