Have you tried calling your Doctor?

I think the woman who sits around the corner from me just coughed up a lung. Seriously. She has been coughing all morning and sounds terrible. About 5 minutes ago she stopped and since I didn’t see her walk by I honestly thought that she must have coughed up one, or even both, of her lungs onto her desk and died. I actually got up and walked over to see if she was OK. I looked but there were no major organs on or around her desk so either it/they were under her desk or she just plain old stopped coughing. What WAS on her desk, however, was a carton of orange juice, a box of Kleenex and two bottles of Robitussin cough syrup.

To the coughing woman: this is why we have sick days. Please don’t come in if you sound that bad. I don’t want to catch what you have nor do I want to hear you. And I also don’t want to be so concerned for your well-being that if you actually do stop coughing I feel the need to stand up and walk over to make sure you’re not dead. Thank you.

Get some of that AIRBORNE stuff, my boss swears by it when he travels. Maybe she used all her sick days playing hookey and now has none left, damn her for playing hookey!
