What is so hard about this concept!? If you are sick stay home!
There has been something totally flu-like circulating the office the entire time we have been here. I had to coax one of my colleagues to stay at the hotel when she came down with it. The reasoning is pretty straight forward, if you're sick, stay home – if you come in and pass it to the rest of us you'll be less popular than if you stayed home and kept it to yourself!
I see the bullheadedness of the sick is not confined to the Americas!
Wherever you are please! Stay home if you're sick!
