Kinda off topic but it is interesting that you guys refer to informing your employer that you will not be at work due to illness as "calling out sick" and here we refer to it as "calling in sick".

I have also noticed that some of you have used "waiting on line" instead of "waiting in line" at the bank for instance. Interesting.

I will also add that after 3 days of calling "in" sick, every employer I have ever worked for requires a doctor's excuse.


I've never heard anyone say "calling in sick" in NY.  "Waiting on line" or "waiting in line" is pretty interchangeable but "in" is more common here.
