    My favorite's mastitis.  Can't really put my finger on why, but I'm definitely going to miss a few days due to that next week.

    Was a bit confused at first when I saw "Compassionate" - I suppose that could be considered a problem among upper management.
    Naturally, a dictionary then revealed to me the proper meaning. Damn it, options actually making sense.

    When I see drop downs like that, I always look at the source to see what kind of <select> it is. If it's just plain text options (not ID numbers), you can likely enter your own names using an editor (Firebug, for instance).

    Change it to <option value="You can't legally ask these questions"> and submit it.

     Genital Warts are a very unfortunate affliction. When you have a flare up, you may as well be out because someone set your genitals on fire, and you are suffering 3rd degree burns.

    I rather like that this is the form that is for future leaves to be scheduled/approved, not just reporting leaves in general...

     Me:  I need all of next week off.  Monday I plan to be be assaulted, and then I'll have appendicitis Tuesday through Thursday, and finish with manic depression on Friday.

     Boss:  Well, I can approve the assault and the manic depression, but we need you here to meet with clients on Tuesday and Wednesday, so you can only have one day of appendicitis.

    So....

     If I shot myself in the eye with a flooring nailer, would that be:

    Nail Problems
    Visual Disturbance / Loss

    Wound
    Head Injury
    or
    Pain.

    (And I suppose if I was in jail for doing the same thing to Rosie O'Donnell it would be "Public Service"?)

    The issue I see here, and possibly "the real WTF", is that I'm pretty sure it's illegal to ask why someone needs to take sick leave in the first place.

    "Detachment from Reality"

     

    Are they just waiting for some dumbass to actually select this so they can terminate them?  

     

     Disassociative episodes actually occurs as a medical condition, usually in people with anxiety/depression.  It causes you to be in a dream-like state, with your thoughts detached from your actions.

     Of course, if you're experiencing disassociation, you're probably not capable of requesting off.  You'll be internally screaming at yourself to click submit, but for some reason your body just keeps trying to cover up the fact that you're back in school in only your boxers.

    TRWTF is that it's a combo box and not a multi-select list. What if I have both Eustachian Salpingitis and Nail Problems?

    "Dissociative".  You're talking about depersonalization disorders which are only really a subset of dissociative disorders.  Also, "detachment from reality" is broad enough it can encompass other diagnoses.

    This informative and educational post is exactly the kind of trolling I've come to expect from you and those of your ilk.  I am deeply personally offended, and I call upon the powers of Jeff to have you banished to the pit of banned-ness.  Have you written any books we could burn?

     

    Your utterly arbitrary convention is the opposite of my utterly arbitrary convention! Get out of here!

    It's also a bit of a slap-in-the-face: "We don't think it's a real illness so we'll make you pick this cutesy, non-medical name. Now if you'll excuse me, I have three people with Schizophrenia to deal with..."

    Just one.  It's called The Koran.  Go burn some copies.  Very publicly.

    I never really took it that way at all.  "Detachment from reality" actually sounds a little bit more terrifying than something clinical like "dissociative" or "schizophrenic".

     I laughed so hard my stomach hurts.  Great stuff.

     I like 'vertigo'.  "Sorry, I'm feeling a little scared of heights today, I can't come in..."

    "Amputation of Toe" ... Brilliant!

    Did they just copy the most recent 100 illnesses from some hospital list?
