A conversation started the other day where the person said they called their boss to tell him their dog had died and he would need a few days off. The guy really loved his dog and was taling the passing of his dog very hard.
He was being genuine and honest when he told his Boss he needed a few days to recompose himself.
I've had pets all my life and am a huge animal lover but I think a few days to grieve for your dog is a little much.
He has the right to ask for personal time but I told him he shouldn't have given the reason that his dog had died.
He said his Boss didn't understand and reluctantly granted the days but now treats him strangely.
I agree with the Boss; a grown man asking for 2-3 days to grieve for a dog makes that person look like they have emotional problems.
