I slithered into work against my better judgment today because I have a huge meeting at 2 p.m. that I'm running.
I feel vile. I have spent the majority of the morning in the bathroom. Short of wearing diapers to my meeting (sadly, I almost contemplated buying Depends), how can I get through this two-hour roundtable without it turning into a literal shit show (pun intended) ...?
Go home. That's what sick days are for. Your coworkers don't want you there infecting them.
Go away scat troll.
Imodium AD. Go get it NOW, Tell anyone who needs to know why you're leaving the building that it's a medical emergency and you have to run to the pharmacy to pick up meds. If you take it soon you should be ok by the time of your meeting.
Cinnamon tea works too, but Imodium is going to work better, and faster
Can you have an assistant handle the meeting? Can u go home and use Skype or some type of net meeting option?
Even with Imodium, your nerves may not hold out.
I forsee a new Butterfish thread.
People who show up to work despite being sick are selfish. There's such a thing as teleconferencing, duh.
Get up on the conference table and ask your co-workers if they'd like to see your awesome impression of a chocolate soft-serve ice cream dispenser. It's a light and humorous way to liven up a dull meeting.
