|I find it hard to say I am sick, I want a day off. If I can drag myself to the office and work with a 50% capacity, then it’s ok to come and stay at the office. Time passes slowly, so slowly I can hear it dragging its body through the room I’m in. And it’s been only 2 hours. Another deadly 7 (at least) coming.
K has a different take on this. You are wasting the company’s time if you go to work when sick and also yours (instead of getting better, you feel like shit, being stuck at your computer). True both ways, I guess.
And now I remember that smart doctor telling me it’s all normal! Feeling sick is never normal, nor is any kind of pain. The normal state is pain free.
