A sampling of communications from my employer.
--After I was diagnosed with stomach cancer, and emailed to make arrangements for someone to fill in for me, from one of the firm's owners: "You shouldn't be worrying about work now. Why don't you call us when you're up to it?"
--After I was undiagnosed with stomach cancer, from the other owner: "The next time you want some time off to visit family in Chicago, a less elaborate excuse is needed."
--From the office manager, a couple of days ago: "Your paid-time-off ran out at the end of May, but we decided to keep paying you anyway."
