Illness in the Workplace: NOT ME
Monday, August 30, 2010
Several of my co workers are sick. With the flu.
I have been taking my Alive Whole Food Multi Vitamins regularly (even take them with me to work just in case) and so far, so good. I have missed the last several workplace illnesses that have come our way and I plan on missing the next several as well. There are some folks who get sick and never seem to get well, there are others who get every germ that runs around this place like clockwork.
Granted, we're sitting in air conditioning and recycled air for over 8 hours, so this place is a hotbed for disease. We also share desks so there are containers of Clorox wipes all over the place.
I want to tell the constantly sick people to be more healthy in their lifestyle, I really do, but that's overstepping someline, especially in the workplace. We're told to stay home if we're sick, yet at the same time the attendance policy doesn't really mesh with that idea. Thus we get sick folks who show up to work.
I don't like being sick. Like is hard enough without feeling horrible, so I will do what I can to stay well. So I will take my vitamins, drink my tea and wash my hands religiously.
