Most full time employees have about a week of sick days they can use throughout the year for "unplanned personal leave." And most of us wind up with a surplus come December.

Assuming you're in a "use it or lose it" situation, do you take the time and call in sick?

On one hand, you've earned the time. It's yours to take, right?

On the other hand, does it feel just a little dishonest to take sick time when you're not really sick?
