People tell me that my sarcasm and cynicism will get me into trouble some day. We'll see.

Sorry, Boss. I'm calling in dead ...

"Hello, Boss? I can't come in today. I'm sick, my spouse
is sick, and all my kids are sick. And because you dropped
my medical coverage, and we cannot afford health care
premiums, we are uninsured. So the only thing we can afford
now is home care, which includes chicken soup, tea, and
plenty of bed rest.

"I know the original intent of you providing me health care
over the years was to keep me healthy so I can show up every
day and be productive. But I guess I can understand how
that is becoming less affordable for you, too. I mean after
all, you've got to think of your CEO's retirement party and all.

"Anyway, I should be back to work in a couple of months."
