    They probably have a 3 strike policy. So you have earned your first strike is my guess. Do you know what you have done wrong?

    Yes I know this is stupid but I told my employer which is an recruitment agency that I cant come to work because I'm sick and
    then I accidently send him a text message that I'm in town centre, this was sent to him accidently.

    Because he is annoyed that you lied?

    Probably because he is annoyed that you have lied. Its a bit bad/unprofessional to tell you that you have a strike by text though.

    As above. He's telling you you've been caught out and you 'played your joker', 'lost a life' or any other euphemism for been give a chance. You haven't been fired, but you are being warned that you will be next time to do something wrong.

    He's not replying because you are an annoying little g*t who caused damage to his business reputation with whoever you are working for.

    You should not text him and get on with doing a good job so that you can get a good reference.

    Listen get your facts right before you talk. You don't know which company I work for and what my job role is.

    First of all I really was ill when I told them. Even though I was ill I could still do everyday things like Walk and even jog a little bit. Because of the nature of my work I have to lift heavy objects all day, therefore with my minor illness I felt like couldn't do it. There's no issue with that is there. Then for some reason I had to go to my town centre to get something and I saw something super cheap and was letting a friend know about it via text but I accidently sent it to my employer and it clearly stated that I,m in my local town center. Because if this he sent me the "Strike" text. Then I replied explaining everything in a SINGLE text but he didn't reply.

    Usually he instantly replies.

    Sp please tell me what you mean by "Played the joker" and "Lost a life."

    I think a reasonable interpretation is "don't do it again or you're fired"
