I believe that it is important to choose family before your job. My father just went into major back surgery. I went to work and my mother was worried and she wanted me there with her. I asked my work if i could get out of work and just not get paid but they said no. I told them i was calling out for the day. I got in trouble over this. Would you have done the same and if not what would of you did?

Yes I would have done the same. Family is much more important than work though many people are not aware of this.
