Seriously? You believe the best place to pick at your fly bites and scabs is at the bus stop and on the bus? Not only were you picking—not scratching, but full on picking—your fly bites and scabs, but then you were wiping the blood onto your legs, arms and the bus seat. Come the hell on! How were you raised? No one wants to see that shit. It's disgusting. Then to top it all off you start sneezing with your yap wide open spreading your snot and spit all over the place for all to enjoy. Thanks so much for that. The topper to all of this was the huge wad of spit you graciously left on the side of the street before getting on the bus. Grow up and get some manners. I feel bad for whomever had to sit next to you on the bus.

There are signs everywhere in the medical clinic stating that due to H1N1, they no longer have magazines available, you are to remove any brochures you read, you need a mask if you’re going to cough, and you’re expected to use hand sanitizer when you approach the reception area to “protect yourself and our staff”. All seemingly reasonable precautions, until you actually approach the reception area.

No hand sanitizer visible behind the counter, no staff wearing masks, Plexiglas window all the way open with the receptionist with hands all over your health card and paperwork is hacking up a lung, sniffling, sneezing, and blowing her nose all over the place! Then she starts doing a mailout to patients about their new waiting room rules –and she’s LICKING the envelopes!


They don't allow you to call in prescrition refills, so I am stuck in this freaking Petri Dish getting covered in Lung Butter until my overworked Doctor can come out of a room with a visibly ill guy, not wash his hands, and hand me a germ-laden prescription sheet...

So a few weeks ago when I had H1N1 and took some time off work I nearly lost my job for missing time... and no one seemed to think H1N1 was really a big enough deal for me to be off sick.

This bitch is to the media for scaring us all rather than informing us, and to the hypochondriacs who are taxing the health care system because of it. I have been bed-ridden for 10 days with the company of the dreaded pandemic that is coursing through the city's misinformed veins. I went to the over-run flu assessment centre and was sent on my way after a 5 hour wait and a two minute consult with a nurse because my sore throat, fatigue, cough etc. did not seem "severe enough" to be treated. Was it because I was polite in acknowledging how busy you were? Two days later I was gasping for breath in the hospital with a rising fever and the most painful coughing fits I've experienced in my life. I have no note for my professors from the hospital because they don't write sick leave notes for H1N1(I'm guessing that it's because...???). I wonder how many more people are being screwed out of proper health care and the treatment they deserve during this flu season due to misinformation. I'd also like to thank all of you people in the clinics who were giddily chatting away on your cell phones with plush colour in your cheeks, engorging yourselves on bags of fried food, no cough, no fever, and no apparent symptoms other than the ones in your heads... And now there's someone trying to tell us that we're infecting our pet cats??? Thanks a lot system. The fear mongering has really benefited us all.

I am tired of seeing all these status updates on my facebook from friends claiming to have "terrible colds", followed by descriptions of "fever, can't breathe, etc". Sorry people, a "bad cold" is usually the flu, and it is most likely H1N1, that's all that's going around right now that fits that bill.

Why do people continue to insist that it's just a cold? Anybody else noticing this? It worries me knowing that these people will write it off as a cold and then not stay home to avoid spreading it.

So if you haven't noticed, it's COLD & FLU SEASON. Please don't go to the pub or bar if you're sick. Especially the incredibly obvious sicky hitting on us Friday night. Sneezing then offering your hand out to shake, hell no. Leaning in to tell me your name while you suck back your mucus. Nasty. I'm sure half of the dancefloor is now infected thanks to you, asshole. Should've maced you with my mini bottle of hand sanitizer when I had the chance.

I have read the original post mentioned in the title, and all of the posted comments, and I'm still amazed that people can be so ignorant. I'm not referring to the ignorant as in slagging someone, I mean the kind of ignorant that comes from not having clue one what your talking about. And what I fined even more appalling is that some of those who left comments claim to be members of the Canadian Forces. To those alleged CF members, you don't get to bitch about the military in a venue such as this. Apparently you've forgotten your PAO (PAFFO for you old timers) briefings which clearly laid out where, when and about what your permitted to speak about. I will say that there were one or two comments I read that were actually accurate, in particular the one about military personnel not having the right to refuse the shot if ordered to get it. That is absolutely correct. CF members are obligated to follow lawful commands, and getting the H1N1 shot would fall under that obligation.

Now, for my bitch, and this is directed to "Captain Underpants" who made the original post. You are quite possibly the most uninformed carbon based unit on this planet. To make such an asinine comment about the Reserves only supporting their country one or twice a month clearly shows you have no idea who the Reserves are and what they do. The fact that your a civilian does not excuse your ignorance. If your going to make comments in an open venue such as this, might I suggest you pull your cranium out of your anal orifice and do some research. And if your incapable of that then do everyone a favour and keep your uneducated, moronic bull shit to yourself. You have a nice day.

So I read in the Chronically Horrid yesterday that the Halifax Regional School Board is cancelling exam exemptions because they don't want students coming to school if they're sick...

Apparently if kids have a high attendance rate (less than 6 unexcused absences per term), many schools allow them to choose one exam per semester that they don't have to write.

Most schools have 4 terms of 2.5 months each. Taking into account things like inservices, weekends, and holidays, that's about 55 days of school. SO if they miss one day every 2 weeks without a note, they can choose whatever exam they don't want to write. (I assume that if they have a note, and most of them can forge a guardian's signature by the age of 12, that's an "excused" absence and doesn't count as missed time).

Well when I went to school, we were expected to go to school every day, AND write our exams. All of them. And if we failed, we failed. These kids today have it too easy. I say, "go to school, AND study, AND write your exams you entitled little bastards".

No wonder they ask for a starting wage of $10/hour at their first fast food job...
