I sent a message today to our HR informing them that I won't be able to work today and I applied for sick leave because I'm not feeling well. But the fact is I'm not really sick, I don't have a fever or anything.
My only reason is I feel tired today because last night my motorbike stopped working on my way home at around 9 PM and I needed to fix it on the road. After hours fixing and the fact I just left the office, I feel totally exhausted. So I decided that I'll be needing a long rest and also bring my motorbike to mechanic for proper check.
Now, I would like to write a follow-up message, and tell the HR that I'll be back to the office tomorrow, but I'm afraid they may think I have a fever or any symptoms and as we know COVID still prevalent. How do I tell them I'm just tired? Or can I call it burn out? I was thinking that if I'd say burn out, they may have the impression that I could not handle stress properly, if I'd say tired they may think I'm getting lazy.
I just got 1 year in this company.
