Could You Stick Around?
This is a story about a dog owner whose pet was going through some health problems. In the middle of their shift, they told their boss that they had to take their dog to the vet. Now, any reasonable person would let them go because dogs are a part of the family, too, y’know.
But this person’s boss was no ordinary person! They didn’t let the OP go, and they expected them to stick around until the evening shift was over. The OP had to choose between family and employment, and they did what anyone in their position would do.
