Bored & Depressed With Work?

A survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers.has revealed that one in three UK workers admits having lied to take sick leave, and the majority said they did so because they were bored and depressed with work. Read the full report here.

I cannot understand what is achieved by the negative action of pulling a sickie, there is the short term boost by having the day off work, but the boring job is still there the next day.  If someone is so bored and depressed by their job then they need to take positive action and get a different job that will challenge them. The problem is that far too many people in the UK today are happy to settle for less than the best, to go with the flow, or are too lazy to work at all. If that is the path that you choose for your life then pity you.
