Use your sick leave

I returned to work on Monday after an extended leave. One of the emails in my inbox was a notice that a certain section at the job site was short of employees due to illness. Later that day an employee from that section came to my office. I overheard her tell my boss that she had been sick and apparently passed her germs to her work colleagues. She mentioned that she didn’t get the flu shot (because she became sick in the past after a flu shot)  and ended up getting the flu.


The flu shot is provided at no charge at my job. If you elect not to take the flu shot,  that’s your choice. But if you get sick,  use your sick leave and stay home. Don’t make everyone else sick,  forcing everyone else to use their sick leave.
