You keep them happy.

These guys are paid hourly, they lose money by not going to work. Yet, they're blowing in sick because they don't want to go to work. They're not happy, they don't like their jobs, and they'd rather lose money than show up to work. It's a failure in management.

A direct supervisor will help. Someone who is responsible for making sure that they have everything that they need to work effectively and successfully, and to interface with the business on their behalf, as well as to hold them accountable.

At work I have been covering for a person on vacation.  She schedules our construction crews to maintenance type jobs/service calls to a bunch of apartment complexes.   I schedule these fuckers after confirming with the tenants, and put everything on a master calendar.

Today 3 of 15 people called in sick, its  major pain because I have to find people to go to their jobs.

I don't believe they're all sick, that would be 20% sick rate.     they get paid $15-$25 an hour and have no immediate supervision they just drive around fixing stuff. 

How can i get them to stop calling in sick?

Yeah, my Tiburon is the last year they made it before discontinuing them. I don't blame you for buying foreign vehicles, American cars are crap.

Audi? I have an innie.

An old belly button joke.

Gooey. I had a Hyundai before I went over to Mazda. I loved my Hyundai. They discontinued the model I'd had, so I looked elsewhere.

Funny thing: My older brother works in marketing for Genital Motors (GM) for some 15 years and can get me a discount on GM cars. Fuck that He's so disappoint in me because I buy foreign. Sorry, bub, but your GM discount doesn't equal me buying a shit vehicle.

I've got a rental until I decide what to do.  I have a friend who is one of the local trial lawyers.  I told him to go for all he can get and sue that fucker, don't be a pussy about it.   The guy who hit me had a BMW SUV so he could be rich.  I'll get something out of it.

I don't even drink anymore but i know that wasn't directed at me. 

Do you get a better car?  Too bad we are not closer Adam would love to sue that person for you.

Space will get caught sooner or later, too many lucky breaks at this point.  Space you should take this advice a little more seriously.

I had a Q7.  A drunk driver slammed into me at a light at 2 AM this past weekend and totaled it.  I'm mostly fine with bruises and a few stitches.  Hit me on passenger side right after I had dropped my date off.  If she had been in that seat, it could have been very bad.  He never even hit the brakes from what the police can tell.

Anyways, I'm now looking at a F Pace SVR to cheer me up.

Don't drink and drive.  You know who you are.

Ogre thanks for the tip!

I had one of these about 10 years ago and spun it on a puddle in the freeway.
