Personally I don't have sick days. I've run my body into the ground with two jobs and needed to take off today to just sleep or I would have been hospitalized for exhaustion. I lose all my pay for today. Sick days would be great if they existed for everyone.

There's a big difference between work and school sweetie... But, you might not have a job yet, so school is the closest you can relate. I'm not gonna thumb up, or down... You'll understand one day.

While what you're saying has truth to it, #11, that sounded super condescending. Also, you don't know what they are going through and school might be a much more stressful environment for them than you are giving credit for. My little sister had to drop out of high school for the sake of her mental health. (She's doing better now, got her GED and going to college)

@24: I understand what you're saying, but I think 11 is speaking about more than just stress. School doesn't have the same kind of consequences that a job has.

No, I understand. I just think she could have said it in a way that isn't condescending like that. You totally tune that stuff out as a teen when someone is talking down to you. It's just not very considerate.
