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.

@notaclevername: i was the third in 6 months to take this, but since i need a job (and apparently being able to write kick ass papers on obscure topics is not a "marketable skill" outside of grad school) i've committed to staying a year. the plan is to hang on for 12 months, put in my two weeks notice and take my 5 vacation days for the last week.

this is all predicated on getting into grad school. if i don't— fuck this shit. i'm out.
