[OPEN] 'Go to work' interaction appearing on another Sim

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.63.134.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get To Work, Get Together, City Living, Cats and Dogs, Seasons, Get Famous, Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out, Parenthood, Jungle Adventure, Vintage Glamour, Laundry Day, Holiday
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When a Sim should be going to work but has taken the day off, the option to "Go to work" appears when clicking on another Sim.
What happens when the bug occurs? Clicking the option sends the Sim who created the interaction to go to work.
What do you expect to see? For the "Go to work" option to only appear when clicking on the selected / intended Sim as designed, not appear on other Sims.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

My two Sims recently went to Granite Falls, and the one who has a job took PTO. During his work hours, when clicking on my other (adult) Sim to perform interactions, the option appeared for me to "Go to work". Thought maybe this was just something weird in the vacation world (I dunno okay, it was my first time using Granite Falls !), but am now seeing this is also occurring when on the home lot (when interacting with a toddler).

I'm not sure if this is a new bug from the June 3rd / 4th update or not as I only recently started playing again and was doing a rags to riches. I just merged my household with an NPC who has a job, so this is the first time I'm seeing this.

I really hope the way I'm explaining this makes sense, hopefully the screenshot helps (taken before CC was removed, I can take a new one if needed).

Created a brand new save (again without CC), same thing is happening when interacting with an adult and with a child. I've never used mods, only CC. Hope this helps.

 

Edit to add screenshot of resulting interaction. I didn't cancel it, was just hovering over it to show what it was.

@cyoung1024 Same thing happens in my game. If the active sim needs to go to work, the interaction "Go to work" appears on another sim in the household when clicking on him / her.
Personally, I think it's a bug because it is no social interaction, it only causes the active sim to go to work.

I wonder what happens when you click on it. Who goes to work lol?

@Bearpal64 The active Sim goes to work.  Looks like it's just a misplaced option (like everyone being able to warn people about "bed safety" Standard smile).  Mildly annoying that they take up spots on the social menu, but otherwise it seems fairly harmless at least.

Just aged up my first teen in a while - and he's getting the "Go To School" option on other Sims too (children don't though).
