Being Sick is the SUCK!!!!

Rate this Entry
So I'm on day three of having to sit at home and watch movies on demand. I will share the lovely tale of how I came to this boring state.

On Tuesday, for my 1 o'clock appointment. I had a very routine internet install. Nothing major, all the lines were there, the house was already hooked up so the effort I had to put in would be minimal. This young woman had 2 children, both boys. I thought to myself, "shouldn't the oldest be in school?". "Oh well." I thought, "maybe he isn't old enough for school yet." He appeared to be around the ages of 5 - 6, so the possibility of him being too young for school seemed logical.
After having made sure all the connections outside were intact and up to par, I grabbed a a wireless modem and headed inside, a spring in my step because of how nice the customer was and the fact I could get caught up on some paperwork. While hooking up the modem and inputting the WPA2 Code (encryption) her child was basically my shadow. Even when I was kneeling down showing the customer her SSID and password, the kid was no more than 2 inches away at all times.
So, I finish the install, everything went according to plan. As I am leaving the house, I hear the customer say "ok, Rusty, (made up name) time to go to the Doctor!" She sees the confused look on my face and replies "Oh, he's been home for the last 4 days with the flu."
So here I sit for the last 3 days, having to call in sick, all because of that act of hospitality. On the bright side, it did give me a chance to catch up on some great old flicks, (the jerk, coneheads, etc). So I leave you with this thought..." He Hates These Cans! Stay Away From the Cans!!"

    If you want to look on the bright side, at least you know how you got sick. I got sick most likely from some Typhoid Mary on the frappin' Subway in New York. Here's to us recovering quickly!
