Perfect attendance isn’t just a thing of the past (i.e. elementary school).  Believe it or not, some people have actually never missed a day of work!  These are the people who never get sick (or show up to work even when they’ve got the sniffles- which is a story for another day) and schedule appointments on weekends and days off.  And despite the fact that fewer companies offer incentives or rewards to workers for perfect attendance these days, many of these dedicated employees say their flawless track record is due to the fact that they simply love their jobs.  One doorman at a Hyatt Regency in Tampa, Florida has had perfect attendance for an incredible 26 years.  With all the sick days that guy has saved up, he could retire early.
