How Often Do You Show Up For Work Worn Out?

If you feel a little sluggish today thanks to too much cheese dip, beer, and revelry, you certainly aren't alone. The Monday after Super Bowl Sunday is a notoriously low attendance day in corporate America. In fact, there's even a coalition of people who want to make the day a national holiday.

I kept it low key yesterday, but I will admit I occasionally come to work after a birthday party, fancy dinner, or even a girls' night feeling a little less than chipper — and I certainly had my fair share of wild nights earlier in my career. How often do you show up for work hungover or completely wiped out (say from a crying baby), or do you stay home when you're worn out?

More often than I would like. I am not a good sleeper.

Wish there was another options: Rarely, I try to keep it low-key on weeknights.

I've definitely changed my ways - in my 20s I didn't care a lot about sleep so I probably went into work a little beat up more often than not. Now I'm the exact opposite and I try to be in bed by 10pm.

I try to keep things lowkey, but I sometimes I don't sleep well the night before work and I wake up kind of groggy. I just make sure I drink plenty of caffeine and suck it up.
