Well its a bit hard to prove a broken thumb. All you need to do is wrap a bandage around it, and fashion a splint. I have double jointed fingers anyway so they look pretty broken to begin with. At casualty in this country, the best they will do for you is wrap a bandage and a stick on it and tell you to try not to bend it.

Even absences of short notices, requires that we text or inform our boss and the HR about it. Usually, i would take emergency leaves, when i am dizzy , diarrhea or is injured. I have not any weird excuses so far. As much as possible i don't want to consume my Service incentive leave because we get paid for it on the first month of the next year when we didn't use it.
