Swine flu, it’s everywhere… in the news I mean, but it is spreading in real life.
I don’t like it when I get the flu. I don’t like when you get the flu.
Let’s face it, I don’t like any flavor of the flu (swine, bird, or original blend).
With that sentiment in mind, here are some tips to keep the flu away from you (and me).
- Wash your hands.
- Cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze.
- Don’t your any of the sensory organs on your face (unless you are covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze).
- Wash your damn hands!
- If you feel like you have the flu, STAY HOME!!!
I’m serious about that last one. When someone walks into work “toughing it” through the flu, I don’t look at that person and think, “Wow… what an inspiring person.” I think to myself, “WTF are you doing here you self-important jerk! Go home before you get everyone else sick.”
I have a pretty impressive collection of influenza antibodies but I don’t really care to add to it. Keep your flu to yourself.
