When you know you are too sick to ride BART

5) When you are sneezing so much that you need to use your sleeves to wipe up the drips under your nose every few minutes.
4) When you have an eye infection and your eyes are red with sticky discharges
3) When you are sucking snot and fluids back into your nose every 3 seconds
2) When your chest is so congested that each cough sounds like a small 2.0 earthquake and produces phlegm that you need to spit out or swallow back
1) When continuous strings of coughs from you prompts passengers next to you to ask you if you need the paramedics...which is what I saw today!!!

Please, all, stay home if you are contagious and ill. Work from home or call in sick if you can.

Who wants to go out like that? That is just gross.

Sooooo true. Yet, I think we've all been guilty at one point or another. Most (working) people in this country don't get sick days. Add to that forced shutdowns thanks to the state of the economy, and the average person has no PTO days left to be sick. Our society totally encourages spreading the germs!

Don't take BART to go to the doctor, either. (/sarc)
