Your sick kid(s)

Posted By on Mon, Jan 8, 2018 at 11:09 AM

FOR THE LOVE OF SOME DEITY AND ALL THAT IS HOLY, please heed this message.

If your kid(s) is too sick to go to school, THEY HAVE TO STAY HOME. With the exception of going to a doctor office or a walk-in clinic or, heaven forbid, the ER or the IWK, then STAY THE HELL HOME. Don’t take your sick kid to the grocery store.  Or to Walmart, where they play with the toys. Don't take your sick kid to sit in the waiting room at _____, because then they play with my kid, who isn't sick right now. Don't take your sick kid out to eat at a restaurant. Don't take your sick kid to the indoor playground. Don't take your sick kid to the salon to get a hair cut.

If your kid is too sick to go to school, THEY HAVE TO STAY AT HOME, IN BED, UNTIL THEY GET BETTER. This is not fucking rocket science. TOO SICK FOR SCHOOL = YOUR KID STAYS HOME. I do not want to get sick.  I do not want to get my family sick. I do not want to miss time at work, lose any wages, or have a lower immune system, just because you are stupid. —Service Worker Who Doesn’t Want To Get Sick
