For most of this week. I've been sicker than a dog. The worst of it is it could have been entirely avoided if the powers that be at work were rational. "Everyone must have a doctor's note for even a one day absence." So what do people do? Come in when they're sick, because no one goes to the doctor the first day they are sick. Just enough to ensure that the whole herd will eventually get it. But "TPTB" apparently can't calculate the true cost to the bottom line to doing that. "gee, is it better to have a few people out sick a few days - or guarantee the whole herd gets it and is miserable and bring productivity down overall?" I now know who will vote for Nobama. In my 34 years in the work force precisely TWO employers would make a point of sending people home if hey were ill.
Will the guy who SHOULD catch the flu get it? Probably not. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping he would. Where's that Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Sign when I need it?
Get your shots early this year, I feel like I've been at death's door most of the week.
And I hope anyone who has St. Therese of Lisieux as a patron had a fine feast day. I'd wanted to make a post on he first, and post a nice picture of a St. Therese statue I inherited from my grandmother. It's chalk, cheap, dinged up, and at least as old as I am. I love it because of what it is, and from whom I inherited it from. I'd post a pic, but I haven't the energy yet. Maybe on the weekend.
