52 - uh, i would never want to be your co-worker. have you ever been sick? when you're sick, you don't feel well and are less productive. i doubt you'd be able to work properly for eight hours with a sore throat, stuffy nose and a pounding headache. and for the sake of your other co-workers, why would you come to work being sick? just so you can contaminate everything and get everyone else sick?
@70/ThinkPink--They never said they would not cover their co-workers or that working sick would be forced upon someone in real need. Op never said the age of her co-workers or what she did for a job. She might work at a place that hires a lot of students, or people with more than one job. Sometimes people cannot just work at the drop of a hat because you got sick. It sucks, and I hope they worked it out, but it is not the co-workers fault if Op waited until the last minute to ask them. I would not miss class because someone was sick, I have my own life and things I need to do. I also have a second job.
I understand what you mean but that usually isn't possible at smaller fast food places when someone "calls out sick" since there is not enough people available to work that particular shift, who will even want to come in and work, it's easier to find a replacement for your shift at larger restaurants that have more employes.
35, Your interpretation of what they're doing doesn't concern me. They may have just needed the time off to relax. What you think they should be doing with the time doesn't matter. 42, And what time would you be using to either organise your valentines day gifts/plans? Not to mention if they are working on valentines day they may have organised to go out that day.
Wouldn't you only need to be covered for today, though? It's only a cold.
Yup I am sorry alway seems to happen to those who really need the help...
Judging by your user name, a cold really isn't that bad to call into work for, is it?
Depending on your job, a cold is bad enough to call in for. I don't know about you, but if I was eating out somewhere, I'd much prefer cooks and waitresses who are not sick... Same with people who work with kids, or the elderly or in hospitals. Also, some people have weak immune systems. I think OP knows best if her body is up for it or not.
39- I agree with you completely! Anytime I come down sick, I'm down and out for at least a week. When I get sick, it's always bad.. Even if it is just a cold. And a cold is enough to call in sick. When one goes to work while sick, they are either being forced to work, or they're being selfish and not caring about their coworkers. If I were OPs coworker, I wouldn't want OP to come to the workplace and make everyone else sick! I'd, actually, be pretty pissed off if a coworker of mine came to work while sick. It's selfish and plain-out ignorant!
I know OP's type: that person that's "sick" every other day, and lazily emails people to pick up their shifts, then wonders why people get fed up with the crap and don't want to take them any more. Boo hoo.
Yeah FalconCrunch, because everyone who commeted under you is a slacker. Nice generalization and assumption, moron. For god's sake, man. No one here commented about their lifestyles and assumed "slackary" and one is a confirmed trauma/general surgeon. You're still an Idiotic fuck-shite...
