    I literally cannot call in sick with my job. Luckily no cases tomorrow and hope to be good by Monday.

    Bullshit. With all due respect, you are not that important.

    I was sick last month and now I'm coming down with something new, because my throat has been sore for a day or two. Shite.
    And of course had stomach bug two weeks ago, because my kid has to bring every epidemic home from kindergarten.

    The opposite actually- I am replaceable.

    Calling in sick and forcing the surgeon to either cancel a case or find another company is bad for business.

    Yeah, but "toughing it out" and walking into a hospital OR with the flu is REALLY bad for business.

    C'mon, they have those "Keep your diseased ass out of here." signs all over the hospital for a reason.

    Your company seriously doesn't have anyone to cover if you're out? I know there are two Chips that come to our hospital and fiddle fart with the laptop and the wires during spinal cases... the goofy-looking guy who I call "Chip Spackler" to his bafflement, and the hot brunette "Chip Spacklerette" who you can't tell is hot 95% of the time because she wears the goddamn OR burqa.

    Working in an OR really cramps my pervo style. Somebody needs to get on this, and come up with some skimpy, form fitting OR clothing for the gals. It's a huge problem, and I'm going to sit down and pen a scathing letter to the AMA* and the MOASSA** and demand action.

    Nothing wrong with spreading the flu to the entire OR staff and patient. It’s good for their immune systems in the long run.

    In that case the ex could be anabolic steroids personified.

    You not dead until the medical examiner declares you dead.

    I don’t recall giving my consent, but yes.
