Have You Lied to Your Employer About Being Sick This Winter?

Finding time to take a vacation can be a challenge when you're caught up in the grind of the nine to five. In fact, 34 percent of SavvySugar readers only took five to 10 vacation days in 2009, followed by 29 percent who jetted out of the workplace for 10 days and another 29 percent of you who used up 10 to 20 days. Not taking time out can lead to burn out — and sickness — quick. Has the daily grind or madness of the holiday season prompted you to fudge about being sick this Winter?

I don't have to worry about calling in anymore. But yes, I have done it before in the past. Everyone needs a little break from work. Although I would suggest that you don't call in TOO often.
