In Bustin' Out mode, you can skip work by moving back into Mom's house. While you live with Mom, the bus will not arrive, and you do not have to work. This is useful if things are not going so well and you need some time to "restore" your Sim.
In Bustin' Out mode, you can skip work by changing jobs before the bus arrives. Later, you can just change back to your old job. This is useful if you are about to get fired. Note: You will only get fired if you skip work two or three times in a row.
It is easy to lose your job when you do not go to work for two or three days. When this happens you will get a phone call saying that you have been fired. Even if you do not answer the phone, a message will appear stating that you lost your job. Your Sim will be unemployed, but it will not be the end of the game. Getting fired gives you a chance to raise your Sim's motives, build some missing skills, or make more friends to help you advance in your career when you start your job again. However, when you get your job back you must start at the same slot that you were before. This means you are going to have to work hard again to get promoted and be able to move out.
