The Downside to Working in Education

The Plague.

What was I saying about being so heartily employed a few days ago?

Oh, right, job security and nonsense.

That is all for now as I return to my fetal, fevered curl under blankets, and curse the sick, germ-ridden students who care so much about writing that they came to class sick yesterday and Tuesday.

I know your pain. I worked in retail once, and was around a lot of children. I was sick every other week for nearly a year. I think I developed an immunity to a bunch of stuff though. I suppose you could look on the bright side and consider it exercise for your immune system. LOL

Hope you feel better soon! :)

Maybe if you have the authority, next time, tell them to stand in the hall, you will mark them down in the book [from a distance] and send their butts home. And tell them to e-mail their assignments to you, so you don't have to touch their snotridden papers.

Oh BLECH. Or shall I say, I am reminded of the Oobleck in Bartholomew and the Oobleck. Feel better soon!

I hope you feel better soon. Mustn't complain about work as some of us are not so gainfully employed! Hopefully you get paid sick days. Apparently, my company doesn't pay them except for statutory sick days which is required by law and one can only claim with a Dr's certificate. I need another job!!
Hope this doesn't ruin your weekend. x

It's like working in a petri dish, for sure. Take care of yourself

Get well soon. EVeryone (almost) I know is down with "the bug." I had something last week - so I feel your pain. Hot liquids and stay warm!!!
