which is correct?
He was taking a sick day today?
He took a sick day today?
I have a lot of allowed weight limit that I won't use?
I have a lot of space still available that I wouldn't be using?
So you are saying that "He was taking a sick day today"
is correct ?
I feel as if it is wrong.
because he already took the sick day.
I wouldn't say "he was taking a sick day." I would say "he is taking a sick day" if I didn't say "He took a sick day."
The only time I think I would say "he was taking..." would be if he knew in advance that he was going to be sick. Or a company had a policy that sick days had to be used or forfeited. Then you might say (to a third party) "John is coming in today cause he was taking a sick day today."
I would say 'He took a day off sick'.
Thanks. I agree.
