Apparently, there is some "thing" going around and loads of people are sick. The evidence is either unoccupied cubes or loud coughing that sounds as if they're hacking up lungs... you pick.
Obviously, I'm doomed. I'm taking bets who will be next out of the office because some loser in the vicinity won't go home.
So here's the dilemma - if you are sick, do you come in to work and hope you look like a martyr or do you stay home and look like a slacker?
