Please tell me I am being silly?! I was sick 3 times during the night night and have spent most of today feeling nauseous, acidic and like my stomach's gone through a mangle. Even though I havent been sick today, there is no way I could have worked.
I've forced about a gallon of water down me and had a good sleep this afternoon so am feeling a lot better. Thing is, I desperately need to get some groceries - I have literally nothing to eat/drink in the house apart from stock cubes and crumble mix!
Is it unreasonable to go to the shop knowing that if I run into someone work related it could potientially look bad? Bearing in mind I work in a school so there are a LOT of people I could run into... Or am I being silly and should take the "I'm an adult, I can decide if I'm ill enough to work or not..." approach? My sick record is fine so I hope people wouldn't judge, but it just looks bad, doesn't it....? (Currently wavering towards driving to Sainsbury's 10 miles away...)
Thankyou witch, good point! alice - I did think about that but I really prefer to go and be able to look for the best deals in store (tight budget at the mo!) Also, I really need it today... I think I might bite the bullet and just hope for the best.
Oh or do the talc trick we all dd while still at school ( or whilst in employment if some of u are honest ) you know the one talc all over your face I had a spectacular fail with this one though when younger, forgot to make sure my lips were suitably whitened. The White face and bright red lips didn't quite have the effect on my mother I had hoped . However, you are an adult and are quite capable of deciding what you are and are not up for doing.
I have been in your situation, I have been "caught". I was told that while it was acceptable to pop out for a pint of milk, it was not acceptable to go to Sainsus. I did mention that I lived on my own, and had no food in the house for a week, but this did not help.
If you were sick 3x in the night and work in a school then you can't go into work today for risk of passing it on. However it is perfectly feasible that in the afternoon you could feel well enough to go to the supermarket.
