It’s National Sick Day

A survey done a couple of years ago found that the first Monday in February is the worst day of the year for employee absenteeism. Apparently people stay home from work in droves because of post-Christmas blues, crappy weather, and the prospect of not having a warm weather vacation for another six long, dreary, plodding months. If you’re reading this at work, sorry to hear that. If you’re reading it at home or while lying on the beach, Happy Sick Day! But please, you have the day off, get off the freakin’ computer.
