    Can the internet be used for anything else?

    TV isn't for watching whilst off sick. The internet is used to watch videos from such daytime tv proggies that go wrong,between porn and lolcats of course.

    ie: chavs telling Jeremy Kyle that he is a bad father on his own show.

    1. You feel like a caged animal.
    2. 4 weeks down on training (gym + bike) just got into a routine and getting in shape.
    3. Even turning on the PS3 is a chore.
    4. You can't actually take time off work because you HAVE to go in. F**kers :lol:
    5. Can't taste any food.

    On the plus side the prospect of getting on the bike is giving me hope :P
  • The wrorst thing about being off work sick is you're sick,unwell,unfit,feeling sh1te for one reason or another pertaining to the illness.

    Being ill is censored , I'd sooner be well and able to go to work. In the near future I'm going to be off work for about three months,am I looking forward to it NO. I am however,looking forward to having a fully functional hip though.

  • i was on genuinely on the sick once, but not ill (minor op recovery), so I went to the local for a few

    first day I thought, this is great, second day, bit tedious, third day, realised it was the same blokes in the same seats, same patter.

    work was great after a week off

    Full time dad! the kids are sick and i'm half way there, how i long for a "sick" day.
  • nevmannevman Posts: 1,611
    Some more reasons,
    6 theres no such thing as a coffee break
    7 the fridge is your only friend
    8 your at home with the wife (see 4 in OP)
    9 radio sucks
    10 the dog doesnt greet you, like the long lost friend you were every evening.

    Being off sick means they advertise and fill your position while you're off. Feckers.

  • Being off work sick is...........................the situation I've been in since Tuesday and it's censored . I'm on the mend now and should/hope I'll be back on Monday.

    I've been on here more than I ought to have been and I've finished reading "boy racer" good stuff, if you've not read it, get yourself a copy.

    Get well soon Frank ( I mean by Saturday), At least you've got someone to look after you, who'll cater to your every whim and be at your beck and call - after all, the weather's too bad for her to be out golfing ;)

    Being off sick is a sign that you're not self-employed.

    Must admit it's a "perk" :roll: of being a wage slave.

    I had 6 weeks off over the summer.

    It was rubbish after the first day as i was incapacitated. Had broken 6 bones in different parts of my torso, so i couldn't move and couldn't walk..

    First day back at work after the 6 weeks was good.
  • Not on sick but;

    On gardening leave as starting a new job in January, I thought brill a bit of time to myself. :D

    SWMBO disagrees, massive list of jobs to do before chrimbo, Ho Hum :roll:

    quite pleasant in the run up to Christmas - since I work in a shopping centre!

    What do I ride? Now that's an Enigma!

    Some early season man-flu might manifest and save me from the hell that is people returning stuff they don't like and buying censored they don't need. It's no wonder the country is in a right state :lol: I will retreat to the office and just look down on the frantically purchasing drones and plot my next bike purchase I think :)

  • I have never partaken in the tribal warfare that is the new year sales. Chrimbo is for total relaxation, bikes,beer,football and "ahem" nudge,nudge, :wink::wink: Know what I mean Gov'nor. :)

    Even Mrs Tank daren't challenge me on that one. 8)

    I prefer the PET scans - they inject me with radioactive sugar from a lead encased syringe and then put me in a a CT scanner me for 45 minutes, measuring which bits take up sugar. Oh and I'm not allowed near children or pregnant women for at least 8 hours as I am literally radioactive. Jan 4th will be my 4th one in 14 months. I can now sleep through the whole thing, it's so boring. :D
