Writer's Block: Quarantine Etiquette

The holiday season happens to overlap with cold and flu season (and not just the bottle flu). When you get sick, do you go to work or school anyway, or do you stay home to avoid spreading your germs?
I don't get sick very often (knock on wood!) but when I do I decide whether or not I'm going to work based on how I feel. Sometimes it feel good to acknowledge to yourself, "I would be worthless at work anyway so I'll be doing everyone a favor by staying home." When it gets to that point, I drop any guilt of not coming in to work and feel content just staying in bed.
