had 1 day off sick and I'm 27.
I'm hardly a picture of perfect health either.| So many work colleagues and friends have a "cold"* and then need 2/3 days off. I sneeze for half a day but would rather just get the fuck on with it.
Although I'm not in a good way at the minute with ulcers that are making me feel like shit, they're not contagious though so I never have a day off with them.
was once in primary school. I've told work that if I ever say I'm ill I'm lying and just don't want to work.
Although I've realised January 2011 - August 2015 I've only had 2 days of work sick. Currently looking at clocking up a 4th whole calendar year without absence in the last 5.
Pretty remarkable considering I used to get ill fucking LOADS. Quitting smoking has done absolute wonders for my immune system.
when I got back to work this twat said "I've never had a day off in 30 years" and was really shitty with me. I asked him if he'd ever had to crawl on his hands and knees for weeks at a time "You cunt".
I'm rarely ill other than that, unless you count horrendous hangovers
then get ill, then get ill again quite quickly afterwards. With what seems trivial when you phone in sick (bad cold, stomach bug) but is actually a *really* bad cold or stomach bug.
But I get colds really easily now and they take ages to fuck off. It's a bit annoying tbh tbf. I'm not 27.
