    Oh believe me, I am just enough of a smarta** to make sure they know it pertains to them!!!

    Considering there's only 4 of us in the main office and one I have known for 12 years and is a very good friend, process of elimination will make sure that they know who its aimed at!!!

    My peeve is that my husband whose been sick for a week has now shared it with me. I HATE being sick. I can feel it starting in my chest and I'm all achy.
    I have a lot that needs to be done this week and all I want to do is lay down.
    I have been taking Airborne for several days now and hope that it at least keeps it short lived and not as bad as his was.

    Ive seen those type products (Airborne) in the store, myrosiedog. Let us know if it helps shorten the duration. I never tried those products before.

    I have used both Airborne and Trimune all winter at the FIRST sign of getting sick and it has kept me from developing the full blown sickness, so I think they do work.
    What hubby had was especially bad and I started taking the airborne after he got sick hoping to keep it away, but I can feel it starting. I hope it shortens the duration.

    But I do think these products work well most of the time as this is the first time I have been sick in over a year with a cold type thing and I've taken the stuff at the first signs and it has kept them at bay. Hubby and daughter have gotten sick, but not me and I am usually the one that is constantly sick.

    I have also used Airborne and in some cases, I never get the cold or whatever it is. Sometimes I still get it, but it is much less severe than whoever I caught it from. It really does work. The trick is to start taking it as soon as you've been exposed to the illness.

That happens all the time around here! "Nope, wasn't me, " is a favorite excuse among my co-workers. To me, it sound eerily like "Not my job", and that is a huge pet peeve of mine, not to mention bad for business.
    Oh I know what you are saying. I get that all the time and the proof is right in the record with her initials after it. WTF??? Just fess up and admit you were wrong. We already have the proof

    I don't know why people have such a problem saying they made a mistake, they're sorry, and move on. Nobody wants to take responsibility for anything any more. It doesn't matter if it's murdering someone, a car accident, or a simple math error. Nobody is perfect. If you make a mistake, suck it up, admit it, try to learn from it, and move on.
