I am in the clutches of a chest-burning flu that makes my eyes water and wants my head to explode every time I cough - which is often. I've shivered and sweat through three t-shirts already and because our company doesn't give us paid sick days - I've been shlepping to work at four thirty in the morning wondering if I'm going to rupture a lung before I get there. And to add insult to injury, it effing snowed today. *blargh* I want to curl up in a sweaty little ball and not get up until I'm better. I need to start building a contingency fund for times like this. /I'll be over here whining.

I had that flu a month or so ago, so you have my empathy. :(

Ugh that's not cool, and yes yes they do suck. You should be home in bed or at least on the couch under a blanket with some tea...

Oh! Thank you for the hugs. *hack*wheeze* I managed to give away my shift for Friday so I am home all day. I'm going back to bed as soon as I get a glass of water and a couple of chewable vitamin Cs :o)

WTF DUDE.

Companies can be SO STUPID about sick days - as if by not giving their workers paid sick days, they can somehow ensure that...what. That people will therefore not get sick? And then NOT SPREAD THE SICKNESS TO OTHERS? AND THEN NOT CREATE AN EPIDEMIC OF SICKNESS AT WORK?!?!

It's ridiculous and stupid, bad work ethics/management and I want to PUNCH THINGS when I hear that you are not only suffering, but your coming into work under THEIR STUPID RULES will guarantee that others will also drop like flu-ridden flies. IDIOT LAME BASTARDS NEED TO DIEEEEE.

And dude, seriously - I will PAY YOU to stay at home even for just one day. Please. This is not right that you feel obliged to go into such a pit of stupidity because of their rules. Stay home and get rest and I'll see you on pretend!St Patty's and I'll write you a cheque, goddammit. YOU DESERVE REST.
