So, say hypothetically you have two kids in daycare who are are sick all the time, so you're often sick, and you can't always miss work since you're sick so damn often. But then say one day you have a stomach virus, pink eye, and head lice all at the same time. Don't you think this is grounds for a sick day? I had to spend an entire day in close quarters with this person. Ugh!


OMG! Minging! That is one too many signs that you need time out on sick leave.

We get badgered if we are out sick and sometimes it is just easier to turn up to work. In the last place I worked in I ended up going to work one day with *ahem* intestinal issues because I was so scared of the boss. I ended up having to go home a few minutes early to get to the doctor because it was day 4 of me being ill. As it was the manager was crabby because I had to go to the doctor. I ended up being signed off sick for the following day because I hadn't eaten in so long.
I had bronchitis around this time last year and that tends to be very serious with me since I have asthma. I was having about 5 attacks a day and the manager told me outright that I plain wasn't allowed sick leave. My GP was outraged when I told him I had to keep working. The last time I had bronchitis I was put on strict bed rest because my heartrate had gone from 70 (my normal) to over 140 even at resting. The week at work I nearly kept passing out and most of the time I was a dangerous greyish colour. The following week that same manager called in sick for the week with a sinus infection.

Yikes, daisychain!

But I hear you. I am in a position where no one can replace me since I'm the only one doing my job (even my boss doesn't know how to do my job), so if I'm sick, which is rare but it does happen, I'm best to just go in lest I want to face a shitstorm upon my return. I'm also paid hourly, and sick days aren't a thing, so that really sucks. It's a conundrum because I REALLY don't want to get clients or customers sick, but at the same time I need the money and need to make sure everything is going okay at work. The one time I stayed home sick with a stomach virus; I got about 50 texts from work all day, with questions that I couldn't really answer without just dealing with them myself.

I feel extremely lucky to have this job--I really do--but sometimes I fantasize about going back to a job where I can call in sick and let my boss deal with it.

i'm feeling super bummed out today. the weather is awful. the anniversary of my dad's death is this week and so is my birthday, so my birthday has been a bummer for the last 7 years or so. i'm not really celebrating this year except by making myself a cake, which will be nice. so my plan for this week is to just mope around and watch murder mysteries, drink tea and crochet.

I wish this was a thing! Though aren't you afraid that your farts would freeze upon exiting your butt and you'd have weird panty-frost? I hear Boston is cold right now.

aw, ijdi. my birthday and christmas are no-good anniversaries for me. it's o.k. to embrace the mopes, i think, for a little while. it's a tough thing; i think now some people try extra-hard to make those days awesome, and i feel guilty if i don't work hard to be happy, but i also feel guilty about letting myself be distracted, if that makes any sense. there's probably a way to turn it around and embrace life or whatever, but i say crochet glumly if you need to. it's your day.

UM, I love you a little bit. Every time I fart outside in the cold like this, I wonder if you can see the steam coming out, like when you can see your breath in the cold. Only you know, my butt.

It's a little better today, but last week! Wowza, it was pretty cold.

Not really bad enough to be the worst thing about my day, but I co-worker is getting on my nerves.

I was going to come on here and grumble about how my laptop is still in the shop and I don't have a personal computer to use. Then I got a call from the shop.

They were burglarized and MY forking LAPTOP GOT STOLEN.

New thing to grumble about I just wanted my forking laptop back.

You know what's not cute?

Say you're learning how to perform a breast exam on a female patient and you're the only girl in the group, and when the professor asks who wants to go first, one of the guys in the group chirps, "Hahaha, I vote for Freetahtah!"

It's sexist. Or at least it SEEMED that way to me. Maybe I'm just sensitive. Nominating anyone for something like that is douchey... you just either let someone volunteer or have the professor pick someone after an awkward amount of time has passed.

Even having taken a sick day, I am still going to be up past midnight finishing my grades in the database and getting my lessons squared away for tomorrow. BUT I DON'T CARE. I needed the sick day, I needed the over-sleeping I accidentally did this morning (luckily I called out sick yesterday!), and I needed to get this work done. Now that my grades are in, I feel a million times better. I'm so glad that I took the time to write these comments and took the sick day so I could do them right. Even though some of my students won't read them, I don't care. It was worth it to ME. I got satisfaction out of it.

Now I'm more than halfway done with the school year!

And possibly less than five months away from a new exciting job!

My dad thinks the texture of the vegan diner seitan roast I made, is similar to the clootie (sp??) dumpling my nan used to make and he thinks I should try making a sweet one! Sweet seitan... Madness or genius?
