So, I'm sick. I'm not deathly ill, but my head is stuffed up and I've got a sore throat. I'm blowing my nose a lot. There's nothing that absolutely needs to be done today, as far as I know. I get paid for sick time so that's not an issue.

Would you go in to work in my situation?

Edit: doh, forgot the poll!

Everybody here comes to work sick, and they all walk past my cube. :| (Yeah, I got a "100 Front Street" cube..sigh)

Do you get paid for any unused sick days?

I'm inclined to go with the golfing comment...I only used sick days when I was hung over, or something...If you can go to work, and there's really nothing to do, it sounds like you should have a pretty easy day.

Nope, I wouldn't want to get my coworkers sick. But then again, I can just as easily work from home by forwarding my officephone to my cellphone and VPN/RD, so I can still get most work done...unless a client really needs me onsite. Last week I was sick and I worked from bed with my laptop and cellphone.
