A lot of people have been sick in our office this winter, some of them have worked through there sickness and others have been so sick that they haven't been able to come to work. I always try my best to come to work no matter what but if I have the flu I stay in bed.

Yesterday a couple of people in our office were sick and one person actually called in because they couldn't drive in the snow. Mmmmm, a little understandable but odd at the same time. It made me think about all the lame excuses I have heard over the years as to why someone couldn't go to work. I remember one time in particular when a co-worker told me they couldn't come to work because Mercury was in retrograde! What??
