You rock. You got yourself to work even though you don't feel good, and you're still there even though some of the reasons you went are not.
You totally rock.
I do agree with you about the hazards of being a grownup. Perhaps you could go home early and get some rest?
Depends on when Attorney One actually gets here and what needs to be done. If I can get through it quickly, I will try to get home early.
But I'm not counting on that.
I know you can't count on it, but I will hope she/he gets there soon so you can get some rest.
Best of luck, and speedy recovery!
*hugs* I know responsible me, she's a bitch. But usually right. *sigh*
*sending healthy thoughts your way*
With me it usually goes:
Sick me: I'm sick, but I'll live. I can go in to work.
Responsible me: Oh no, you're so sick you shouldn't go in and spread germs around causing everyone else to get sick and need time off. Go back to bed.
Sick me: Oh, okay then *shifty grin*
You know, that argument is really ineffective in law firms. Any illness not requiring hospitalization is expected to be shaken off. [g]
It used to be ineffective where I work. Then my manager, who refused to take a day off, passed his flu onto about 10 of us and at least half passed it onto their children.
Now it's very effective.
I worked at a place where one of the bosses would catch pneumonia almost every time he got a cold. Coming to work sick was a sin there.
Me too. Although I don't get paid time off 'cause I'm a temp, so it's even worse in my case. :/
get well sick you...
stop being so ... responsible... hehe
sometimes we have to though. :( booohoooooo for being all grown up and stuff.
This being a grownup thing sucks a lot of the time.
Responsibility? Sigh, responsibilities.
Hehehehehehehehehe.... given your icon, I find that comment GREAT, by the way. :-D
Must watch Tyler DVD's again s soon.
Anyone who knows that reference deserves to be friended. As the irresponsible captain would say, do what you want to do!
I can relate far too well to that today....
Heh... T'sa, a friend of mine back in Georgia and The Woman Who Wants My Body (because I'm pretty sure there's only the one, ergo it deserves a title) has a boss who is a NOTORIOUS hypochodriac. She's the OTHER end of the spectrum from you, I think. All she has to do is call into work and sniffle a little into the phone and he tells her to stay home. And if he sees her out and about later in the day, she can always say "Well, I TOLD you it was nothing, but you wanted me to stay home!"
Of course, working for your uncle is probably just like that, too...
I have that type of argument with myself, but usually the other way. I'll push myself so much when I'm sick and I should be resting that I have to convince myself that I shouldn't be doing things.
And, for heaven's sake, get some rest and get better!
dang, why is it responsible us (for responsible read evil robot us) always wins those arguements?
Hope you're feeling a little better
No, worse! And yet here again for another day of fun.
Oh dear... :(
Good on you for battling on, and I hope you're feeling better soon!
You did really well to go in despite feeling sick. I hope you start to feel better real soon.
Yeah, I hope I do, too. So far not improving, but that can't last forever.
