Working When You Are Not Well Still

March 23rd, 2014 by

A few days ago a person treated me to some KFC and I normally don`t eat from this place.  But for the sake of politeness I ate the chicken that was bought.  Not too long after I started to feel funny and it has been lasting for a few days now.   The only conclusion that everyone came up with based on all the symptoms I experienced was that the company sold bad/spoiled food.  Fortunately I usually do eat fairly healthy and so even though it doesn’t feel like I am 100% recovered it seems like my body is fighting it off good enough for me to not be say immobilized.

This got me thinking too where for myself there is no such thing as a “sick day” where I could see many people in a more traditional setting would simply say “can’t show up.”    Essentially, me saying can’t make it will mean other people that are relying on me will be immediately affected.  So usually that isn’t an option.  I guess thinking about this too that shows semi importance why even if you are working for yourself that it’s nice to have some kind of backup for those time where it probably would be wiser for you to take some time off.

I can’t remember I time I phoned in sick too even in an employee environment.  One thing is for sure, no more KFC’s for me.
