True Confessions

On April 21st 1992, TSG called in sick from this pay phone:

We were perfectly honest during the short conversation with our boss. We said that we wouldn't be making it in to to work and that we had some kind of fever.

Honesty is the best policy.

And that was probably better than saying, "Um, I'm kind of high right now."

Too bad the old San Jose Box Office at the old Town & Country shopping center isn't around anymore. (the whole place got torn down and is now the site of the oh-so-hip "Santana Row".

I could've taken a picture of The Box Office and blogged about how I called in sick (on a scheduled Saturday, no less) so I could go stand in line to get Who tickets back in 1980.

It hasn't been the case for a long time, but back in the day my philosophy was that sometimes,some things were just more important than going in to the office. (I believe that I was impressed by similar behavior by my Uncle Bud when our family visited Minnesota in the early 60s. I have an extremely vivid memory of being told to be quiet when he was on the phone calling in to tell his boss he was sick.)
