Go away! I don't want your germs!
Go away, I'm ill but I can't take anymore sick as I won't get paid due to the rubbish company sick policy.
that's cause temps don't get sick pay though
don't blame the individual, blame the system!
especially when they give the old "oh no, I'll be alright" martyr sniff.
I DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU! I CARE ABOUT ME!
else I don't get paid :(((((
Also: if I make my colleagues ill then they'll stay off work and I can sit about doing nowt all day...
People fall into one of two camps I guess - I'm certainly in the corner of the germ botherers staying home.
The only time I've had the flu in the past 4 years was when the guy beside me came in and spent a week coughing and spluttering, and ignoring even my boss's entreaties to leave. Not impressed.
Our office is a hive of death viruses. Although despite everyone in my office sneezing their face off and everyone in my house dying of cough and cold, I'm strangely immune.
I AM IRONMAN DA DA DA DA DA DA DA DA.
Although if that wasn't an option I'd be in the office, our sick leave policy is awful.
I could feel the cold coming on in the back of my throat. Not really ill enough to stay home. Should do really though. I ran a few errands in the van and just stayed out of everyone's way. Fucked off when I got back to the office.
Feel like shit now.
i came in on monday this week with a bit of a cold... mainly because i'd had the previous monday off when i could have probably struggled in.
