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!
