A WOMAN who called in sick to work because she ‘deserved some time for herself’ has spent her day hiding behind drawn curtains like a fugitive.
Junior PR executive Carolyn Ryan said: “I headed out the door for some Christmas shopping before remembering the boss’s PA lives near me and might be off and might see me.
“Then I considered a film, maybe that tennis one with her from La La Land, but remembered my phone would check me in at the cinema and someone might spot it and I don’t know how to turn that off.
“I thought I’d just watch Netflix, but of course I’d gone and shared my password with Darren from the office so he’d know. And he would tell everyone. Because he’s a dick.
“So I ended up sitting at home worrying about work, realising how much work I’d made for myself, wondering if they’d believe I was better or if it was more plausible to take two days, before deciding I couldn’t bear another day like this.
“Then I logged on and did a a little bit of work from home anyway.”
