So i do have sick days but everyone in my office including my boss knows of my addiction to hunting and fishing. I would love to call in sick a couple times this week to get out on the water but my boss made the joke on monday… If Matt calls in sick this week we know what that means. I countered with ” Fishing fever is a legitimate illness” I wish they classified them as personal days and not sick days….anyone else in the same boat?

We have sick days and vaca days, but I can use my kids as my sick days.  If they have a “doctors appt” or something, I can use that time.

My boss know’s about my addictions to huntin & fishin, plus he hunt’s a little and fishes alot so we are able to work things out. The people over us think I am about half nuts and a crossbred between a hillbilly and a redneck and being 6’3” 290 lbs they don’t want to get me mad as if I would do anything anyway, to close to retirement to take any chances now.

Well my boss likes to reap the benefits of my fishing and hunting but doesnt get outdoors much. People think I am wacky bc i dont use my pto on christmas and thanksgiving. If i had kids i would totally be using them as a way to get off work and go fishing…

I always get the boss that has one of the three addictions. He is either a fisherman, hunter or golfer…........my career goals include finding a boss that has a passion for all three.
