Actually, if you have a runny nose then you have a cold. If you have the flu you'd be coughing. Cold involves throat upwards, flu involves throat downwards. Both have body aches/fever etc.

@#101 Influenza and the cold virus are two completely sets of virus strains. They have similar symptoms in the beginning, but the flu virus will knock you on your ass fairly quickly. You also may not get every symptom listed for the flu. The two most recent bouts of flu I had involved no coughing and low body pain, while my fever raged and the cold chills seemed insane.

Uh... having a runny nose is a called a cold. The flu is a hell of a lot worse than that. You get; body aches, chills, headaches, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, along with the typical cold symptoms, coughing, runny nose, and a sore throat. When you have the flu, you're out of the loop for at least two days.

#101, Having a bad cough is not the flu, not if it's not accompanied by the other classic symptoms. Having a bad cough is a bad chest cold, usually from an upper respiratory infection like bronchitis

Sure it can be, but many people used to work their way through college, 40 hours a week. She's just being lazy; she should be pitching in and helping with SOMETHING at least...

Yeah, college or not if your SO (or in this case husband) is sick you help them out, and they'll more than likely repay the favor later on

Im not excusing the wife, but dont act like college is nothing. college is just as hard as work. You need to have a serioua talk with your wife, but dont act like work is more important than school

You're missing the point. OP has to do all the work and has the flu, so they obviously feel like shit, and the wife is just sitting on the couch watching TV and making no effort to help out OP.

That depends all on what his job is. What if its labor intensive and he comes home after a hard day of work of that and then has to work more. What if this happens a lot? Are you telling me that's fine?

11- the wife wasn't studying, she was watching tv all day. Also how do you know he doesn't take his work home with him? Doesn't state his job. These things aside, he has the FLU. He should be in bed and his wife should learn some compassion and get up off her lazy ass and do something to help.

I wonder what world or workforce you don't have to take work home with you in that sounds nice. I would LOVE to be back in college sooooooo much easier!

The difference being that "full time" in regards to college is as little as 12 semester hours (which are usually only 50 minutes, not 60), so your point that you don't take work home with you is nullified by the fact that you aren't in school 32 hours, whereas that's the minimum for work to be considered full time.

Actually, #133, as a full time student I spend an average of 12 hours a day going to class or working on campus. Then I get to work when I go home too. I'm lucky if I can get 7 hours of sleep at night, and forget about having any hobbies. Please, continue to talk about how college is less life-consuming than a job you get to leave behind once you clock off.

I'm in my final semester of college and its killing me. The last two semesters I have had major assignment after major assignment, mixed in with quizzes, tests, exams and even a few presentations to do. It's both mentally and physically demanding and draining and I can't wait for it to be over. To help with my future career I do a lot of volunteering and helping out with my school and the community (I'm getting into law enforcement). That said, anytime my girlfriend is sick UFO to her if able and help her with anything I can even just bringing her soups and tea and cuddling with ner for a bit if that's all in able to do. I would never let her try and do everything when she was sick, especially just cause "I'm tired" your wife is just lazy and inconsiderate. She should understand that is her job to take care of you when your sick just like its your job to take care of her when she is sick.

I am on round 2 of university. I have done both the career and student gig full time. Being a student is far more tiring and stressful than working. I am also a single mom so do everything everyday, sick or healthy - so no real sympathy but OP's wife sounds like a bitch.

#149, how about when I started a business, for the first 3 years, I worked 80-110 hours a week, 60 on the business and the rest at other jobs working to earn enough to support my family and business. That's me telling you how life-consuming starting a business is in the real world.

No one said starting a business isn't hard, but that's clearly not what OP is doing. He's working 8 hour days, and saying being a student isn't as exhausting. Don't get butt hurt, your situation is clearly different than the type of job I was referring to. I hope your business succeeds with all the effort you put in to it.

You can look in the Bastards' Household Handbook to find "Standard Operating Procedure" under the subtitle "Operating Procedures." If you need help finding the subtitle you can look in the table of contexts and the subtitle should be on page 17, if I do recall correctly.

DocBastard, I've been married for 15 years in July and I never treat my husband this way. EVER. A woman that withholds from her husband is just punishing herself. I feel sorry for you if your wife is doing that routinely.

fun fact, each person in a relationship is obligated to have sex unconditionally with the other. If one makes sex a reward for chores, the other person should seek a relationship with someone else.
