I don''t usually rant (maybe now because of fever) , but currently, I''m seriously pissed off.
The reason, why : last week some idiot from my work decided to come to work, while being clearly ill and... he managed to infect nearly half the
department, including myself. To be honest, personally, I would fire that guy.... Even if he wanted to work so much (even despite illness), the office
hours are flexible and sick leave is paid. He could easily have stayed home, take a sick leave and he really wanted he could have worked on his
project at the same time but no... he just had to come.
To be honest, I truly do not understand why people are willing to sacrifice their health for their workplace. Money can not buy back health. I know
people, who work physical jobs, who are not able to work without taking painkillers. They are just killing their body. Sooner or later, the effects
will come out and I could not even imagine the pain they have to go through, when they get old, but well, that is another story.
This case is about diseases that can infect others. I remember, when I was at school, the biology teacher (one of the most intelligent and interesting
persons I have ever met) suggested students to stay home even with common cold, simply because there is possibility of infecting others or the cold
getting worse. Well common cold might be okay to work with, but when one has high fever, they should seriously take a leave. It is incredibly selfish
act of coming to office, knowing you might infect everybody else, causing health problems for others, while financial loss for the company.
Now, I have to reschedule whole next week, because deadline is coming, my training regimen is ruined (league matches are starting in couple of weeks).
I was just planning on having simple weeks, everything was going according to my plans and now the short-term effects will be all over my life : work,
social life, training.
AND ALL OF THIS, BECAUSE OF THAT IDIOT.
Just wanted to vent myself out.
