I know Americans are never going to be accused of taking TOO MANY vacation days . . . but damn, when your coworkers actually do take a day off, don't you kinda HATE them for it?
A new survey asked people what happens when one of their coworkers takes a day off and, clearly, a lot of companies don't have a good plan in place . . .
1. 53% of people say it makes their day more stressful.
2. 41% say they have to do extra work to cover for their coworker who's out . . . without any extra pay, obviously.
3. 40% say the work they're covering doesn't always get done WELL.
4. And 37% have grown to RESENT a coworker because of all the times they've had to cover for them.
The survey also found 56% of people feel GUILTY about taking time off and having someone cover for them . . . and 21% say the person who covers for them usually makes less money than them.
