Going down?

Had a headache and chills when I woke up this morning. So I called in sick. For the first time in over four years. I normally wouldn't. The Workplace of Tomorrow encourages you to use sick leave "appropriately" to avoid spreading duck flu throughout the population but they hastily add, "In the event of a RIF [reduction in force, aka: layoff] preferential treatment [presumably meaning those they will "prefer" to keep] will be given to those associates with perfect attendance records."

There's a guy there who has had two heart attacks and never used a day of sick leave. Well, I'm afraid their totalitarian mystique is beginning to wane. We're into the "Who Even Cares?" phase of the management team life cycle.
