Well it’s a Sunday, my day off, and I’m sitting at home with a cold and sore throat. Crap. I’m dosing myself up with paracetamol and a lie in. I’m up now obviously. A nice lie in the bath is also planned with a book. So illness does have it’s positive side.
I’ve probably got it from work. There’s several people ill at the moment. They come to work because they are afraid of being getting into trouble and afraid of losing money. The rest of us then catch whatever they’ve got. I’m sure this is the same in most companies.
I think sick people should be forced to go home. Its against health and safety to put sick people next to healthy people – when the sickness is viral. That way the company would lose less money due to sickness as there wouldn’t be as many people catching it. Common sense, surely?
