I only have a two-week job, but I managed to get a cold before it was halfway over.
The spouse and one of the kids have been sick, but I don’t think I got it from them—they were pretty well on the mend by the time I caught it. I suspect I picked it up from a co-worker; half the people around me seem to be sniffling, coughing, and/or sneezing.
So I have to drag my sick, pitiful ass out of bed at five in the fucking morning. Because if I don’t show up for work it would be really hard on everyone else who has to pick up the slack in my absence.
Thank $DEITY for Dayquil.
