I canceled my 1 on 1 with my manager today to go surfing due to 'food poisoning.' Obviously I did not have food poisoning but I was dying to go surfing since the conditions were good. (And good surf days have been far and few in between). As a recent college grad, this is the first time I have faked a sickness on the job but I also feel they're important to survive the 9-5 grind for the long haul. And I'm still going to hit my number this month like I always do.
I honestly feel like doing that today was me prioritizing myself and my mental health. I also had a flippin' amazing time surfing too.
Do you sales savages pull the sick card, and if so.. how often?
