TMI, or, here's a quarter
Personally, I figure any explanation is TMI -- unless you're going to be out of the office for more than a day, no one wants to know if it's because your body is rejecting yesterday's Chinese takeout or if you've just got a bad case of ocular hemorrhoids. The only thing anyone needs to hear is "I won't be in."
I'm not sure just what reaction she was hoping to elicit from her co-workers (empathy? the offer of a ride to her doctor's office? mints on her pillow tonight?), but the collective response seemed to be a yawn. Apparently I'm not the only heartless bitch in the work group.
