A good chunk of the office are out with some sort of lurgy today. It's fallen on me to fly the Kotaku flag and try to stop everything from catching on fire in their absence.
What does it take for you to call in sick?
Here in Australia, too many people will soldier on through whatever is ailing them, spreading it to their colleagues and making everything worse.
Me? I'm working from home. If I'm not passing out on my keyboard then I'm probably okay to keep going. This year was particularly bad, every time I got over the flu I came down with another strain that kicked my ass in a different way.
How about you? Do you make proper use of your sick days or are you the sort to tough it out?
