    DH & I discuss all our "battles" but I wouldn't want him to fight them for me nor him me. He has stepped in once to a situation I was having with family and it was appropriate and appreciated by all but it's the only time. No way known would I ring his boss nor would he ring mine for anything work related. For us it is overstepping the boundaries by calling each others bosses, we know people that think it's ok to ring the DH's boss but it's not for us.

    But fighting my battles no way in hell do I let anyone fight my battles for me a d if they did I would battling them cause it was my problem not his
    There are very few medical conditions which leave someone incapable of using a phone over a 1-2 hour period (unless you can only call in sick at a specific time and you happen to be incapacitated at that point).

    If you are passed out then call when you get up. Or call and leave a voicemail when you get up for a pee at 5am and know you will be crook.

    Sorry (and I'm. Not saying its the case with you) but I am sus whenever a spouse calls in.

    It's the same as when people get their spouses to call in sick for them at work: it looks pathetic and just raises questions about their intentions and the dynamics of the relationship.
    Questions intentions and dynamics of the relationship??? Could you explain that to me??

    My hubby's boss doesn't have email, so if my husband has been up all night throwing his guts up and is ginally getting some sleep, I will give a courtesy call to his boss in the morning to let him know DH won't be in! Now what dynamics and intentions needs to be questioned there?

    I think that is different to what the OP is talking about, I too would ring DH's boss if he was so sick that he couldn't use the phone or god forbid was in hospital but if there was a problem with something (say a pay rise or some other work related issue) I would not ever get involved. I thought that was what the OP was referring to.

    Since then though I've explained to employers that my throat is dumb and while smsing in sick is pretty poor too it's occasionally very necessary!

    I wouldn't want my DH to fight my battles- he's so non confrontational it'd be pointless!
    That said, we do discuss our battles and work together on them- we are a team after all.
    Having a spouse deal with work issues is entirely inappropriate though. But calling in sick on behalf of a spouse I see no issue with, I've done it when DH was in hospy for emergency treatment and when he lost his voice. It's just a courtesy to let his work know he won't be in and why when he is incapacitated. I don't see why that is suspicious unless its a weekly occurrence.
