What I didn't get?
|Probably why I don't get sick days|
This sounds great, but I pride myself on being as honest as possible. And let's be real here: a cold does NOT mean that you're sick. I get colds. Often. But I don't get sick. (Hangovers also don't count as being sick.)
So, as I sit here, on my two year anniversary, my head congested, my nose stuffed and my throat scratching me like it ain't nobody's business, I will continue to smile and act like my bed isn't all that's on my mind right now.
Let's not forget the bottle of Purell and the no-name-but-nice-smelling hand sanitizer I have at my desk, to protect everyone else. It's a cold. It's annoying. It's not deadly. But it can be contagious. I'm not about to pass that onto everyone else.
The one upside: if the cold is really bad (which this one isn't), I'll get sent home. At least then my boss knows I'm not faking it!
Do you still go to work if you have a cold?
Does your workplace give you sick days?
