I Hate Being Ill

December 6, 2007

I suspect I’m like most men in that I’m rubbish at being ill. I mope around, generally feel sorry for myself and will quite happily describe a head cold as “having a touch of ebola”. (For more examples of this just read Jeremy Clarkson’s book “And Another Thing…”)

I’m ill right now and I hate it. I should be on a customer site today but I can’t be so I feel guilty, I’m currently helping a partner in India resolve a problem as I can’t sleep, my house looks like a bomb went off in a paper tissue factory and I feel thoroughly miserable and it’s not even 07:30 yet. Sigh.

    You’re not alone. I’m sure most men will come out in sympathy with you on this one. Man flu is a popular complaint…but what you (men) don’t do is give in to being ill. You’re already working! You should really be relaxing in a hot bath, watching a DVD curled up under the duvet or be chilling out playing your Xbox…

    Now, I may be wrong on this, but in my book, if you’re well enough to masterbate to that degree, you’re well enough to work, young man !

    Hope you’re feeling better 🙂
