Default Ugh! Sick people who come to work!

The girl sitting next to me at work has been coughing and sneezing all week. This morning, I came down with a sore throat and stuffed up, I hope I won't be sick for the weekend!

Why can't sick people stay home and stop spreading the 'joy'??

OEMs don't wait for suppliers..

Sick people should try to work from home whenever possible. I hate when people come around my desk and cough. It makes me angry and cantankerous..

quite often, conservative, old school bosses don't like to allow telecommuting, afterall we can't be "under their thumb" if we're "working" from home.

they'd prefer we blow R&R/Vacation time for a slight sniffle.

since more than likely, I caught it from work in the first place, I tend to go ahead and go in (and be less than productive) but isolate myself in my cube.

:dunno:

I work in an elementary school with 500 students and 35 adults. Someone is sick every day from October to May. Over the past 8 years I've built up quite an immune system. I don't get sick EVER!

We dont get paid for sick time where i work, so i try and go to work sick as much as possible, unless im feeling really crappy that day. Doing electrical work isn't as bad as coming to an office sick i guess.
