I used to be able to call in sick, but now that I work for myself, it's much harder to do.
Not impossible, because I'm very gullible, but much harder.
Regardless, there will be no calling in sick for a while because my busy season has arrived. I'm prepping for the craft shows, and there are many things that need my attention. There are new cartoons, products, signage, booth revamping, and getting help during the show because my sister went and got herself a job and refuses to call in sick when she's not!
Good for her employer, but not so good for me.
