This is the third week that my boss is ill. First the doctor thought he had the flue but after more than 2 weeks he still has a fever, so the doctor says it must be another virus but they don't know which one !!
In the mean time I have to do all the work in the office, mine and his (there is only the 2 of us!)
Not funny !!

I just got totally 'flamed' on a Yahoo list. Really insulting, vitriolic response -- when I know I was behaving very properly.
I know it's beneath my dignity to respond and engage in a war of words with a nasty piece of work - but the temptation is so strong!
I'm hoping another member will leap to my defence...

That's the downside of being on lists sometimes isn't it? :( Sorry to hear you've had trouble. From observation and experience, the person with the most restraint and ability to keep his or her cool and remain polite, always emerges with the moral high ground. :)

Souvent entre piez de chevals

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Think I might be getting sick now too. I'm going to try to go to bed early tonight.

Thanks and yes, you're right. It's silly: why should what some stupid stranger who probably lives thousands of miles away and who I would probably despise if I met them says bother me so?
Thankfully, here on this wonderful board we have no such problems.

I'm feeling better, but my little girl is sicker. Thought she was on the mend from this darn virus. Taking her to the doctor later this morning. Poor baby. Though actually she's in pretty good form, it's me and my husband who are upset.
