So eveyone around me is sick or has been sick with the flu bug. At work, at home, family. I think alot of people don't realize they are contagious and they end up passing it around. They say it's just a cold, I don't know what I have, or just don't give a $%&@. Some are not considerate. Well guess what, I am sick. I don't get sick. Maybe a minor cold. Now I am supposed to work today. Do I do what the rest of the people do and try to tough it out. I have a 7 hr shift. You see, I am a deli-cashier. I am not running to the toilet every ten minutes. No sore throat, no chillls, no fever. But I do have a stuffed up nose, cough and I think I am getting body aches. The BIGGEST problem is, I can not afford to miss work. My employer has cut hours to less than half. I have just taken some medicine to see if that takes away my symptons. I am not blamimg anyone for this, but please people, let someone know if you are not feeling well, or STAY home. So now I have to make the agnoizing decision whether I should work and try not to pass this to someone else. I NEED the paycheck. Sorry to vent!
