Well I called in. I mean I'm still getting paid, but I feel a little guilty because I hate lying. I was so anxious on the phone though that I hung up before even saying goodbye or even allowed the guy on the other end of the line say goodbye. There was a weird pause and I thought it was the end of the conversation. Ugh, phone call fail. But whatever. It's over and now I can get on with my day. It's not like I'm not doing anything today. I have a list to tackle before I go away for the weekend.Anxious. Debating on going to work or calling in "sick". I don't want to be *that* person but I also don't want to even bother going to work today. So yesterday and today are down days for maintenance in the building. To make up for the downtime, the company organized a very high-school-esque "field day" event outside. Even down to putting people on teams from different departments. Games are played competitively to earn points and there's food offered of course. It's supposed to be "fun", but it literally sounds like torture to me. No amount of Prozac can even get me to enjoy something like that.
If I choose to go to work and not attend, I'm left sitting in a lab with barely anything to do for 8 hours. My online courses for work are caught up, cleaning tasks are done, the only things that would be left to do are random sample tests and inventories. And there's another coworker that will be there this afternoon to do all that. So I feel like it's a lose-lose situation with work today.
