I was very unwell yesterday, I had a 24 hour tummy bug, I was literally vomiting from 3.30 a.m until 5.30 p.m, so DH took the day off work to look after the baby because obviously I couldn't. When DH phoned in work to explain what was happening, he got no sympathy, his boss actually said he was 'dissapointed' and said things like :'This is no way to run a business, I expected better.' I'm so mad about this! Last time DH took time off work was after I had our baby, and he was off for two weeks after, 2 days after I gave birth his boss was phoning asking him to go in because there was so much work to do, and because DH said NO (I was having trouble feeding so had to stay in hospital) his boss gave the same speech, saying that he felt 'let down'. I'm sooo mad about this! Why on earth should he be made to feel guilty about taking care of me and our baby? His boss literally drops anything if something happens to his grandchildren, so I think he should be a little more understanding. Anyone agree? Or is this the way bosses are supposed to be now?
