Merry (you guessed it) Christmas!
« on: 09:47, 25 December 14 »
Lots of wishes for love and joy, everyone!..


I'm not a fan of "special" days as an excuse, but some times it's best to put down that CPC and go give a hug, or pick up the phone and let someone know you love them.


Well, unless you're a kid and there are two packages under the tree, a big cubic one and a smaller, long one (plus, preferably, a few smaller wrapped presents to go with them)!


Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas!


It's been some years since I registered here, and I'd like to say that they've been wonderful years and I expect more to come  ;)


Big hug for all of you!

Every Xmas, I just feel like my Stomach wants to explode at the end of the day - and this year is no exception.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Unfortunately I caught a cold, so my joy of having a few days off of work is greatly diminished. (Stupid co-worker had to return too early to work from his f*cking cold.)

@AMSDOS: No, you'd throw up in time, I guess. Technically there's the possibility of your stomach tearing and causing internal bleeding. Don't know if there have been such cases, though.

Ditto, sorry I didn't send my Xmas Wishes to earlier in my little Xmas Ranting Hissy Fit, so I hope everyone had a Good Xmas.

That's a shame. Sometimes I feel it's the Company rules which makes everyone suffer, cause if you take the day off work where I work, you have to see the Doctor and get a Medical Certificate, so when certain people are sick, they come into work. Though usually the things about Colds & Flu I think is normally you're spreading those around people you have the symptoms, though I'm not a qualified Doctor in that field.  ;D

I've thrown up before and it didn't happen yesterday, usually it happens with the heavier things like Meat. The lunch I had was fairly small with a little bit of Turkey, Chicken, Ham, Roast Potatoes, what was left of the Pumpkin & Peas with Gravy on top. But then there was all the Deserts - Pavlova, Brandy Snaps, Pumpkin Cake, Shortbreads, Trifle (which I didn't even get to), nobody managed to get to the Christmas Pudding or the Ice Cream.


So we got pumped up on puddings.

Well, the doctor sent him a week off to recuperate but he was still visibly sick when he returned. :(

Ouch. That surely sucked. Hopefully, you're now over that once and for all. :)

My big goal for next year will be not to get a cold or flu throughout the year. I know this will be awfully hard to achieve, living in a city has its disadvantages.

Should of been ordered back to the Doctors for the full analysis.


I find it odd that if your sick and advise work, they tell you to go to the Doctors, but if you don't you don't get paid sick leave (if you're full time), but they were telling the casuals they needed to go to the Doctors - either way they still don't get paid.
I just don't get this I'm sick thing and I'm still coming into work and the workplace does nothing about it. They should say don't come back until your better.

You on wages or a salary? I guess it depends on the company / industry etc etc.

This is what does my head in: (this could be psuedocode almost!)

IF im off sick for 1 day, that's ok - no need for medical cert and paid as normal etc
IF im off sick for 2 or more consecutive days - medical certificate is required. No cert? Then you have taken Annual Leave.
(some companies make you get a certificate if you are sick for 1 day on a Friday or a Monday  ;D)

IF my wife / kids are sick (regardless of 1 day or longer) and I need to stay home to care for her/them - I need a medical certificate. No cert? Then you have taken Annual Leave.

Now the thing is, all of the above come out of the same "pot" of leave called Personal Leave. So whether I'm sick or my wife is, it all is the same thing. So you can see how annoying this is, when you need to rush off to the doctors getting certificates because your kid is sick or your wife is in order to not waste your holiday leave.

So, some people around these parts tend to call in sick when really is it their kids/spouse that is sick... it is just easier with no questions asked. As long as it's just 1 day...

I've gone way off topic now, so  Merry Belated Christmas to all! and Happy 2015!
