Sickos

I'm sick today. I have a sore throat, a cough, a headache, sore eyes and runny nose. But I went to work anyhow. I could have taken a sick day, but that would have meant more work for everyone else. Should I have stayed home?

Imagine you work in a workplace where, if a co-worker is sick, that person's work is divided among the rest of the people present. If a co-worker is sick but able to come in to work, should he or she come in or stay home?

He or she should come in and work anyhow, it means less work for the rest of us.

He or she should stay home (and keep his or her germs there instead of bringing them to work.)
