IT"S MID WINTER HERE IN AUSTRALIA. BRR. AND THE SNIFFLE SEASON MARTYR IS SOLDIERING ON

Although it is relatively warm when compared to winter in some parts of the Northern Hemisphere, Like Alaska, Siberia and Minnesota in the USA, we still find that it is the rapid rise and fall in temperature which creates the misery of the winter head colds, influenza and the constant sniffles and watery eyes. The ave temp here on the Cent/Coast 5 cel- 21 cel midday, colder when we have winds from the South.
We all know them, every workplace has at least one, some have more-the office martyr.
The person although as sick as a dog, insists on coming to work and making life hell for everyone who has the misfortune to be there with them that day.
These people sniff, wheeze, cough and splutter their way through the day, moaning about how ill they are but how much a good example they are for coming in to work.
They leave a trail of infectious germs on every thing they touch, which in turn their colleagues are exposed to.
You will find them on the Bus or on the train Spreading infection to other travelers.
To all those who think they are "soldiering on", stop being a hero and a asshole, no one appreciates your self assumed martyrdom.
You are not a better employee for turning up for work, you are not fully productive when you feel that bad. Nothing at work is so important that it can't wait a day or two and if it is someone else will surely take charge of it.
You will cost your employer more by taking down other workmates and fellow travellers
with the coughs and colds you spread around.
Stay at home rug up and rest in bed with your favorite person or a good book, Its the best and only way to enjoy your predicament, remember catching the flu is a privilege.

I use to have a job and the boss
didn't care if you were sick
or not,he acted as though the
whole place would shit down.

He would say call back in an hour
maybe you'll feel better.
That guy was a real jerk.

eyes still burning,he's

people that's for sure.

Seeing a picture of you,
my eyes are still burning.
I heard someone saw your
picture and their browser
froze up.

You are one ugly man,no wonder
you don't have a girl,you have
bigger tits than some girls.
No wonder you call yourself
saby the creep,because that
picture of you is very very
creepy.

You couldn't pay me to look
at that picture again.
Oh the humanity!

Keshie: Do the children of Lagos still sing "Carter bridge is falling down", to the tune of "London Bridge is falling down" Or have they rebuilt it, and does the R/way station in lagos still have 16 platforms and only a single track in and out?
