To go in, or not?

So I've missed two days of work, which sucks.
I woke up feeling not particularly better than before, but with a different galaxy of symptoms today (hacking cough, massive headache). I can probably medicate those away, and limp through half a work day. Should I?
On one hand, I might be infectious. I also feel like ass-on-toast. (soggy toast, at that) However, on the other, I get paid hourly so my sick time is unpaid. Plus, I've only been there a month, and I don't want them to think I'm a slacker. I'm just really, profoundly sick.
Some people have this work ethic that says you show up unless you're in the hospital. Others figure that makes no sense because you won't get much done anyway, and you might spread it around the office.
I'm torn.

I'd suggest calling your boss and asking. If you're still infectious, they'd probably rather that you stayed home. *g*

i take two days then get my ass in... if they don't want me there, they can send me home. I want the cash, even if it meens i'm sick a little longer.

I am sorry but I am going to have to agree and say you should go in and not because I am part Amazon either. I have been at this job for several years, am loved by 99% of the office and have almost never taken off 2 days in a row sick, yet when I did recently… I got shit for it from some of the partners.

Being so new, someone is bound to say something, even if you have to drag yourself half dead into work it is best to do so even if it just for show. They probably will let you go home when they see how bad you are and if they don’t then they deserve to get your germs! LOL

Try to take some Nyquil, yes it tastes evil and gives nightmares but it does a heck of a job on the flu. Also- take zinc and TONS of liquids to flush out your system.

Feel better!
Hugs and Kisses!

So what did you decide? And what exactly is ass-on-toast? LOL

I stayed home.
Every time I started to head out, I'd have a terrific coughing fit.
