Sims not going to school/work/daycare

So I'm not sure if other people are having this problem I've seen someone on the forums complain about it but my Sims will have supposedly gone to work/school/daycare and their profile will be greyed out, including their inventory, however the sim is still on the lot and is playable like a normal sim. For toddlers and children they will eventually stop being greyed out but for adult Sims the only way to stop it is to get them to quit their jobs.

    I have seen it with the toddlers. I did see it with one of my teens. I just did the ol' jump to another location and then return. Eventually, it straightened itself. out. But, in the meantime it's annoying.

    Yes, from the May patch in my game. It is short lived but does happen.

    Traveling or hopping in and out of manage worlds helps unstick them.

    I've noticed it more with my Sim kids -- they're supposed to be home from school and their portrait is greyed out, but they're just standing outside the house.

    It definitely got worse after the last patch or two. Or maybe after the Vampire patch? Because I really started noticing my bloodsuckers frying when they were supposed to be at work in February. And the same fix works for that too.
