Depends if you’re sick or not

Yes. Just say you’re taking PTO. You’re not skipping school, you’re taking a day off

If you are sick you are sick. Stay home, rest and sweat it out. No point in trying to force yourself the work as it generally causes more issues down the line for your health.

Omg be sick any day of the week honestly.

Not if you’re at EY

You can take any day off you want! We are all adults so just be professional and responsible about it. If it's something you're planning to do, make sure you're not leaving your team in a tough position with a hard deadline or something like that.

My manager know that probability me getting sick on Friday is close to 1 and that on other days is close to 0. Did some solid expectation setting in past 😎

Be careful I’ve heard that managers can read your mind

Onsite interviews are virtual now...u can be OOO for a few hours 😜

My husband and I get along great on the weekends - we are amazing cohosts, we love to go out together, we find eachother compelling and charming.

I took my first sick day at my new job. I am back today now some people are barely talking to me. Barely anyone asked if I am doing better. I find it a bit strange.

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have.

At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
