Not much of a video game post today, though I'll tie it in at the end.

I was at work yesterday, minding my own business and generally just doing my job (checking in on the Game Informer site as well at times).  We've got interviews for a new position scheduled today, interviews that I was going to take part in.  I was feeling a bit tired, but nothing too much.

Our office manager mentions that he might not be able to come in today and take part in the interviews because he's come down with a cold.  We all immediately start moving away from him, but evidently I didn't move fast enough.  Sure enough, as the day wore on and I came home last night, I was feeling it too.  That stuffed head feeling and body aches that indicate "yes, you have a cold."  As the night wore on, I started feeling more and more tired.

Needless to say, I'm not at work today.  In fact, I'm going back to bed very shortly.

In this day and age, how can people NOT know that, if you're feeling a cold coming on, or something even more contagious, you don't go to work?  Why would anybody at your workplace want your germs?  Inevitably, somebody's going to come down with what you've got, and then the whole office will be happy with you.

Most jobs have sick days.  USE THEM!

Now I've got his cold and the office is what's suffering.  (You know, because I'm so awesome and everything).

Sorry for the rant, but I just had to get it off my chest.

As for the video game tie-in?  At least I'll have some additional time for Red Dead Redemption when I wake up again.

Silver linings, they do exist.
