Calling in "Dumped"

After you’ve endured a break up, had your heart crushed and your hopes dashed, the last thing you want to do is deal with all the stress of an eight-hour workday.

One very innovative and empathetic Japanese company is now offering its employees up to three days off to deal with the post break-up blues. If this sounds like a radical move, just think about the last time you were dumped. What was the quality of your work like the next day? The money this company will save on Kleenex alone will probably make it worth their while.

While your company may not have the same policy, they likely offer some kind of personal or sick day. Jump on this opportunity to make this day all your own. Book an appointment at the spa, visit a retired relative or friend you haven’t seen in a while or just stay home and rent “Office Space” and turn on the Japanese subtitles. [Telegraph.co.uk]
