ice, i know you can't go from ole dependable to slacker without drawing attention, but start picking your battles man. if you're sick you have the final say pull out the old projectile diarrhea trick and he'll beg you to stay home.
You guys should be able to get "Computer Call Center" jobs anywhere in the world. The people in "Computer Call Centers" come straight off welfare in the places where they set up large ones. Every computer repair store needs people to be first contact, and people with generic computer knowledge are enough. They pay better than most shit jobs. Well, sometimes.
Remember, if it's "sick leave" and they say anything and you can prove you were sick, that manager will lose his job when you sue. Sometimes it takes a little iron in the backbone to do it, but if that's what it takes, and you need to stay home, "Put up or shut up!"
