Just because YOU are sick (with a virus no less, not something that can't be passed along readily, just because YOU "have meetings all afternoon" even when you could call in for them, just because YOU like to be at least 5 minutes early for every meeting, especially our boss, just because OUR boss is amazingly on-time considering his ADHD, just because our coworker (Kiss-up Manager) is the one with Boss currently and she always takes extra time, this time legitimately, does NOT mean you get to hang out and over MY cubicle!
For the 7 minutes you waited, sick, standing over MY cubicle ledge.
And started asking me questions so okay, fine, ask, but at least see if I'm in the middle of something first. I finished and talked w/ him, NewGuy, but I finally said I was working on something, in hopes he'd sit down to wait. He walked around. Ah, gee, great, let's spread the germs ALL over.
Another coworker and him were sharing over the counter drugs at MY cubicle, earlier. She left early for the doctor Monday, but otherwise kept working (thankfully for me, yesterday in another location, and I otherwise really like her).
ARGH ARGH ARGH. So now my head is starting in, and my nose is running.
If you're sick and you're going to insist upon coming INto the office to work, can you PLEASE not hang out in MY area? I can't afford to get sick, and get my DD sick (who is to sing the lead role in Cinderella in a few weeks). What if I was still caring for my father? Something like this could have killed him.
PLEASE at least attempt (or pretend) to be courteous. Sheesz.
A few coworkers are working from home today, as they are sick.
(And, if NewGuy is going to still show up at least 5 minutes early all the time? Fine, others do, shrug, but don't get antsy at 1 minute after the start time, too, please, and yes, be respectful that I may be doing work, too, at that moment, cuz I was though I'm also happy to assist him, otherwise as needed. And, when I say I need to talk with Boss first about something? Don't go into Boss' office, also, as what I have to say may not be for his info, too, yanno?)
Mostly, DON'T GET ME SICK. I like being well.
* note -- NewGuy wasn't sure he'd get paid if he went/stayed home, which comprised some of the questions he had for me. (He would be paid,and may stay home some of tomorrow.) I can emphatize (sp) with that dilemna. Just, please, add some courtesy and don't go socializing so much!
