I have talked to a number of folks over the last week or so, that "felt sick". When I asked if they were going to work, most said "yes", citing a fear of getting in trouble on the job.

Knowing that this will probably be one of the worst flu seasons, and that there is a shortage of "Tamiflu", the medication most often prescribed to fight flu symptoms. A lot of people would still go in to work... Leaving the rest of us, paranoid and constantly washing our hands. The biggest reason, was a fear of getting in trouble at work.

So, what would you do?
