If you call in sick for 3 days and use that time to sleep & send out resumes, it'll probably put you closer to that mercy layoff.

Sadly, I've even wished to be in the hospital just for a break. Nothing deadly, but sick enough to be in a few days. Considered licking the curb.

When I started at a big advertising agency 12 years ago, every young single person was dating someone from the agency. Some of them grew into serious relationships and one of them got married. Today, people are scared to hold eye contact with someone of the opposite gender on the chance it makes uncomfortable. Agency hours and life are challenging to mental health as it is. I think it’s wrong to forbid romantic relationships at work. What does everybody else think?
