|Day 2 of my wrestling with crud. Actually it's more like day 5 since I came down with this crap on Saturday. The hardest thing about spending all day coughing and sneezing at work? The unspoken glares of all your co-workers. I get it. I do. I hate it when someone comes in to work and does that crap if I am feeling fine. But what choice do they have? What choice do I have? The work needs to get done and most companies, mine included, have really crappy sick day policies.
Since I am the new guy I get 10 days off with pay...sounds nice on the surface but those 10 are the only ones I get including anytime I would have to take off for sickness. It's what everyone gets though my co-workers get more time than me since they've been here longer. But who wants to take their precious vacation time for sickness? I don't. Even if you are willing to do so you can't stay out all week. You don't have enough days. Junk like this just doesn't go away overnight as much as people might wish it would.
Personally, I am feeling better. I am coughing less, sneezing less but I am still coughing. God I hate this crud. I really hope I can get this out of my system soon
