Today, I am death.
Actually, I’ve been feeling sick since Friday.
I was at work when I felt that tickle in the back of my throat. That soreness waiting to come out. Then, it all crashed down on me. Full on nose battle with coughing and nausea coupled with lack of sleep.
It is now Tuesday, and I am still feeling it. The Sick isn’t a full on 10 anymore though. It has calm down to a subtle 5, but that nausea finally made it’s full on debut today. Conveniently, right before my shift at work.
If you don’t know me, I rarely call out of work. That place can get so messed up if one or more people call out I feel bad being the one doing it. Every time I call out, I fight with myself about it the whole time leading up and the whole day after.
Today, I don’t feel as bad though. I went to Urgent Care on Sunday and they told me to take a few days off of work so I have my excuse (and subsequent paperwork). But calling out two days in a row is almost unheard of in the retail industry. Unless, you’re really sick.
So long story short, I hate calling out of work but for my better health I must do it.
