I would hate me too

OK, you know that co-worker that got sick because I came into work sick? Well, she was out all last week. And she has no more leave, so she has to take half of it as leave without pay. I don't suppose there's any way I can make it up to her? I already asked about donating leave, but that's just not done. Oh, the guilt is killing me...

Blame it on the company. You were going to stay out but had to go in. It happens.

I would so blame it on the company. Why don't they let you donate there? people do it all the time where I work.

You can't donate leave? That bites! Evil Dead was out of my office for three days (not that anyone cared, I mean, hello, we call her Evil Dead) but it STILL wasn't enough. She came back yesterday and now my boss is out today. Oh wait...that's a happy story. Not the same. Sorry! Still - you did TRY to donate leave and that's all you can do.

Well, the place that manages kind of sucks. We're switching come Jan. 1.

And well, I didn't HAVE to go in. It's just when your boss repeatedly tells the story of when she had the evil flu and made it through a meeting to go home and be in bed for days, you think you have to do the same thing. I usually don't succumb to that, but my boss and I haven't been on the best of terms and I was trying to get on her good side. Stupid me.

My poor coworker keeps saying that she considers the flu her Christmas present. As I listen to her cough across the hall... :-:

It's ok though, I grew up with guilt and will get over it. Thanks for your comments.
