    She said that she was very proud that she never missed a day of work or school, no matter how sick she was.

    I told her she was a walking pandemic waiting to happen and if there was ever anything good in her wilted, oozing heart, she would go home. (I actually said that)

    She told me I was very rude and moved her seat closer to the professor. He told her she should go home. She started to cry and ran out.

    Now I feel a bit bad, but come on. I hate being sick and people like that don't even think that they may be spreading their nasty little germs everywhere.
    you said what I would have !! People if your sick stop making everyone else sick!! get a clue , you got it some where from some fool not staying home, go to bed, get well and then go to work !!

    Re: If you are sick... GO HOME!

    I rarely go to work sick, and if I do it to pick up my laptop and take it back home. I hate being sick and I see no reason to spread my illness when I can work from home. I also get really mad when others come to work anyway when they are sick and infect me. I agree with others about school, I never send my kids when they are sick, but I have seen several people send thier kids and it makes me so mad.

    Have the managers ever stopped to think what a disservice they are doing to their customers by putting them in a situation where they might get sick?

    I don't know the outcome to be honest. I know that she probably couldn't afford a lawyer...

God only knows how many people I infected, but I was forced to go in. When I finally had enough of that job I walked out in the middle of my sift. There was also a class action lawsuit against them for doing a few illegal things. I got a nice check about 2 years after I had stopped working there
    See above...

    I get sick (and stay sick for weeks) SO easily, so I totally hear you on the "stay home when you're sick" bit. I don't understand why some people don't think about others and their health. We live in a "me-me-me" society and it's disgusting. I do the airborn too.. Zicam, Vitamin C, D and E, Mushroom IMmune booster mixture, Co-Q 10, Grapefruit seed tabs, Xclear nasal wash.. everything. Stay home if you're sick!

    That's amazing, it's like we work for the same company. :blink:

    I go to work when I'm sick unless I'm too sick to get out of bed. I save my sick days for when my daughter is too sick to go to school, or when I just don't feel like working.

    This was equally bad on my parents because this housekeeper has been with them for over 30 years and they have seen this girl grow up through the years.
    That's sad

I said, "hopefully, but you staying home would have helped more." She stopped turning around that day.

    You ROCK! I have a new HERO!

    Every time someone who sits near me shows up sick I start chugging airbourne. Someone actually asked me once sarcastically if I really thought it worked. Yeah, hopefully, but if the sick people would stay home it would be better.

    I don't get that one either, sending a little kid to school sick. Parents of these kids must have no heart. Just this week I had to keep my child home because she had a fever. I work but stayed home with her- Too bad for my job, my first place is my child.

    Esp. stay-at-home moms. Hello? Your job is to be a mom. Mother your kid, and cancel your freaking hair appt. I've lectured my friends numerous times about it. It's a major pet peeve of mine.

    Once I sent home one of my classroom assistants because she came to work with a fever. Hello? We have a room full of autistic and medically fragile kids here who sure as heck aren't benefiting from you being sick and touching them. :yuck: She wasn't happy with me, but oh well.
    I totally agree. People just don't get it.

    HA! good for you thejoshualee! HR should do something about people at work. I hate the company I work for but at least they pay for our flu shots and would rather us be at work healthy and stay home when sick. My boss is big on staying home when sick and has sent people home because the fact that they will spread whatever virus but also because there is nothing worse than listening to the coughing, sneezing and loud nose blowing idiots. One gal here practically chokes everytime she coughs. UGH gross

    The place I use to work didn't think being sick was an excuse to go home. The only time I was allowed to go home was when I was in tears because I was about ready to collapse. Mind you that this was an sandwich shop and sick employees were there making food year around.
