    I wouldn't be bothered. My dp did this recently and I didn't bat an eyelid, although the kids were with their mother so maybe this changes it.
    I also had a sickie from stress recently and didn't tell dp until later that day when he got home.
    I think i secretly felt guilty and didn't want anyone questioning my reasonings, not that he would but I wanted to watch daytime tv and eat chocolate in my pjs, snuggling the dog guilt free!

    Default DH not telling me he had a sick day.

    I would be gobsmacked if my hubby took a sickie and didn't tell me! It just wouldn't happen in our relationship.

    I think if he was being truly secretive he would have rocked up home at his usual time in suit and tie....

    I'd be annoyed...as it would mean he had lied to me (we im every morning when i get up...so it would be him misleading me).

    The thing is...even if having a mental health day, when you have kids...you need to consider that everyone might need one. Even if it meant he grabbed dinner while he was at the shops or you could plan an appointment or (what Dh and i often do) take a kid each and make everyones day easier.

    It's about communication...so yeah, i'd be a bit unhappy.

    Whey hubby chucks a sickie he has to help with Belle. I have to be mum when I'm sick so he has to play dad if he's not working

    Unless he's feral sick then I lock him in the bedroom!

    I probably wouldn't be angry... I'd just be baffled that he didn't tell me but that's because DH always tells me if he's thinking of having a day off, just as I would.

    It's not really a 'respect' thing as such for us, we just literally wouldn't comprehend not mentioning it.
    That doesn't make us any better than anyone else, just means we don't sneak 'me days' often enough I reckon hahahaha!
