    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.

    I understand it must be frustrating that your husband has to stay at work later today because someone else called in sick. I hate it when my husband has to work late too.

    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?

    I'm with you!! If you have children you take them with you. I didn't give birth to then palm them of to grandparents etc. my parents have been married for 36 years and never been anywhere without their children. All bull**** when ppl say you need time away without children to revive marriage/reconnect... I know couples who went away regularly without their kids and their divorced now.... I guess their reconnection didn't connect

    LOL yeah it's just so evil and wrong to leave your child/ren with their loving kind grandparents for a few nights, poor kids getting spoilt and having a change of scenery with people who love them!

    36 years hey... So do you still go away with them? Or they don't go away because it would mean leaving you?

    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.

    Lol that actually made me laugh. They got through all their children being old enough without a holiday alone. That's what I meant that as children we always went on holidays with them. I didn't think it was such a big deal...

    Lol.

    I didn't give birth to my children to become some kind of martyr.


    It's totally ok if you want to live your life without spending a second away from your children, but some of us do like to have some kind of identity away from parenting
