04:41 pm - It's hard to begin your week on Hump Day.
Somebody in another cubicle: Achoo!
Girl in the next cubicle: Bless that person.
Me: No, I think that was ________. He doesn't really deserve it.
Girl in the next cubicle: Oh. Into the flames with him then.
Coversations like this are one of two things keeping me sane at work today. Apparently two days off constitutes almost a week's worth of accumulated work. I'm not sure how that works out mathematically. The other thing keeping me sane is a fax that was addressed to the attention of the "Disappeared Evolution" Department. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to read "Dispute Resolution," and am curious as to the day-to-day business of a bank that offers disappeared evolution services.

Anyway, I'm back at work and feeling much better, thanks. I was probably (more or less) recovered by yesterday afternoon and I felt a little guilty about taking the whole day off, but I don't feel so bad about it now. We used to have separate sick time, vacation time, and personal days, but these were consolidated into a bank of "paid time off" on the first of this year. Under the current rules I can carry up to 80 hours of unused PTO over to the next year.

My job requires me (and you probably already know since I mention it on an annual basis) to take five consecutive days off. Having adjusted my PTO bank for the last two days of absence, I see that I can take twice that and still have more PTO than I can carry over. I don't feel too bad about taking the Mental Health Day now.
Current Mood: crazyridiculously busy
Current Music: Burt's Whizzer -- I Put My Stock in the Faith Truck

I am happy that you are feeling better! I really hope I don't catch whatever this is.

Me too. I talked to a few other people who are sick, and we all got sick on or around the same day, so I think I'm off the hook for spreading it.

One of the many reasons I don't want to be a contractor forever.

I don't see what geneology has to do with my PTO.

You guys really only read about the cool parts. You don't hear about the guy who hides my work on a daily basis because he knows my boss won't follow through with her threat of reprimanding him.

We have a bigger image which did scan, but not for you. I'll try to get Tick to post it when he gets home but for now I'll try to access the network and post it.
