Yup, my cat is my baby.
No, but I would.
Yep I have! and it was excused!
I haven’t had a pet since I’ve been in my career, but we are getting a dog on monday and I would 100% call in sick if I had to 🙂
Yep! & my old boss had 2 dogs and completely understood 🙂
No, but I wouldn’t think twice about it.
Yes, several times. My dog had Giardia once which was terrible.
Yes I did once.
Yes I have. My Siamese who eats EVERYTHING ate a dinner plate sized hole out of a curtain. Needless to say, he was very sick and almost needed surgery.
But I am 100% honest about it.
But the Fed Gov has a very good work/life balance and supports that kind of thing (within reason) anyways
@ Pitbulllover: How did it turn out??? :((( Poor baby!
Yes, I have. I’d rather take a day off work than come to do a dead pet if they take a turn for the worse in the middle of the day!
I definitely would, but hopefully I would have a job where I could just tell them the truth.
Animals are literally a part of peoples’ families, in many cases. I hope that, some day, most jobs will accept a sick pet as a valid reason for staying home.
Yes, they need us 🙂
I can’t stand seeing my puppy sick, it’s heartbreaking!
Ugh! Yes! My dog had a SUPER bad virus once, and needed to be rushed to the vet, and then supervised for 24 hours. I called my boss in a panic right after I discovered the problem (She’s a really cool). I ended in coming in late that morning, and the guy I was dating at the time stayed with Payton.
Yup, i had to leave work to relieve Darling Husband at the ER vet. My boss gave me a hard time though, I asked her how would she feel if her daughter had a broken leg? I reminded her animals still feel pain and then I left. I quit shortly after.
