    I have also had similar problums. I am fortunate that my customers have been verry understanding. How about doing them in the evening after work? I don't think calling in sick is a good practice. This for most of us is for extra income, and if we call in sick their is no extra. Plus, most companies would consider that a conflict of intrest. Meaning that if they cought you they could, and most likely would fire you. I am protected by a good union, and I know that I would be fired. Hope I helped.
