More on Our Weird World

And another thing, how come when we’re sick, we can’t just stay home and sleep until we feel better?

I am coughing and I’m achy. I’m also at my desk. It would take a lot more than that to allow me to hang home. I work for a small company – no one stays home unless it’s dire.

Besides, it’s like a crazy badge of honor to work when you don’t feel well. And you practically get a merit badge if you work many, many hours or multiple jobs. We have such a silly work obsession in this country. The more exhausted you are, the higher your morals. Or something like that.

Once again, why did we create this incredibly difficult world?
