I'm beginning to get a bit concerned about keeping my job. Lately I've been late a bit and I don't know what I can do. Things are generally better than they have been but I still get days where out of the blue I just can't get off the toilet in the mornings. I have to drive for 20 - 25 mins for work and I just can't always leave the house when I should. Partly because if I'm having a bad day I like to know I've finished as much as I can before I get in the car. How many employers are really that supportive. I have a great boss and she has been very understanding but I think she's even beginning to get a bit fed up with the same excuse after years. I'm just wondering what are the options when you really can't help being late. I've tried getting up earlier but it dosen't make any difference. It starts when it wants to. I'm just getting a bit worried about this now. I take immodium as soon as I get out of bed, but it never works quick enough. I don't know what I should do. If I know I'm getting late, then I get stressed and that makes things worse for the whole day. Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I get a note from my doctor explaining the situation for my boss? Does anyone have any suggestions with how they cope with always being late. I hate the fact that probably all my employers think of me is that I am always late and so they think I'm lazy, unreliable and don't care when that really isn't the case.
