I remember when the US what hit by terrorists...actually my nephew was born on that day of Sept 11, 2001. And I was at work.
I was very ignorant to what was going on...all I knew was we were being sent home early. The airport is 3 or 4 blocks away from house. My Supervisor at the time was very KEEN to what was going on before it was even announced it was an attack. She said...this is being done on purpose....and because I lived so close to an airport....I said I wanted to go home to be with my kids.
I DIDNT realize the severity nor did I even think there was a possibility of my airport being attacked..but since the Supervisor thought it was a threat to all airplanes and airports...I used that excuse to go HOME AND DRINK.
I also used that excuse the next day..(I was hungover)...and said that I wanted to keep kids home from school in wake of the attacks and the fear and media frenzy on TV. Of course everyone else by then was on board with how terrorizing the situation was....but I was just happy to have an excuse to stay home and drink.
Now that I am sober...and see the "true" affect these terrorists are having on all of us...my heart goes out to you guys. And anyone who is using this as a reason to be "stressed", stay out of work....etc...I GET IT.
