    Re: Question

    Hello Unreg,

    1. "She calls in sick" means "she phones her workplace to say that she is ill and won't be coming to work today".

    2. "She calls out, sick" means "she is sick and gives a cry".

    You would very seldom encounter the second sentence, but the first sentence is quite common.

    All the best,
