My chest is congested and feeling a little weak but no body ache like with the flu. I would like to call in but not feeling sick enough to warrant it.:(

Fake it.

I hate doing that, not calling in and then halfway into the workday getting slammed and feeling like crap.

BTW, I'm just getting over a cold myself. Ruined my weekend. :(

I can drive just fine. As much as I don't want to get out of bed I still can. Besides that I'm not really showing any signs of being sick (coughing, sneezing...) although my body says otherwise.

Keep your germs at home. Your co-workers will thank you for it.
I hate when people are sick and still come in to work because they want to be iron-man.
Fvck that! It's not about showing everyone that you're a super trooper, it's about not infecting the office with your cold.

It's possible I could've went to work but I feel like crap. It's no fun working when you feel like crap and can't concentrate. So I'm staying home... my job isn't that important where I absolutely HAD to be there today.

I can't call in sick, where I work they opperate on a points system. If you accumulate too many points you risk being fired, calling in sick equals three points. It takes about 15 points before you risk being fired.

Now that I think about it, most of the times I called in where because of that and because I was hung over. Very rarely do I call in because I'm really sick.

I'm a contractor and have been for the past two and half years, so I get no vacation or sick time. That equals me never calling in sick unless I'm basically on my death bed.
