During the later part of last week I started to feel a bit sick. Nothing too bad so I continued to go to work. Now I’m looking down at a Monday with several meetings and wondering if I should call in sick.
I remembered an article on this recently in the news and I dug up a copy (see here). What really got my attention is than half of all people believe they got a bug from their office. So why do we go to work when we know we are not well? In a nutshell, we feel guilty to let down our ‘team.’ My question are you really letting anyone down when you infect everyone else and cause even more production loss for the office as a whole?
So today I think I’m going to try and break a trend and call in sick.
