I have to report to the airport in less than four hours and I think I've got the flu. Started feeling a funny throat at 4pm and had a temperature and the chills by 6pm I can't find anyone to pick up my trip tomorrow. I KNOW I should call in sick, but I can't afford the penalty points on my work history. Yup...we get disciplinary points for being sick! So...since I've scoured (without success) my United contacts for someone to pick up my trip, I guess I'll be flying tomorrow, breathing flu germs on all the passengers. Great. Something is wrong with the employee system that doesn't allow sick days without penalty points that affect your work history...am I wrong??
