Is a sick chicken an excuse for a hygienist to be late?

As a practical joke, I sent the text message pictured below to my boss on Thursday morning.  I didn’t expect the response I received.  He was very understanding and compassionate.  I was expecting something more like, “Really?” or “Huh?” or “Ok” or “Are you messing with me bro?”  We do have two chickens (and 1 large dog and 3 cats) that we consider part of the family, but they are perfectly healthy, no heart problems.  Would your boss be this compassionate and understanding if you had a sick chicken?

Our two chickens. The chicken on the left is a Turken breed (nothing to do with turkeys), so her neck is supposed to look like that.

  1. Sounds like you have a great employer! Truly something to be grateful for. If only all employers treated their employees with such caring concern.

    Your chickens are cute. :)
