I fired myself once, too.  My employees put me in front of a mirror and told me to hire myself back because there was no way they wanted to put up with the people I had to.  Ownership it's a strange and marvelous thing.

Yes , when the stress rises , I need a mental health break to reset my focus .  The stress can cause disorganization in my mind .

'Mental Health Day' - taking off due to the questionable mental health of colleagues.

Every work day for me is a mental health day, because I have to put up with a lot of stupid people (I actually had to put up a label saying "Be Nice", for my own benefit).

I've had a few of them, compliments of the corporation I was working for at the time.

We didn't get "mental health days", but one time my boss had a hissy fit with me on the phone .. because he was angry at a few of my coworkers who weren't in the office to receive his ire, I gave myself a mental health break! I took a long walk all the way down to Battery Park (Manhattan), and took a ride on the ferry to Staten Island & back, then took the subway back to my office! I felt a lot better, and my boss did call back & appologize!

We get three personal leave days a year.  Can take them for anything.

Nah. But then I've always worked for myself. I did fire myself once. Long story. Smiley Happy
