So, I got sent home from work today because I work with a crazy lady!
I started coming down with a cold on Monday night but I just thought it was allergies, by Tuesday I had the sniffles, and when I woke up yesterday I had l had a super awesome head cold (very congested and phlegmy). I called in sick yesterday, stayed in bed, and popped the Nyquil. This morning I was doing much better, still stuffy and a little bit of a cough because of the phlegm so I decided to go to work because I have dealines I have to meet.
Mind you I do not have any influenza symptoms; no fever, no chills, no body aches, no vomiting, no diarrhea. I've NEVER been to Mexico, none of my friends have been to Mexico in the past month, I HAVE A F*CKING COLD!
Right before lunch today my boss says she needs to talk to me...okay. We walk down to a conference room and she tells me that the lady who sits in the cube across from mine talked to her boss and was concerned because I was coughing all morning and that I was out sick yesterday. She said she is worried I have swine flu?!?!?! Are you sh*tting me??? She got to go home because she was worried about me and I went back to work.
My boss is cool and agrees this lady is crazy and is embarrased to even have to ask me to cover my mouth when I cough and to wash my hands. Really is this necessary? So then 1 hr later she informs me that I have to go home. I'm just at a loss for words and I can't figure out how this happened. I'm just mad yet laughing.
I've only been at my job since Aug of last year and they don't give you VPN access unless you've been there for a year or if you are suspected of having swine flu!!!! Ya that's right I got sent home and I now have VPN access so I can work from home. I work with over 1000 people I wonder if anyone else got sent home.
Sorry this is kinda long and I'm rambling, I'm just blown away by this crazyness. Part of me wants to laugh, part is mad, part of me now thinks this lady I work with is a whack job.
What are your thoughts?
