Well she is either rich enough to not have to work or a complete idiot.
I have turned down chances at moving the site I work on and a bit of extra money because I know that the security contract because I know the contract will be here for another good few years baring any unforeseen circumstances.

Re: Mother loses job to cheer on son and husbandís Little League World Series run

Must not have been a very good job, considering. I can think of twice being in a similiar situation and both times choosing to instead participate in my kid's sports. Ironically, one of the employers had solicited me earlier to sponsor a team, then had issues when I didn't want to work unscheduled, voluntary overtime in order to coach the team.

Anyway, neither job was that spectacular and readily replaceable in the economic climate at the time, so I never regretted my decisions and I still see some of the kids, now in their twenties, and parents from those teams, and I'm glad I didn't let 'em down.

Of course, with the way things are today, I probably wouldn't be so careless as to leave a job.

I would have called in sick, went to my doctor and got a doctors note.

And now the back story...
After using all her paid time off and sick days, and coming in later 3 of 5 days a week, mom pushed out of her job after requesting more time off....
Sorry guys, the way people lie to my face in business nowadays, I can hardly believe anything anymore.

yeah, that's certainly a different version ... she abused the system a little bit.

Clearly the job wasn't important to her.
