The commercial opens.
A man, looking somewhat frankensteinian, arrives at work.
He's a little green, and his nose is twice it's normal size.
Everyone is staring at him, because he actually LOOKS like
the way he crap...
He sniffles. He's sweaty.

This man has the flu! And this dedicated employee toughed it out, and made it to work.
BUT WAIT!!! A quick trip to the break room, a dose of thera-flu.
Now he can hang out all day.

Or the man, on the bus, looking the same as the other guy..
PUBLIC transportation..
Wheezing, sneezing, coughing.
Someone hands him a Thera-flu strip, and he's good-to-go.
Off to work, then ride the bus back home.

You are SICK, you are CONTAGIOUS.
STAY HOME!! You're shedding virus all over the place...
No matter how indispensible you think you are, they can live one day
without you, at work.
Or, is it better to show up, make THEM all sick, so you can spend a say at work without half of them!!

Thera-Flu makes me sick
It just might make you sick too!

Try Tamiflu. If you don't take it at about exactly the same time, every day, or miss a dose and then take the next one, it seriously screws you up. I had to finally just completely stop taking it, because I got so sick from it.

Thanks Zaphod,

But I have a feeling that you didn't really read my rant!

Raw garlic will cure you of anything, taken in proper amounts. I know it smells really bad and such, but it is an excellent antioxidant and works wonders against bacteria and some viruses.

I read your rant, spacedoubt. Funny and true. Alleviating symptoms doesn't make one non-contagious.

Thanks Grady...For reading it..!

I'm particularly sensitive, because I'm in contact with many people a my workplace. Their workstations, keyboard, mouse, etc...Some are just complete SLOBS, and I know they don't wash their hands..

There seems to be an unspoken guilt trip, makes people show up.
When they really should be at home, with a vat of chicken soup, a funnel to eat it, and a Leave it to Beaverthon on TV.
