I would whine...

but it comes out like a ribbit more than a squeak and I'm a mouse, not a frog. I am sick. I caught the office cold. A coworker e-mailed me on the weekend to complain about how HE caught it from another coworker, saying the boss should have "ordered him home" so we wouldn't be sick and our weekends ruined. Ruined? I was sick and still managed to get out everyday, run 18k, paint the hallway, bake, do laundry... But HE was soooo sick he took yesterday off. I was here and so was the other sicko. He's back today and doesn't sound or look ill. I am still drippy, droopy and horse. what the.... Apparently I'm not the best whiner around here. I have been replaced. perhaps I should pack up my desk and move on to greener pastures...taking my cold with me. *ACHOO*

I think it all comes down to the fact that men are the WHINIEST SOBs when they are sick!!!

I still cooked and cleaned when I was sick but when I gave it to Danny he sat on the couch and moaned...wuss.

Prove to them that this mouse is stronger than any man!!

I agree, sick men are babies.

Hope you are feeling better soon. My hubby and I just got over that awful cold. There IS a light at the end of the tunnel!

sorry I'm with your co-worker on this one and hope for the sake of the rest of the folks you work with, that your boss will "order you home" if your sick stay home don't be spreading it around. Men may be whiners when sick but at least he did it right and stayed home till he got better instead of infecting the next person... sorry but its a huge pet peeve of mine, if your sick stay the frig home, I don't want it...

shirls - the funny thing is Kris had bronchitis a few weeks ago and came to work. None of us got it. Now someone else gets a cold and this guy gets his panties in a knot.

now I don't know if i caught it from him or somewhere else because I have people at home sick and my nieces are little germ breeders. I just thought his email plus his rant in my office last friday were inappropriate.

Maybe if you stopped licking Kris' keyboard after he finishes off his big macs it would cut back on your exposure to the office germs.

Shirls said...

sorry can't let it go cause its such a huge pet peeve, where and how you got it totally not relevant - its here, spreading it to others so relevant, don't take your germs to work thats all I'm saying

PS - I love that I can say that on your blog too!

I ♥ people who speak their mind!

*mwah* (note that it's virtual - no germs were spread)

So sorry that you are feeling so crappy, Marie. I can't believe you got all that done with a cold...I am such a wimp when it comes to being sick. Feel better soon!

The only thing I enjoy remotely is the sensation of a lost appetite!
