I don't know if my mom got flack for it. I think she just told people we were sick!*guano*I can't stand this mentality either. I grew up in a household where we kids were allowed to take what my mom called "mental health" days if we wanted to, 1, maybe 2, times a year. This meant laying around and watching TV, but not needing to be physically sick.
Someone needs a day off, for whatever reason, it's really nobody's business. Unless it's a persistent abuse of the situation.
my mom did this for us and I do this for my kids. Do you get flack for it from other people? Some folks think because kids dont have adult concerns they dont get stressed and need days off.
sorry to guano your thread.
Right now I freelance, so if I need a day off, I take it. OTOH, if I really am sick and there's a deadline or I've been hired for a special project, well, too bad for me.
Hey, how's your ankle? [sorry to double guano, Pixie]
