So today I am faced with a quandary. Do I get a pass on sick days, when I’m home from the office? Paid Time Off (PTO) and vacations count as holidays (unless it’s a stay-cation), so I do get to be free from my posting requirements. But sick, that hasn’t been decided yet.
I think it comes down to the Work From Home (WFH) model or the too sick to really sit up and function model. Today is a precaution, my throat was scratchy so I opted to WFH. I’m obviously up enough to sit up at the computer and knock out some of the stuff I have to do – especially as I am on a deadline. So it’s enough to require a post at some point. Provided I am not overwhelmed by work.
That’s another case, the real world job. There are rare times where I will be so heads down on a project that I don’t know if I will have the bandwidth to be here. Generally my job is a lot of “hurry up and wait” time, so I should almost always be able to squeak something in, but if I’m not I have to acknowledge that the real work has to come first.
So today I’m going to get the majority of my work done for the day, then check back and see if I can contribute here. It is a WFH sick day, with a lot of my work-plate. Fingers crossed!
