    Default I feel sick

    Light-headed, tiredness, shivering, nauseous but can't throw up, a bit of a dodgy tummy, almost complete loss of appetite.

    Apparently there's a bug going around.

    I need a cuddle


    P.S. I'm still in the office, still working and still invoicing. All hail CUK.

    Man up you bedwetter!
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Have you gone Permie?

    Contractors are never sick (it says so in the terms and conditions you were given with your badge and gun.)

    The t&c's don't say that at all. What they do say is that a contractor should never admit to or give the impression of being sick


    On a slightly related note, a few years back I felt like I had a really bad chest cough and phoned the client to tell them I wouldn't be in that day but would definitely be in the day after.
    About 30 minutes later my wife was calling an ambulance for me

    Chicken.

    You should have gone into work and simply sat there, stiff upright. (Hint: Remember the Kipper sketch in Fawlty Towers? Be the guy in bed - except make sure your wife has put your final invoice in your top pyjama pocket.)
