Uh, would it be in poor taste?

To spray lysol directly at the woman who sits next to me... who is the LEADER of our team.... who has come into work sick today? So sick that she stayed home yesterday and saw the doctor not once, but twice today? Keep in mind my Office Space type setting here.... a sea of cubicles.... I am one cough away from something deathly, that is for certain.

And while I've got the super duper cleaning spray out... would it also be inappropriate to spray it in the general direction of the sick kiddo who was just ushered straight from the dr's office to her mom's cubicle? Okay, I'm a working mom and I totally get the challenges of having sick kiddos (I mean, how often do I come here to chat about it?) But, come on! It's almost 4:30! GO HOME and take your flu-infested kid with you!

I never was a germ-a-phobe before...... but that was before Dallas (and probably alot of other big cities, too) started reporting so many deaths of children to different strands of flu. I stayed home with G-man yesterday until he was cleared to return to school (with bronchitis... not the flu... let me be clear!) I most certainly did not bring him to the workplace to get even sicker (and oh, yeah... infect my coworkers.)

Despite the deadline I was just handed that is due tomorrow... I'm going to scoot outta here around 5:30 and run home to safety.... where at least I love and care for the germs that are waiting for me. ;)

How inconsiderate of your coworker! I say get out the Lysol and spray 'em down! Hope you don't get the evil germs!

Oh my gosh- spray her! In fact get a mask and give it to her and you wear one too. I hope you don't get sick!!!

I agree - pull out the mask and Lysol. Some people just don't get it! Ugh

Oh no! We have told everyone to stay home if they are sick. Unfortunately there is a nasty cold going around right now, and we just can't stay home for a cold.

Keep spraying that lysol and get some hand sanitizer.

Good luck!

Do you happen to have a desk fan? I'd be pointing that thing right in her general direction in hopes that the germs would stay away from your cube!

Stay healthy!

Oooh, all good solutions! Yes, I have a fan, but you'll never believe this... she "borrowed" it once (uh, without asking) and never gave it back. So now it's contaminated!

Pulling out more spray and hand sanitizer now...

Thanks, girls! Y'all are the best!

OK- she borrowed the fan w/out asking and never gave it back?! Ok, this woman sounds like a nightmare. RUN fast! Get the Lysol wipes and masks. I feel bad you have this next to you.
