On Sunday I get an email from my HR guy saying my boss's father-in-law died after a "heroic" battle with cancer. Monday, as I'm getting ready to leave, a partner comes into my office and says "you should go tomorrow" and I'm like "go to what?" and he says, "the funeral." Really? It's about a 40 minute drive from work - is that completely insane or is it just me? I am still in shock over this - I wouldn't go 1000 times out of 1000. I didn't even consider it for a second. It's sad and everything but does this mean that I have to go to Cousin Joe's or Great Aunt Bertha's funeral too? I just don't get it.
