For over 30 years I worked in the accounting field, which is a very stressful, sometimes frustrating and highly responsible position. Some days (not often) I just had to get away from it and take a personal holiday to rejuvenate and restore my sanity. So, since I have very sensitive sinuses, I knew that if I rubbed or scratched my forehead too hard, I would sneeze. After several sneezes and getting stuffy sinuses, I would tell my boss I had to go home and rest. Have you ever "faked it" when needing a day of rest - or were you just outright honest and told the truth?

It is hard on a short staff when someone takes off. The only times I would not "fake it" was during month-end or year-end close. Thanks for contributing to this Q&A.
That is a great thing for a company to do for their employees, Jackie. Most of the companies I worked for were not so considerate.
Thanks for contributing to this Q&, Marie.
I can understand the "bow out". I had to wait till I retired to bring this up. LOL
Fair enough - I so understand that, Lois. Congratulations on your 20 years there.
Yep, those sneezes always worked. You have a good point on the Monday morning call in instead of Fridays.
That is a way to be.
