Why go to work when you are sick?

I think that we have created a monster of the society that we live in. I went to work today despite having a big juicy cold, battled through it wondering the whole time why I was there.

I went because Jeremy discovered I've taken 6 more sick days than he has, which struck me as being quite a lot of sick days. However, I do teach kids and he teaches adults, so I get coughed on a whole lot more often that he does. It's not my fault I'm sick so often if kids won't cover their mouths when they're hacking up their lungs.
