This week I've been making all my doctor's appointments like crazy, hoping to squeeze everything in before I get a job, since employers hate their employees for seeing a damn doctor, because well....it's America.

So far, I am making appointments to see the following doctors:

PCP
Chiropractor
Dermatologist
Ophthalmologist
Optometrist

And possibly an ear doctor to clean out my ears.

No, employers do not hate their employees for seeing a doctor. But when you made your appointments in the way you did at your last employer, then yeah.

You've had 3 months , so, of course, employers should expect you to work during all working hours, every single day. This should have been taken care of, completely, 2 months ago.

I have to ask: if his health problems are that bad, why is he working? He said before that his health/doctor appointments absolutely cannot wait.

Geez if this is you at 31, at 70, will anything work?


BTW, employers I have had are fine with infrequent doctor appointments, but I didn't take time off for cable, and I got my dentists stuff in before and after office hours. Most of them start earlier than offices for that reason. And, of course, I do not text at work except at lunch.


So make sure once employed again to be Mr. Reliable..always there for working hours as much as everyone at the company.

This. I have to wonder why a 31 year old needs so much specialized care routinely.

This. And don't just up and leave. Request the time off ahead of time. Otherwise it looks as if you are just walking off the job.

Ah yes, I see the attitude has not changed. Therefore, once hired, don't expect the outcome to be much different. A different place...maybe a few different pros and cons as time goes on....but the end result will be you finding fault in the locale or the job or the people or...........& you'll be on to the next job hunt. Because once again, this won't be on you.
