Calling in Sick

An alarm clock wakes Lynn. She gets out of bed and gets ready for work. She puts on her clothes and combs her hair. Then she lies down on the couch.


Lynn does not feel well. She has a fever. Her body aches. She is sick. What should she do?


First, Lynn must call her boss. She calls and says, “Hi, Mr. Clark. This is Lynn. I am sick today. I will not be able to work.”


“I’m sorry to hear that, Lynn. Thank you for calling. I hope you feel better soon. Let me know when you will return to work,” says Mr. Clark.


“Okay, I’ll call you when I am better,” says Lynn.
