Right now I am home, sick as a dog and miserable. Fever, sore throat, sneezing, wheezing and hacking. Why you may ask ? All this week a co-worker showed up to work sick as a dog. This guy is the type that does not believe in calling out sick even if you are on your deathbed and is quite proud of the fact that in his 7 years with this company he has never called out once. Now, I can't prove for certain that he is the result of my illness, but since Thursday of last week I have not been anywhere but work, so in my mind this really points to him as the source of my illness. I work in a lab/office environment, space is limited, and germs spread easily. I personally think it is pretty ignorant to show up work when your sick and risk making your co-workers and/or their families sick. I understand not everyone has the luxury of paid sick days, but those who do, please use them if you are not feeling well!
