I generally agree, but some people can't afford not to work so they drag themselves in when sick. They gamble that the probability of them screwing up or infecting others is low.

I completely agree Especially when you're working around/near food. I wouldn't want my waitress sneezing and touching my food when she's ill. OP, you totally deserve it -_-

I dunno how it is where you are but I only get 7 paid sick days a year before I have to take it out of vacation time. It's the first week of January and op has already been off 3 days, likely using half their yearly allotment if they have one.

I wait tables and you would be suprized how many waiters come into work sick not because they want to but is all about money. when youre working though collage you really need the money so you show up anyway it's all part of life.

Sure, people get away with working sick all the time. People are cash-strapped and/or inconsiderate @ssholes, neither of which are particularly compelling justifications. You're still doing something wrong. Doing this while working in food service is pretty despicable, despite how common it may be. If you're contagious, you're putting others at risk. Someone with a compromised immune system could possibly fall seriously ill, because of OP's selfishness. On top of that, OP put customers at immediate risk of physical harm due to her clumsy state. F the customers' lives.

were you sick the first 3 days or just skipping off work? in food services you should never work sick! you're handling food you risk infecting the customer. I assume you were fired so I hope you don't take another waitress job

Make up for what? His dick. Maybe it's just me, but it seems kind of weird to apply make up to that region of the body. Plus, I might be a little old-fashioned, but I don't see why a guy should wear make up at all.

You should have noticed that your illness is the kind that involves dizziness. I know sometimes it sneaks up on you, but I'll give OP the benefit of the doubt and say those 3 days misses were due to illness. Anyway, realizing the fact that you're going to be dizzy and heading for your job where you'll be on your feet, moving around and carrying objects such as hot chili? YDI.
