Don’t Bring Your Sickness To Work!

sickmonkey001

Last week, I felt a cold coming on early in the morning before I went to work.  All the signs told me to stay home, but no, I went in anyways.  As the first couple of hours progressed, the sniffling and sneezing increased, and soon, the person in the adjacent cube peered over the divider and suggested that I go home.  Naturally, I took her suggestion under advisement and soldiered on with my work.

Soon after, I walked past my manager and he said that he heard that I wasn’t feeling too well.  He told me to go home.  I knew exactly who had told him that I was sick.  At first, I was annoyed at my neighbor for ratting me out, but she did the right thing.  I was worse the second day.  I was stubborn for not taking her advice, but most importantly, I placed my work ahead of the health of others.  The last thing I wanted to do was spread disease throughout the office.

So here’s the deal, if you are sick, stay home.  If you become sick at work, go home!
