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?
When you have a bad cold, but you're able to get out of bed (with discomfort) do you usually go to work/school or stay home?
Does your workplace (or school) give you the option of sick days?
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?
