drastic measure for drastic times, but my coworkers seem to need a lesson in illness etiquette.
- if 2 out of your 2 children have confirmed h1n1, do not come into work the next few days... we will not miss you.
- if 5 out of your 5 children have some sort of flu and they go to public school, assume they have h1n1 AND assume you will get it as well and work from home... we will not miss you.
- if both you and your spouse are very sick and said spouse is a in physician assistant's school, assume you have h1n1 and take sick time, ALU pays 90% of salary on sick days... stay out a week.
Stories like this in the New York Times make me want to avoid it like the plague.
So wash your hands, cover your mouth and stay home... you won't be missed.
