“Sick out” or?

Apparently a huge number of RT mechanics called in sick today. Could it be valid? Call me a Pollyanna, but the cold, rainy weather in Sacramento right now tanks. And in my office, the heating is not optimal, so we have people wearing parkas in their cubicles. Get cold, get sick. Cause and effect.

If I were working in a dank garage twisting stuff on a bus engine, I might catch a cold too. But then again, I just may be “sick” of my contract or “sick” of how management is running things. I might also be “sick” of not having decent health insurance.

If that’s how it works, maybe I’ll just call in sick to the presidential elections. That might help things. As if.

    People calling in sick to Presidential elections is what got us the last 7 years. In light of what’s happened, it’s kind of scary to even joke about taking one’s right to vote lightly.

    On another note, I’ve been taking a ton of RT lately. It rocks surprisingly hard, especially with state-worker subsidized tickets!
