Real Work Conversations: Staying Home

Me: "I really don't want to be here today. Not sure why. Just... bleh."

HR Person: "Not feeling well?"

Me: "Not exactly. Problem is, we get sick days. We don't get ennui days."

HR Person: "I don't think we do, either."


  1. That just reminds me of one of my favorite comics:

    I had a friend in grad school who, whenever I was sick of being a grad student, would tell me "well, you should have made peace with the absurdity of human existence before we left the house!"

  2. I love that comic. Maybe I should just go find a nice, frozen lake.


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
