I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
During these unimaginable times, I am having a painful time trying to focus on CPA studies, work, and sleep due to this relentless fear of COVI -19. I reside in a “hot spot” state where the positive cases keep rising. To make matters worse, I live with an help care for an immune-compromised sibling. Today I sent a text (explain later on why I sent a text) to my supervisor asking if I could work from home. I have a computer, access to email and the internet. I received a no! No because there are duties that require me to be present, and as the staff accountant which handles the g/l, I am “essential” and needed. I am 1 of 2 accountants at this small company. A year ago I made a post of how awful this person is.
I replied by stating that I do NOT feel comfortable risking my health and the health of my loved homes at home. That said, I will not be coming in to work. This person did not reply at all! I did not get a: “ok, I understand your hesitation” or “Let’s wait 2 weeks for things to calm down”. Or let me gain you remote access to the g/l system so you can reconcile the accounts. Nothing at all!
Why didn’t I call? I opted to text because this person likes to argue and dismiss everything one says. My nerves are uneasy at the moment, So that why I avoided the phone.
All that said, was there anything I could have done or said differently? I am very concerned about my health and easily ill sibling. These are legit reasons to not come in? They all know I have a delicate situation at home. Before this covid 19 ordeal, my brother was hospitalized from Dec 2019 to January 2020. I did not take a day off; I would work and leave for the hospital after work. They know he’s been ill in the past.
