The Tale of the Flu

Today, my analyst B. called off sick with the flu. Every single person who works for me has gotten the flu now and lost multiple work days, largely because one worker who had the flu kept coming to work and wouldn't take the time off because they'd been informally counseled by upper management not to take to many sick days. Dumb and irritating. For want of one or two sick days, it cost the department over twenty sick days. "Excuse me, was the our foot we just shot because of bureaucratic stupidity? Yes, but it was only a flesh wound."
