    over this, despite all their pants-wetting about it.  I have never yet been in a job anywhere in which production actually went down if one or even two employees called in sick.  We just had other workers temporarily take up the slack for the day. Production didn't decline by even one widget.

    And if the employee really is so valuable and so utterly irreplacable that the company will produce nothing and lose a whole day's production boo hoo if he doesn't show up when he's sick, then the guy deserves a hell of a lot more than what they're paying him anyway.  (shrug)
