If I am not running a high fever or throwing up, my ass is at work.

I get really annoyed at the people that complain about coming to work with a cold too. JFC its a cold. You were exposed to it before I even knew I had it. If people stayed home for colds winter would be a pretty damn unproductive season.

I'm a 30 year old that works in an office. Four years ago, I wasn't feeling good, so I just sat at my desk and kept quiet for 9 hours. I then went to the emergency room and got a kidney stone surgically removed. Back at work after a day off.

If I can sit in a chair, I'll be there.

Malaria once, and didn't miss any time off of work. A year and a half later dengue fever; still came to work.

That makes you a dumbass.

I don't have a choice but to work when I'm sick. There's only about 6 people at my shop and I'm responsible for too much. I mean if it's something that I literally have to miss work for, like a broken arm or severe flu, then they have to work around it somehow. Mostly I have to tough shit out though. We've had several people up there that call in for something every other damn week before. It's always a Friday or Monday. Of course...

If you are running a fever or are contagious you should stay home. I have told people that I worked for that I would not be in a enclosed vehicle or share a phone with someone that has strep or the flu etc.
Sick people should stay home and not infect everyone else.

I work for a large corporation with lots of people in a close vicinity. If I'm sick, I'm not coming in and being sick guy getting everyone else sick. The place will run just fine without me.

I already got a nasty flu this winter from a workplace hero trying to save the company from certain ruin with some sort of nasty swine flu type shit running through her system.

The only reason you go to work sick is because it's your business. I hate when people come in to work sick. Keep that shit to yourself. I appreciate your dedication but don't make me sick because you think you can make it through the day

We don't get sick time where I work so I've gone to work with the flu a few times. I'm a lineman and one of the times I threw up at work that day I actually vomited from 25 feet in the air while I was working in the bucket. I think I threw up like 6 times that day at work. I'm sure it looked pretty cool from the ground but it didn't feel so great at the time.

When I'm really sick , I go to work. When it's sunny and I am in the mood to play hookie, i call in sick. If you are sick, Why not get paid for it? If you want to be free, pretend you are sick. I can not think of a time I took of sick when I was really sick.

Phobia 04-10-2013 08:37 PM

I work pretty hard. I worked the day after spraining my knee. Could barely walk. Got heat exhaustion last summer. Went inside for an hour, drank some water, then went back at it for 6 more hours until 11:00 PM. But the runs? If I have the runs, I'm stationed very near a toilet. I'm not about to shit myself at a client's house. I learned that lesson the hard way a long, long time ago.
