Still Here

Eh, I don’t know where the days go anymore. It seems like all I do is work and sleep work and sleep. I know somehow that that’s not truly the case but I can’t seem to figure out where the rest of the time goes. Anyway, keep on checkin’ in because I haven’t gone anywhere.

So let me tell you about something that irks me…
Parents who send their kids to school sick.
Atleast 75-80% of the kids at school have been sick over the last two weeks. This could technically be considered an epidemic. On Monday we had almost 25% of the school population absent on one day. The unfortunate thing is that most of those kids returned the following day hacking, coughing, sneezing, and puking.
Why? I ask.
I feel like I need to wear a gas mask to work and collect hazard pay.
Now I know that the parents side of this is that you can’t always take off work to stay home with your sick child but there has to be some other solution than sending a child with a 103 degree fever out the door to be looked after by the teachers. They’re just going to get sent home anyway. So why not keep them home in the first place rather than sending them to school for a few hours to infect everyone else?
I say we close the school.
In the meantime i’ll be off buying more bottles of hand sanatizer…
