I’ve been miserably sick for the last week, which hasn’t left me much brainpower for writing or even thinking about writing. So, all that you all are getting this time around is a short public service announcement. People, please don’t go places when you’re sick. Stay home. Rest. Use your sick leave if you have it so that you’re even getting paid for it. You’ll recover faster and the people around you won’t catch what you’ve got, just to give it right back to you.
I understand that many people don’t get the luxury of sick time at their jobs, and I can empathize. Do what you have to do to keep a roof over your head. But going to social events and parties when you’re obviously sick as a dog is not cool. Then you just end up infecting some other poor schmuck who has to stay home from work with a brick up his nose and write a public service announcement in place of a real blog post. And, really, nobody wants that. Especially the schmuck. In short, please, don’t be a dick. It’s better for you and better for everyone around you.
What about the rest of you? What’s the worst illness you’ve ever caught from someone who refused to stay home and recover?
I’ve had terrible experiences with this and church. For some reason people believe that God wants them to spread the flu.
