    Question Longest you've had off of work

    The back to work thread made me wonder.

    Ruling out the answers of:

    14years from when i was born to when i got my first job at the age of 14

    Or anything equally as daft which i can't think of right now ...... what's the longest you've been out of work & why?

    For me it's 26 weeks. I worked out that for (IIRC) 112weeks between Dec 2006 & April 2009, i had 51 weeks off work for various things.

    Dec 06 - Feb 07 = 10 weeks work related stress
    Sept 07 - March 08 = 26 weeks ankle injury
    Nov 08 - Dec 08 = 1 week cracked ribs
    Jan 09 - April 09 = 14 weeks leg in pot as an attempt to fix ongoing ankle problem & then recovery.


    People told me i'd get bored. I can honestly hand on heart say that out of those 51 weeks, i was only bored ONE day, which is when i didn't have my car to go anywhere.


    I hate my place of work (don't hate the job, i hate the place of work) with a passion, so i'm never itching to go back. I've lost a lot of money obviously, so i can't afford to have any more time away from the place, unfortunately.

    You?

    Since I started work part time at 15 ( 7 years ago), I think the longest amount of time I have had off is just over 2 weeks, last year to go to Florida.
    I think I only had about 1 week off between leaving Sainsburys and starting my current job lol.

    Are we talking off sick or just off to do other things?

    Off sick I had 3 weeks when I ripped the tip of my finger and nail off in my mates car door.

    From school 2 months after getting blinded in my right eye.

    For study its been almost 2 years going from a novice to a City and Guilds tech cert level 2 and 3 Plumber and going on to my NVQ 2 and 3, unvented hot water cert, water regs, energy efficiency and then ultimately my ACS gas accreditation.
    Goodbye

    8 weeks when I dislocated my shoulder for the first time after being chucked off a horse onto solid gound.

    I hated it, first 4 weeks I had to have a sling that not only held my arm still round my neck, but also had a strap that went round my waist so it was completely immobile.

    You just can't imagine how much armpit hair grows in 4 weeks....

    Plus I had two lots of 6 weeks off when I had the two eldest children, but I worked up until the day before with both of them lol

    I've had the last two weeks off as holiday. That is my longest period off ever.

    Just (hopefully) coming to the end of 6 months off. Contracted pneumonia and pleurisy which culminated in a fairly major chest operation just over a month ago.

    Hoping to be back to work this week or next.
