    We get 'personal time' to use as we wish.
    It certainly can be used for sick time.  Sounds pretty good, right?
    Wrong.
    If we're sick, we do get to use 'personal time', however, we get demerits because we didn't plan the personal time.  Forget about doctors notes, forget if you're in the hospital, it's a demerit.  After a certain number of those demerits, and you're out on your a**.  So much for sick time.
    Bottom line, everyone comes to work sick and spreads their germs and infects and re-infects everyone else.
    Now that really IS sick time.

    I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!
