Does lying about a gruesome family emergency cross the line of decency to use PTO at work?
No one is going to tell management, but all of our co-workers were kind of disgusted that she would use that as an excuse. Its a small office and we do socially interact with each other outside of work. I explained it to her and said "You kind of used the nuclear option. Its kind of morbid to make it a life or death situation. Everyone was concerned because even though we are work friends, we are still kinda friends."
