Camping On The Organ Trail

| Working | April 7, 2017

(My coworker was recently out for a little more than a week on emergency medical leave. He’s been back for about two weeks and is discussing plans to go camping. He has a good sense of humor so everybody in the department has been teasing him about being lazy and taking a week off just because he had appendicitis.)

Coworker: “Yeah, I’m taking four days off to go camping in three weeks.”

Me: *jokingly* “You’re taking MORE days off? You just took a week off without any warning. Why should you get even more time off?”

Coworker: *jokingly* “My appendix EXPLODED! I think that deserves some sympathy.”

Me: “Excuses, excuses.”

(We both had a good chuckle and got back to work. At least this time he’s made sure his work is taken care of while he’s gone instead of the rest of scrambling to get his shift covered.)
