Any issues?

This one will be a short post... but worth mentioning...

I happen to manage a team which is spread across multiple locations-- Mumbai, where I am, and then in Bangalore and Kolkata.

Yesterday, one of my Bangalore team members pings to inform me that he had to leave early the day before without notifying me because his spouse complained about a stomach ache, and today he has to take her to the doc for further diagnosis.

Of course, who am I to stop people from visiting their doctors? Without giving another thought, I just typed on the messenger: "Go Ahead. No Issue..."

He replies: "She just has a stomach ache, but no, no issue. It's some gynecological problem."
