some douche at dh's work called in sick today.
This douche's wife told me a while back, they want to go away this wekend and want the extra day so her dh is calling in sick fri morning.
i asked why doesnt he just ask for it off and she said why? he wont get paid for it! money hungry selfish ********.
DH is now doing all of this douches work today.....he will be at work even later than normal. Thankyou very much for being selfish and only think about you.
DH always puts in for days he needs/wants off. It has to be approved by his boss and if approved, he gets leave without pay. i fell this is the right thing to do esp if you want a day off for a weekend away.
They are not even taking their DD with them!!!! leaving her for 4 nights with the inlaws! shes all of 2.5yrs old!!!
sheesh some people are crap.

But why are you venting that this colleague is not taking his daughter on their weekend away? Just curious, I believe it's good for parents to get away by themselves every now and again. But maybe you think they should wait until their daughter is older?

Yes it is a generalisation. I'm not saying a night into town or a dinner, that's nice every now and then (and yes grandparents love it) I'm saying I know couples who constantly leave their kids weekends/days and long holidays overseas to have a fun, enjoyable holiday. What about the kids? Why have them if you don't enjoy them with you on these holidays? Then they use the whole "time to reconnect" excuse to not feel guilty. At the end of the day it's only my opinion. Each to their own.
