Like the hospital called and said he just wasn't coming in that day?

I think this is the worst thread title of all time. Not worst in the sense that it displays stupidity or poor taste, but worst in a substantive, moral sense.

"A true tragedy: death as excuse" suggests that in OP's mind, not only is the the recent death of a spouse insignificant, but that it's a true tragedy that he's being inconvenienced by it.

No, the guy called in and said he couldn't come into work because he had passed away. I told him to bring a doctors note. He showed up a couple of days later alive and well, and jobless.
