PSA for Students #11

If you're sick, don't come near me. Call, email, IM, send a friend, send up smoke signals, just don't come in person to tell me that you're sick and can't work. There are a lot of plagues going around right now, and I'm trying desperately not to catch one.

Coming to me to tell me you have pneumonia is not helping. I don't need to see your pastey face and listen to your rattling breathe to get that you're sick. And if you had the stomach flu yesterday, don't come to work today, especially if you haven't mastered solid foods yet. Seriously, it's okay. Stay home.

Shit, Library X is already one big thriving petri dish without you sickos adding to it. Come near me again, and I'm gonna Lysol you.

Sometimes I think that the library where I work is really a government germ warfare lab. I have been sick four times this winter. One member of our staff had whooping cough.

Question, if you are the undead, how can you get sick...;D

Although I do sympathize. Damn cold and flu season. Decimated our library staff last week. I think we had a total of 5 people working all week.

j0m1n1n, whooping cough? Where are you--the 1920's?

tor hershman, up the snout? Do you have any nose hairs left?

librarianwoes, lancing the boils sucks, doesn't it?

Nike, vamps can get sick. We get very sick, and we get very grumpy. That's why my co-vamps tell me to stay home. Not b/c I'm contagious but b/c I'm a bigger bitch than usual.

Pneumonia has a U in it. I am only working today because one of the other part-time librarians is sick. My boss wanted us both to come in, and I could just hold down the fort if she started vomiting. I emailed to ask her PLEASE not to come if she's sick - and either she's well enough to be here, or she's not. I see no point in being the barf patrol librarian.

Fixed! Blogger no long will check my spelling. I think because it's that bad.

When I was MUCH younger and first started using the internet, I was highly confused when viruses were mentioned. I thought they were something from the computer could give me a cold.

Now I know they just give headaches.
