👨💼 Coworker questions my schedule, AITA for setting him straight?
Managing a healthy work-life balance can be challenging, especially when unexpected situations arise. When OP's wife had a car accident, he stepped up to take care of his daughter's daycare needs. This meant coming to work 30 minutes later than usual, which was approved by his boss. However, a coworker questioned OP's schedule, causing tension in the workplace.
