The Malaise of PTO Days

Those who think the US workplace is safe from coronavirus have never sat across the cubicle from a flu stricken coworker out of PTO days. 

During my years of cubicle exile, my desk has been a magnet to attract loud talkers, big sneezers and “Boy am I sick, but I used all my PTO going to Cabo! (Hack, coooough, blow)” Apparently the virus has not clicked “read and agreed” to the HR manual.
