Hell yeah. Take a mental health day. Your job can eat it you need to take care of yourself.

I commuted 120 miles a day for years. That can wear you out.

I hate how we actually have to explain the day we can’t go to work.

Why don’t they explain why in hell we have to go to work almost everyday?

Take mental health days. Your job (or boss) doesn't care if you live or die.

Gotta do what u can no worries and its friday

I get that excuse a lot. That and food poisoning. I didn’t think that as an adult that other adults would explain their bowel movements to me to get out of work but they do.

Get to work slacker

Usually if do something like that my car does break down lol with the cost of gas probably save money staying home if it's only 3hr

You need a mental break. My job has a company party today and I decided to take the rest of the day off instead of going.
scorpiolovedeep · 46-50, M
I think it is important to take a mini break sometimes when we have too much on our plate …

Well done

Half days like that are a waste of time and energy. I could not agree with you more.
TurtlePink · 22-25, F
Well, at least you’re here with us where you’re safe 🤗🤗 I hope you get to feeling better
You're lucky. My work would be like "welp, take a cab or bus" haha

Sometimes it's just necessary. 🤷🏻 Have a nice day off. 😊
JimboSaturn · 51-55, M
I approve of your decision :P
I won't tell :) Enjoy some YouTime!
CreepzillaInManila · 31-35, MVIP
🤣😂My bad habits are rubbing off on you
Degbeme · 61-69, M
I don`t blame you. ;)
Understandable 🤙

To be on the safe side you should put a little smudge of grease on your cheek when you go to work on Monday and tell everybody you spent the weekend fixing your car. Cheers and happy weekend!

3 hrs? Ya thas pethetic. Half of the money u earn will prob go on gas. Not worth it
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F

Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
@nightjourney we are usually super busy. It’s just this week is slow
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
not to sound like your conscience but did you have a sense of guilt over what you did and the lie you told your boss [jenny1234]
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
@smiler2012 briefly. Lasted about 3.5 seconds
Ok, good. Make the most of it and stay away from befriending HR deptt fellows.
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F

Why would you only be working for 3 hours when you got there?[/c]
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
@swirlie because Fridays sept through June I only work 3 hours and I have Fridays off July and august. It’s cuz I have a fantastic boss who decided that’s the way it should be
Unlearn · 36-40, M
3 hours? What kinda work is that?
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
@Unlearn I’m a law clerk and bookkeeper. Only Fridays are 3 hours. The rest of the week is hard 10-4
pedrohedgerow · 61-69, M
With all my heart,total respect to you 🥂👍🤗
Quetzalcoatlus · 46-50, M
3 hours? Not worth your time
Whatsinaname · 31-35, M
Good for you.
Let's have some beers
MrNightSky · 41-45, M

MarineBob · 56-60, M

LunarOrbit · 56-60, M
