When you're outsourcing a project to somebody, they're working on it and then suddenly they go missing and you end up losing your mind. You're bombarding them with emails demanding to know why they're not doing the project or why they're not returning emails. They basically vanish only to reappear a week or so later saying "Sorry I've been out of action with a bad cold!"
You're then demanding to know why they didn't return emails. Their response is "I was very sick!!!"
I'm just wondering for those of you who have been sick. Were you ever so badly sick that you couldn't come onto your computer to send out an email? Were you so sick that you were bed-ridden for a week or more?
Also, isn't it a worker's responsibility to call in sick? Which means inform the employer that you'll be out of action until you recover? How do you handle this when you're outsourcing work to 'sick' people?
