are you kidding me? I’d totally complain to a manager. That’s completely unethical. But, since it’s your BOSS’ child…could you drop an anonymous note to HR?

We have work from home abilities for this reason! I know we are far and few between, but uh, ridiculous.

Man i’m annoyed for you! We just got a “flu brief” this morning and my bosses now have the rights to send us all home if we’re infectous.

That is crazy!  Hasn’t your boss heard all the tips on the news about not spreading germs?

Yeah that’s so horrible!  I don’t want to made sick by you or your children.  If the kid isn’t well enough to go to school, they certainly aren’t well enough to be tortured by having to sit up and be alive at your work!

If you could, I would say something to the HR manager about this.  I know our office is being really serious about H1N1 protocol.  Our HR manager would be livid if she knew that someone brought anyone (themselves included) with a fever into the office.

If I were you, I would go home.  I would explain that your health is fragile to begin with and while your boss, for some reason, cannot work from home to protect the health of everyone else, you can at least look out for yourself.  See ya!

UGH!! I would be SO pissed!!  Try to wash your hands a lot so you don’t get sick for your wedding.  Maybe you should call in sick in a few days and mention that your symptoms are the same as the kids 🙂  I’m sure there are plenty of last minute wedding things you could get accomplished with a day off. 

We are pretty lucky that we are strongly encouraged to stay home when sick and it’s usually what people do.  I know some people who work in hospitals and the rule they have is that they have to be fever-free (without medication) for 24 hours before being allowed to return to work.

Honestly, I feel the worst for the poor little kid! She needs to be in bed… especially if she’s THAT sick! Yikes.
