I'm just saying...

If you have a cold, are you too sick to work? While you can try to run from a common cold , you can't hide! And you must use common sense before you expose others at work to your cold virus. Findings show that when we're sick with the common cold, we're not very productive. In fact, lost productivity on the job accounts for up to 60% of employer health costs -- more than if the sick employees had taken a sick day. (WebMD)

Enough said. No reason to give someone a hard time about calling in (especially when that person has 40 hours of sick time). I'm just saying.

I am with ya! I rarely call off but I know when I need to. Also, it bothers me to no end to see people here at work sicker than dogs and coughing all over the place...I'd rahter them not share their germs!

I'm so sorry to hear you are sick, and completely agree that that is ridiculous!

It was a happy day for him when he gave us our new lives, through the truth of his Word, and we became, as it were, the first children in his new family. JAMES 1:18 LB
