Not counting colds, anyone else here almost never get sick with something like the flu ? In my 10 year working career, I think I've taken less than 5 days off when I was really sick. I believe that the last time was about 8 years ago when I got bronchitis. What's more, I haven't puked in more than 10 years, the last time being when I was senior in college the day after a bar crawl. The last time I puked because I was sick was in 1990 (which is the last time I think I had the flu). the last time I even came close was like two years ago when I drank about 5 beers and 10 glasses of champagne at a wedding reception. I dunno, I guess I'm just venting because I feel I get "cheated" out of sick days that I never take or forced to feel very guilty when I call in sick to play golf (hope my boss isn't reading this ... ) I wish my job would aggregate vacation, sick & personal days into just "personal time off". I'd be a happy camper then as it'd mean I'd get like 5 weeks vacation every year.
