The Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, or even electronically.



This virus is called Weary Overload Recreational Killer (WORK).





If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues, or anyone else via any means whatsoever -DO NOT TOUCH IT.





This virus will wipe out your private life completely. If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises.



Take two good friends to the nearest store and purchase one or both of the antidotes - Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.





You should immediately forward this medical alert to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

Received this from a friend that likes to take off from work to brew.

CDC Notification- Important!!!

The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta has issued a medical alert about a highly, contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically.

This virus is called Weary Overload Recreational Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues or anyone else via any means whatsoever-- DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.

If you should come into contact with WORK, you should immediately leave the premises. Take two good friends to the nearest grocery store and purchase one or both of the antidotes-- Work Isolation Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system. For those not able to take the above antidotes, chocolate and/or ice cream work very well at fighting this virus as well.

You should immediately forward this medical alert to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.

I just took a new job. I was self employed, and before that, commissioned sales, so never really had any "sick time" with pay. The new place offered me 2 weeks vacation, 5 personal, 3 sick, and 2 personal. You use them or lose the them. I will probably save at least 2 weeks for the fall. This is fun.

"Hello, Mr. Bossman? I'm going to take a sick day."

"I'm sorry to hear that. What wrong?"

"I have an eye problem.

"An eye problem?"

"Yah, I just can't see coming in today."
