I understand that being able to take leave from work in order to meet with the licensing worker demonstrates that I have enough flexibility in my job to deal with emergencies with a kiddo.
But four hours of leave for a fifteen minute visit is just inappropriate. If I were paid by the hour, I would be pissed. And I don't use that type of language lightly. Plus, the more I have to take off before I'm licensed, the less time I'll have saved to take off when I really need to!
