Sick People Should Stay Home
Here I am finally trying to eat right and exercise and I get sick. I am sick because my boss (who is salaried and can stay home when he's sick) won't stay home when he's sick because he thinks the place can't run without him. So now I'm sick and I can't afford to take days off because I don't get sick days. I know that your job doesn't want you to take sick days, but if you're really sick, STAY HOME! We don't want whatever you have. But no. You come to work sick so you can save your sick days for those beatiful days when you just don't feel like coming to work. No wonder companies don't give sick days anymore. I won't be staying home.....I need my 40 hours. My boss, on the other hand, should have stayed home until he knew he wasn't contagious. There are 3 of us who work in that office together, so I know Bill (my co-worker) is probably gonna get it too. And he won't stay home either because he needs his 40 hours. So Sick People, please stay home. Take pity on those of us who can't.
