So today I found out I’ve been potentially exposed to pertussis. By exposed I mean this person has hack coughed in my face for a full minute. Ok whatever occupational hazard, my vaccines are up to date. But then I ask my manager if I call in because I have whooping cough does that absent result in a mark against me she said yes. Her reasoning being I’ve have 6 absences this year (5/6 were strep). I told her I would make sure to come in with my whooping cough.
