As unfair as it is, he is legally correct. As it is your choice they are not legally bound to pay you for time off work unless you take it as vacation time. It's not classed as a sickness.

I know it's too late to tell you this now that your boss already knows. You would have been better off lying to them and claiming something else like depression, flu??

I know loads about this as it my area of expertise. Let me know if you need anything else.
