Sick Kids

    Haha, maybe so, maybe so. I tend to get sick on Fridays because I’ve run myself down over the long week. One Friday I told my boss I had to go home because I was too sick to work. It was a gorgeous day outside and I wasn’t coughing. He looked out the window, looked at me, and clearly said with his facial expression that he thought I was lying. Nevertheless, he let me go. I dragged myself home and slept the rest of the day. I had another boss call me at home on a gorgeous sick day to ask a question, but I’m pretty sure he was checking to make sure I wasn’t lying.

    For those of us with little kids, I’ve not used a personal sick day in a couple years, rather all of my sick days are used when my kiddos get sick.

    We just have our ‘sick’ days lumped in with vacation time- why make ppl lie?
