I decided to take a sick day today. I slept in, took some DayQuil- and find myself working (Sort of. No client work, but writing this post, for example, counts as “work.”)
If I worked out of the house, I’d call in sick and probably spend the day in front of the tv. But since I work from my bedroom, I can’t resist the pull of the MacBook.
It was the same when my kids were little, I rarely got a true sick day because there was always a child or three depending on me. Occasionally Pat would take the day off so I could really rest, but I didn’t take advantage of that option unless I was really, really sick.
If you work for yourself, or have a work from home arrangement, do you really take sick days?
