I'll say I admire your work ethic as long as the three days were due to illness. but honestly this was kind of on your manager as well. you shouldn't have been handling food or working around food if you're sick, and he/she should have been paying attention and sent you home. but honestly, think about it next time. would you be thrilled if your waitress dumped stuff on you cuz she was so sick she was dizzy? probably not, just take another day off.
Greed is good. Or so you might think. Your desire/need for money trumped your common sense that should tell you handling the public's food while disease-ridden is a bad idea. If you didn't lose your job on the spot, you're definitely one step closer to it. Plus, you also damaged your restaurant's reputation by being so thoughtless.
If you were sick you should've stayed home...I'm sure that if you were sick those first three days that your boss would understand.....well if they were smart and not a complete jackass...so....I think YDI for going to work as a waitress handling food while sick. If you weren't fired next time use a little more common sense.
Some places you can get fired for too many days missed even if you have a Drs note. Or that's how it is at the call centers in Canada anyway :/
