So I'm at work right now. I've been here for an hour and I am sick. It might be the plague, but it's probably just the flu. I'm congested, my head hurts, have a sore throat, am having difficulty swallowing, have a runny nose and I'm lethargic and dizzy whenever I walk around. Should I go home, or should I stick it out?

You should definitely go home. Rest is the most important thing you can do to recover from an illness. Also, you don't want to spread the flu around to others at work...you'll make some enemies that way. :)

I think you should go home and rest until you feel better. Too many people try to work when they're sick, and they just end up getting everyone else sick. The employers should see to it that you are able to go home and take care of yourself. Have a nice cup of tea with honey and lemon. That should help you feel better.

I think you should go home and maybe even go to see your doctor. Most places would prefer you go home rather than staying at work and risking getting other people sick.

An old boss of mine said me me that he would rather I went home if I was sick, as I was infectious and would spread the bugs to the other staff. I think he was right, and I think you should go home before you spread the flu to your colleagues. Get home, get yourself to bed with a hot lemon drink and some paracetamol, you may well feel better in the morning

I hope you went home. Your co-workers can do without you infecting them with the flu. It's highly contagious.

I hope that you went home. Its better that you not spread whatever it is that you have to your co-workers. I know when I'm even the slightest bit sick my boss will send me home so we don't spread it at work to the kids and to the other who work with me.
