I can't take it anymore. If my coworker sends me ONE more sob story email about why she is not coming into work I will smack her. Or possible shoot a cannon in her general direction...
Here is the context of today's email. Granted we are experiencing cold weather and -20 wind chills blah blah blah but you live in this weather and you chose to live an hour away from where you work. I have no sympathy.
I just wanted to let you know that I will be staying at home today again. I just cannot see it being a good idea taking Thor out in this weather to ride in the vehicle for about 1 to 1 ½ hours in this weather. To switch to another vehicle and drive 30 more minutes. I am truly sorry about this; if it was just husband & I we would have no problems driving but if it is all of us I just don’t see it being a good idea. Of course I will be working from home so if you need me call or email
This is yesterday's
I am sorry but because of the cold weather I am just staying home with Thor. I cannot see putting him at risk out in this weather. I will work from home as much as possible. If you need me please call and again sorry.
It's not as if she drives a convertable with the top down 24/7 she drives an effing minivan. Heat the stupid car up and he won't even know what's going on! I hate people.
My theory? She knows she's being a wimp and that's why she apologizes so much. Bunch of crap this is.
I replied to her email and said: Next time you intend to send an email like this I shall require you insert violin music.
I guess that's why I always receive a DO (Development Opportunity) on my PMD in the area of interpersonal skills......
