Today, despite having a stomach bug, I went into work, as my boss is overseas and had warned me not to take any sick leave until she returned. After 4 hours and vomiting twice, I left. She found out and sent me an email bitching me out for coming in sick. FML

kindly remind her of what she told you before she left, and then finish the sentence by mumbling "bitch" under your breath. that'll teach her!

Well, I'm sure if SHE had a stomach bug, she'd call in sick! What a jerk. Feel better soon, OP!

Hopefully there are laws in ops country preventing the firing of employees under that circumstance

your passive aggressive skills are impressive! lol. seriously though OPs boss is a mega bitch.

Or if her boss hears that, will fire her! D:

Sorry about that OP. Tell her that you came in despite being sick since she told you to come. Not only will you prove her contradiction, but you'll be seen as an especially loyal employee!

Well, if you had stayed longer, you would've exposed even more people to your sickness, which would've meant more sick days from everyone. So, really, you were doing your boss a favor!

Your boss has got issues. You sort your health out, get better then sort her out afterwards

Agreed. Any boss that tells you before they leave not to take any sick days is a jerk and will probably get sued at some point in their lives. When people are sick, they are allowed to not come into work, it's their right, and it's actually better for the company because then the sickness isn't spread. Whenever you are seriously sick op, you should call in sick (especially for a stomach bug where you're throwing up!). If your boss tries to yell at you later for it (which I don't think she will after this incident) then just tell her you were really sick and thought 1 or 2 sick days was better than spreading it and causing about 10 other people to take 1 or 2 sick days as well.

Next time you have to vomit, just make sure you leave a gift in her office

Where is the sympathy in her? She should be grateful that you came in at all

kudos for at least tryin

At least you weren't fired, OP

I say bitch her out! Or quit. She doesn't seem to treat you well at all...
