Good to play with intrusions, but if everyone may have these skills developed.

Meanwhile, having a good boss is a very good luck

If I have to make a decision between family and work, family wins every time. I can usually make up the work interruptions but the employer has to be flexible.

Very well stated, Steve. Thank you for sharing that and confirming to others (and me) that work is not #1 on the totem pole. Allow me to share my priority list ... #1. Cultivate my relationship with the Lord, #2. Cultivate my relationship with my wife, #3. Cultivate my relationship with my children, #4. Cultivate relationships with extended family and friends ... notice that all of my priority items are directly related to relationships. Work is merely a vehicle that provides both financial means and opportunity to provide for my family and help others who are not as blessed as I.

Work is work, but in a lot of ways, it's not like real life.

One of the things I like about my job is that I can go to my boss and say "Family emergency.." tell him what it is and I can leave that moment. The job has pushed me beyond my patience on many items, but when I had to leave at a moments notice two times on my job and leave for two weeks at a time and they allowed me to do that. There was no hemming or hawing, just "Go ahead." Of course my laptop went with me, I checked my emails and solved issues as they came up, and had my phone with me.

What you say says a ton about your company!

Compassion is hard if not darn near impossible to find at times. You are luck to have found it!

And honesty of this caliber is priceless.

Thanks!

Very true but at its best work is progressing society. So working hard and providing for your family may not be completely contradictory.

But yes chose your battles progressing society is not any one person's responsibility

"My boss was very supportive and understood I might cancel the trip if my family needed me"

If only the other 99% of the world worked this way.

I have known many in the past that have claimed this "family emergency" only to find them out on the golf course later that day. SO BUSTED! So, in some ways I can understand managment's skeptical attitude on this at times. It can and does get abused. Most of those people are long gone though, but we get their replacements in all the time!
