My company started a stupid policy to start measuring temperatures of their employees.
I have checked with my other friends who work in other US MNCs do not have such practice.
Perhaps, the management wants the security guards to have more work. Besides, after 2 major rounds of lay-offs, from 1k over employees down to probably less than 300 people now, the guards would be alright when it comes to their work load.
Yesterday morning, after taking a very 'THICK' cup of VICO drink for breakfast.
I realised that my body started to have some weird reaction.
I started to gulp more water as my throat was feeling really dry and sore. WORST still, I started feeling extremely cold; I blame the aircon!
Nevermind, I waited for 5.15pm to leave the office immediately.
Had a good sleep from 6pm-10pm despite, occasionally, I had my sister that stood beside while I was sleeping disturbing me.
Woke up and checked my temperature using the clinical thermometer that my previous company gave during SARs time:
I cant to go to work !!
I really hated to go to panel clinics as they have the worst doctors in the world.
I went in LESS than a minute.
Doctor: Please sit down . What's wrong?
Me: I have fever and if my temperature is > 38, I'm not allowed to enter the plant/office.
Me: That's the procedure that the company set.
Doctor: What else?
Me: I have sore throat
Doctor: Open your mouth. (he just used a torch light and looked) OK.
And that's all!!!!!!
I was given antibiotics and I'm refusing myself to take it.
I dont' need antibiotics! It's bad stuff!
All I needed was Medical Certificate!
And this type of bottle still exists??
Woke up today.
Hooray.. I will go to work tomorrow!
