Everyone has it. Some people thrive on it. But no employers get excited about it.

It is personal drama! Understandably, life happens. Relatives die. Kids get sick. Cars break down. People use their paid time off in a variety of ways, and life keeps happening, even when we are busy making other plans. What I can tell you is this: if you are a drama magnet, you will not endear  yourself to your boss. 

If you are chronically missing work, sleeping in, and making excuses, you are not going to get promoted. Similarly, if you are a chronic gossip, you won't be making a whole lot of friends.  

Leave the drama to the performing arts and get your job done at work. You may even get a raise!

What happens when your own BOSS is the gossip girl and shares all the drama? Not a good situation to be in!

At that point, just be polite and listen. He/she signs your timecard and appoves your pto.
