Apparently some of you have forgotten about our company's most excellent "sick days" policy. It basically states that there's no fixed number of sick days that you're allowed to use per year. You cannot accumulate sick days and they don't expire. Instead, when you're sick or have a medical obligation, you stay home or otherwise deal with it.
The logical consequence of this policy, I thought, was quite simple--easy enough for a 5 year old to grasp. But you've managed to surprise me in the past, so allow me to make this explicit:
WHEN YOU'RE SICK, STAY THE FUCK HOME!!!
You see, I lost about 2.5-3.0 days of productivity this week due to getting sick. I have a very strong suspicion this has to do with coworkers around me being sick at work early in the week. The cold I picked up on the plane rides to India was almost gone, yet I managed to pick up another illness. And I'm pretty sure my cats didn't give it to me.
Thank you for your time.
