    No offense, but given the current flu scare, my opinion is that the responsible thing to do would be to call off, not come in. If you're going to stay, exercise the utmost caution and wash your hands like a maniac.

    I still remember watching a film offered by the health dept., and when we came to the part where the voice on the film said "if you are sick you should stay home so as not to contaminate anyone else, I'm sure your employer would understand" the room broke out in laughter, including the guy from the health dept.
    It's a great thought, and the right thing to do, but I have a hard time believing it's the norm, especially in the smaller joints.

    I left it up to the GM, He could see I was sick but still wanted me to come in......There's the right thing to do and there's the things you have to do.... I will do what ever it takes to get the job done and not leave my crew high and dry......of course I'm taking as many precousions as possible, washing hand, finding a dark corner to seclude myself...ect..

    I'm with you Fryguy.
    I expect I will cover my next 3 shifts after I die.
    I know I've posted this before, but it always pops in my head....
    ...I'm reminded of the Farside comic, where there's a picture of a sinking ship, next to it is a liferaft with a couple of sailors and the captain, and on the bow of the ship is a cook, and the caption reads "I wonder if that's really true, the cook always goes down with the ship?".

    In my experience, it's really true.

    don't have to be sick and eat that get well chicken soup. A healthy person can eat it and get better and stronger. This chicken soup is great for women after labor.
