Time To Mend

Tokyo-based marketing firm Hime & Company allows its employees to take paid time off after a bad break-up, reports Reuters. And the older you are, the more time you're allotted. CEO Miki Hiradate, whose company of six women markets cosmetics, says, "Not everyone needs to take maternity leave but with heartbreak, everyone needs time off, just like when you get sick." Beats crying in the bathroom or huddled in your cubicle, that's for sure. Hiradate also allows mornings off twice a year for shopping the sales, and is certain to be inundated with résumés. [Reuters]
