You heard it here

Who: Me, obviously... What: um, not quite sure...I was standing there opening a box of dayquil when Kris walked in Where: my office When: 9:30a.m. Why: I'm supposed to be here. We don't get paid sick days. How it went down: Kris: "Dude! Who bit your eye?" Me: "Huh? What are you talking about?" Kris: "Your eye man! It looks like someone socked you one!" Me: "Are you serious?" Kris: laughing "YEAH! Go look" Me: "WHY AM I EVEN HERE?!?!?" *sigh* I should have known something was wrong when I decided to eat fruit and have tea for breakfast.

Poor mouse. Have a piece of cheese and that Dayquil and shut your office door for a nap. You get paid for those, don't you?

Not getting paid for a certain amount of sick days is stupid. It makes people go to work when they are actuall sick and it spreads to everyone else.

Damn girl, feel better soon :)

Jen said...

I agree with Angie's rant...but I too have unpaid sick days and can't really afford to take days off...especially when I am going on vacation next week and have a crappy vacation pay schedule as well...

wait, when did this become about me???

Switch the dayquil with nyquil and knock yourself out for a few hours!!!

Aww poor mouse. I hope you feel better. Curl up under your desk and nap.

Unpaid sick days? To be honest, I didn't know those existed. Does that mean you're not salaried, or do they actually subtract from your paycheque?

I just can't believe a company could be that mean to its employees. And, as others have mentioned, how could a company be that short-sighted, risking lots of people falling ill because people feel compelled to come to work? Ugh!

I will never take my sick days for granted again. Poor Marie! Feel better, girl!

Hope you are feeling better.

PS I'm a closet MTV lover. The Hills, Tila tequila, Newport Harbour, I love it all. I can't help it.

As for being sick, hope you get better soon!

No sick days is insane. And a stupid business move. But, in all honesty, I usually go to work sick and use sick days to pay hookie. Unless the migraine kicks in...

I hope you feel better soon!

Mary needs a cooler name... said...

Definitely go for the Nyquil.
Sometimes drugs really are the answer.

And get better!
