Showing up for work every morning is already painful enough as is.
But when you’re feeling sick, going to work feels worse than punching yourself in the face.
It’s actually like an eight hour cycle of repeatedly getting punched in the face.
Here’s what it feels like to be sick at work, as told by Spongebob Squarepants:
The struggle is real from the first moment you step into your work place.
And no matter who you think you’re fooling, everyone can tell.
When your boss tells you to go home, you try to convince them otherwise.
But it’s very clear you are not okay.
So you try to pump yourself up for the day.
Maybe eat some breakfast.
Then you get down to business, but your brain just is not having it.
Even attempting to tackle simple tasks seem inconceivable.
The only thing you want to do is go home.
But you stick it out because hey, that money isn’t going to make itself.
All the while, your co-workers are treating you like the plague.
Because they certainly don’t want to look or feel like you do.
After all, you know you’re not doing too hot.
And after about an hour in, your boss knows it too.
Since they’re the ones keeping order in the office, they make the call to send you home.
At first you beg.
You pretend you’re fine, but your boss is not buying into your façade.
So they force you to go home and get some rest, which you secretly celebrate over.
Low and behold, as you’re packing up your things, you suddenly feel a million times better.
And once you get home, you realize work was never worth leaving bed for that morning.
Because at the end of the day, it would have felt a lot like this anyway:
And who wants that to happen?
