Today's social dilemma came about because of a conversation I had with a coworker of mine yesterday. She was talking about a party she was invited to over the weekend that she really didn't want to attend. She originally said yes, but she's had a really busy week, and has been stressed and overtired and would really like the time to just chill out. But the friend who's having a party is one of those people that gives you a really hard time if you bail on a party they're having. So she said she was going to tell her friend that she was coming down with something and didn't want to infect everyone at the party. I told I thought that was a bad idea because A) you shouldn't have to lie to a friend (or anyone for that matter), and B) I think when you do that you'll ultimately end up getting sick because it's bad karma. She said I was crazy and asked if I ever called in sick to work when I wasn't sick. And I said NO WAY...would never do that. Again BAD KARMA all around. She said it's a mental health day so it really is like being sick. I said I still couldn't do it. She's fine with doing it with her friend and with work. So what about you? Do you use sickness as a excuse to get out of work or other things even if you're not really sick?? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
