"Went to my management staff and asked who called in sick today. I figured it would be a good way of knowing, for sure, who's gay."
[He was joking, btw.]
"We were at 100%. Probably first time ever. Guess no one wanted to be suspected."
That kinda tells you everything you need to know. It would be one thing if everyone had ignored the call and caused barely a ripple. It's quite another when everyone takes it as a cue to show up. I wonder how many straight people who otherwise might have had to call in sick, due to a cold or the flu or something, came to work anyway out of fear of being suspected of being gay?
Best attendance ever.
