Corporate America- Sorry for Sharing My Pink Eye

Both of my kids are in daycare full time. They either catch or carry every virus/infection known to man.

This week, I’m lucky enough to have caught pink eye. Given my workload, taking a day off would have been frowned upon. And let’s be real parents, I have to save that call off incase I pass it on to one of my Littles.

Sorry colleagues, but you will have to be around me as I’m super contagious. Blame our no sick day policy.

Everyone stresses that if you are sick you should stay home. They mean that until you’re actually sick. When you are actually sick, it’s always an inconvenient time. Aside from vomiting, I will always be at work sharing!

  1. There really should be mandatory sick days, especially when people are contagious. It just keeps the cycle of sickness going. That’s actually how my whole family got sick this year. My sister’s coworker was forced to stay at work and ended up getting the whole office and probably everyone’s relatives sick since it was during the holiday season. Something really should be done about this.

    1. I agree 110%. I get that there is work that needs to be done, but when you’re not feeling well you’re not working at 100%. Then you risk getting everyone else sick. So now everyone is less productive. When you are sick enough to really need to stay home and you call off, they make you feel guilty.
