Rant: Stay Home If You’re Sick!

By Brian Burgess on October 22nd, 2007

This is not a tech article but does affect all of us who work in the office place.  Today when I came in to start my day … THREE people walked by my office coughing, hacking, and snotting up the place.  There is no reason for this!  It is bad enough we have to go to a crappy job and make a corporation money everyday, let alone breathe in other peoples nasty viruses and germs.  I cringe every time I hear the cough, sneeze, or nose blow of a co worker who is obviously sick.  So, please!  Stay home if your sick!  There is absolutely no honor in “toughing it out” when you jeopardize the wellness of others.
