Absent at work?
December 5, 2008 7:52am CST
Hi guys, do you sometimes feel like not going to work because you have your own things to do for pleasure? I actually didn't go to work today, just because I enjoyed making my own website and wanted to spend more time on the internet. I haven't even managed to finish it yet as I want to put more contents on it I hope it works, I really felt the pressure sometimes getting up early just to go to work and not even have enough time for my own pleasures at home. Have you ever absent from work even you are well?

hi lovely! when i was working in the office, i seldom was absent from work. i enjoyed going to work everyday. even when we had to stay late because of overtime work (even without overtime pay), i always made sure to report the next day. sometimes, even if i am sick, i try to come in the next day. but if i can't really help it, then i would stay home and rest. i dunno, i was just so loyal at my last job, where i stayed for 6 years. how i am working freelance and just as passionate. hehe i have to. at least, all that i earn here goes to me. hehe take care and God bless you!

Hi spoiled, thanks for sharing! That's good that you enjoy going to work and you're loyal to it. Before I used to enjoy going to work but not on this recent job I have. I am pressured not just because of my shifts but because of the people I am working with as well, so sometimes when I don't feel like going to work I had to make an excuse. Have a nice day.

I am not working now, but when I was, I rarely took days off from work. Every once in awhile, I felt that I needed a mental health day and would take off. I would usually use the day just to relax at home, or if I had something I needed to do and couldn't do it because of working I would do it. It is good to take a break from work every now and then.

Yes, you're right, it's good to take a break from work every now and then. And that's the thing the pressured me so much because I don't usually get enough time from work because I work both shifts night and day when I am on a dayshift today, the next day I am on a nightshift my shifts are really stressing me. And that's why I don't enjoy going to work.

I could never do that as I worked just down the road from where I worked and someone would pop in to see how you were ,everbody worked there.Mind you if you did have a day of sick you were marched to the office to explain yourself,Why were you ill, could you have prevented it,and whats going to happen next time,and could you give more notice of being sick.I packed the job up in the end and they wanted to know why,think about it were my words as I walked out!!!!!!!!!
