Fun with Numbers

*cough* *cough*

For the first time in over five years, I called in sick to work.

Yesterday and Today.

Yesterday, I was truly ill - vomited in the shower, bad aches all day, really sore throat, super tired....slept all afternoon and vegged in front of the TV all night.

Today, however, I feel much better (still sore throat, slightly achy), but feel so good about having a whole weekday off during the holiday season to get things done that I just continued my 'ill' days.

I don't feel guilty about this - I work over 40 hours per week on the average, I'm salaried, and I have a great work ethic most of the time.


Do you feel guilty for not being at work when borderline 'sick'?

Do you consider it 'cheating' if you clean your house and run errands while taking a sick day?

Would you rather a coworker come into the workplace and work, or stay home and not risk contaminating the entire office?

Should I organize my closets this afternoon or finish my Christmas shopping?
