Everything also baby
I’m seriously so tired of people who constantly use their baby as an excuse during work.
Now before anyone comes after me and say “I’m not understanding” or “you wait until you become a parent”, having a baby was YOUR choice and not having a baby is also MY choice. I don’t see why I have to be penalised for your choice or why I have to be more “considerate” of you because of a choice YOU made.
Having and not having a baby comes with both pros and cons, and just because I don’t have a baby, doesn’t mean I need to absorb the cons of someone who has one.
At work I let parents take the school holidays off as I know parents are busy prepping kids back for School or that is the only time they can go overseas with their children.
Our office operationally cannot close during last week of the year either. That is the compromise I am willing to make as I know how stressful it is to prep kids back to school and yes, I feel that it is quite generous as if given the option, I would like to take the last week off to unwind.
I can tolerate up to the point where a child falls sick and needs their parent to care for them because everyone falls sicks and it’s also not a weekly occurrence.
The one thing I cannot stand, is when people end up using their babies as excuse to “evade” work or under the guise of staying home or even get people to do things for them. Then they proceed to ask other people to wipe up their backside and do things for them because they have a “baby”. I consider baby and children a part of personal life, and it if it affects your competency to do work, then maybe you’re a lousy worker.
Lord can’t wait to leave this shitty company after I get my bonus for the FY *rolls eyes*
