I really don't care why you're taking time off work. If it affects me, it's my business. The time off, not the reason why. Don't care. But hey, man, if I have to work extra hours or do extra work because you're not here, that's most definitely my business. We've all got our shit. If you have issues and have to miss a bunch of work, maybe take a job where your absence won't negatively effect your coworkers. If you're just going through a rough patch, I'm there for you and will pick up the slack. If it's a lifestyle? No. Please. I have enough shit of my own and I don't need your shit compounding my shit, not long-term. I really try to keep my shit to a minimum. I'm not without compassion but it goes both ways.
