My parents just put our dog down in the middle of the day, and I’m bawling in the office. I need to lead a few hours of meetings in a bit and have work to do ahead of those but I’m really struggling here.

When I lost my dog I took a full week off work. You have every right to. I bet he/she was your best friend. This is just like any other loss and you have every right to grieve. Sending good vibes your way and so sorry you are going through this.

You’re right on that. He’s been part of the family since I was 10 years old and I really can’t imagine life without him. The house is going to feel so empty. Thank you for your kind words, I appreciate it ❤️

Can you tell your manager you need the day off and push the meetings? You don't have to be detailed, you can just say that there's a family emergency

You won't do your best work today anyway, it's in everyone's best interest

Unfortunately I’m the project lead and we’re submitting our extension this week, so there’s not a lot of opportunity to take time away or push meetings this week. Made it through the day but trying to take the evening for myself at least – already in my pjs

I’m so sorry. It is the absolute worst. I hope they let you take the day, and I wish you the best ♥️

Thank you ❤️ working on at least taking the night, talking to my SM shortly

This qualifies as a family emergency to me.

Could not agree more, and thank you ❤️
