Wouldn't be such a problem if everyone weren't such pussies.

Being off work with a cold is pathetic.

Fuck that. I don't like being sick and nobody else I know does. It's that kind of "I'm fine, I'm fine" attitude that makes it shit for everyone. Plus, it makes it about a hundred times as bad if I get sick and bring it home to my son. I can handle a cold, but having a sick one-year old seriously blows dick. If you're sick, stay the fuck away from me.

See, I don't consider a cold "sick". It's what, a blocked noise, headache and a sore throat or a cough? That's nothing. If the whole office sits here with a box of tissues and a couple of ibuprofen, who cares? Plus there's nothing more annoying than shit being delayed (like today) for no better reason than people being a bitch about having a cold.

Small children, different.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sick?s=t


common cold

— n
a mild viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, characterized by sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, nasal congestion, sore throat, etc


http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/common+cold?s=t


The common cold (also known as nasopharyngitis, rhinopharyngitis, acute coryza,[1] head cold, or simply a cold) is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract which primarily affects the nose

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_cold



So, i'd say having a cold = sick. Just because the degree of such isn't as sever as someone who's suffering from food poisoining or something doesn't mean it's not "being sick"

If you want to be a tough guy and put up with it, then fine. I do too at times, but to blame people for staying home when they're sick and saying they need to "put up with it" is ridiculous, and that attitude usually only comes from people who aren't sick at the time. Plus, if you're worried about shit being delayed because one person is out, think of the ripple effect that person coming in to work can have on the rest of the workplace if that person is infecting everyone, causing other people to have to call in sick. Especially when not everyone's immune system is the same, some people have more trouble fighting a cold than others. It's probably better for 1 person to say home then it is for 7 people having to stay home 1 week later.

And i'm saying this as a single person who lives on his own.

A "common cold" for a one year old can still be very serious and stressful. It takes on a whole other meaning.

Yeah, on the whole cold thing too, I'm studying/working part-time as a social care worker, and when you're working all day with other people, including clients and staff, having a cold not only makes your day harder, but is potentially putting them at risk. Depends on the kind of work too, y'know.
