Has your job ever made something mandatory that backfired? Did you get your flu shot? I didn't :-)
I work at a hospital (NW is what we call ourselves. We're off the NW freeway)which this year decided to make it mandatory to get the flu shot. If you refused you have to wear a mask for the entire flu season. Since I don't like being strong armed, and haven't called out since I started here two years ago, I refused. I didn't care for the hostile way they approached us about getting the shot. Also, I've had the flu shot before and it makes me sore and feverish for weeks on end. Now the mask is supposed to be a punishment..oh I mean alternative to the shot. I guess they figured we'd get tired of wearing it.
However, I find that I'm having quite a bit of fun with this. I've taken to running into the ER, throwing my arms up in defiance, shouting "Occupy Northwest!" and running off again. I also put mustaches and other odd objects beneath my mask to amuse my friends. I've also realized that I can wear my tongue ring now without worry about getting in trouble (Who's going to see it?) HEHE!
