She could have been like me today: I started out the day feeling great. Had errands to run. As the day progressed, I started feeling "Achy" By the time I got home, I know I am coming down with something. I spent all day out today. I have had days where cold have come up THAT fast on me. I can be fine and three hours latter I can be feeling like crap.
Also I will NOT use hand sanitizers. Most have alcohol in them. I will NOT let my son go anywhere NEAR the stuff. Kids his age are getting alcohol poising from the stuff (the get on the hands then the kids eat something and ingest the alcohol)
A place where I used to work (and my mom still does) has a policy that when your 40 hours of sick time are up for the year, they are up. If you call in sick again, it is an UNEXCUSED absent. If you had 2 unexcused you get written up and put on probation. Get 2 more and you are GONE, fired. (this is a manufacturing plant) we joked (and it WAS a joke) that if she can down with H1N1 she would go to work, cough, lick her fingers and touch EVERYTHING, sneeze on everything and such. (like I said, we were JOKING. We would NEVER really do that) then when the manager asks why she came in she would say that she was out of sick time. If the manager said to go home, she would make them send an e-mail to her and the next level manager that it was OK to go home and would NOT be help against her. Sad thing is it would NEVER happen. You call in for ANY REASON (even if you were in a car wreck) (only the first day counts, all other days don't) after your 40 hours are up, you are written up.
