    This sucks!

    Somebody has been coming in to work for the past days sniffling, coughing and hacking up stuff. Just generally nasty stuff that you shouldn't do around your coworkers. The bad part about the whole situation is that it's the boss... so you can't exactly tell her to go home.

    So this morning I wake up with a sore throat and a slight cough.... I'm getting sick dammit! I haven't been around anyone else in the last 2 weeks that has the flu....

    I fugging hate people who come to work sick! I hate everyone of you! YOU SUCK! :|

    Joe

    EDIT: Thanks for the correction dxkj.

    Screw you. Hours that I am not there, I don't get paid. Not all of us have the option of taking paid sick days.

    So, one freaking day out of 6 months is going to throw off your whole life? Whatever...

    I'll tell you what then.... my name is Joe Adkins and I live in North Pole, Alaska ( a little town outside Fairbanks). If you ever work with me and get sick, give me a call and I'll GIVE YOU what you were going to be paid for that one day while you take a sick day. FOR FREE! It is worth that much to me not to get sick....

    How's that?

    EDIT: cybpnk and minendo, PM me and I will send you a signed contract to this effect...

    LISTEN to yourself

    not 1 day of unpaid sick leave, MORE than 1 day, in fact you said weeks.


    You expect people to take off weeks of unpaid sick leave, and have it not affect their finances? Let alone how it would affect the company

    My offer goes out to anyone who ends up working with me. I'll limit it to 3 days a month total (not per coworker).... you guys probably think I'm just kidding, but I'm as serious as a heart attack. :|

    EDIT: Spelling and wrong word choice.

    STFU if you keep yourself healthy you are not going to get the Flu from someone who has it but since you cant keep yourself in good shape you blame it on another person.

    Ohh shove it. I supposed you would say the same about the SARS outbreak earlier this year... "only people who are out of shape and in bad health would get sick!" BS... even the people who are in the best shape get sick.

    Did everyone at your work come down with the Flu or just you, did everyone in contact with SARS victims come down with SARS, who were the only people to die from SARS?

    Don't blame other people for your weak immune system.

    As I'm sitting here at my desk, I've heard at least 4 other people in the office with the same dry hacking cough.... we are all getting it... not just the people with weak immune systems.
