Tell me how much sleep you'd get that night in a hotel room without your family and what frame of mind would you be in the next day to face your co-workers that you just let down? Would you be able to show up the next day? Not ever being in this situation I cannot honestly say that I could or couldn't.
The hatred for Leighton on a professional level is well known. But people taking this to a personal level is really distateful IMO.
Leighton is getting paid about $29,000
for doing absolutely nothing. I'll save my sympathy for parents working 2 or 3 minimum wage jobs to put a roof over their heads and feed their families.
