I am one of your fellow citizens. I am one of your coworkers. I am one of your classmates. On behalf of a host of germophobes, I have a favor to ask you.
Stay in your house. Call in sick. Skip class and let a friend take notes for you. Dont come near me.
Dont you have any manners? Dont you have any sick days? Dont you have any gumption? I dont want your communicable diseases.
No shopping spree, work project, or school function is important enough for you to have to leave your home and bring your walking pneumonia, your stomach virus, or your scarlet fever with you. As important a cog as you may be to your respective machine, your illness makes you temporarily ineffective and inefficient Dont take unnecessary risks that can damage your character.
And another thing. Dont look at me like Im the monster when I run away from you and refuse to look in your general direction. You, the infirm, are the perpetrator of bad manners. Although I admire your willingness to share, your gift is one that I will not be accepting. I see nothing rude about my declining your infected offering.
So please stay home and rest. The world will find a way to continue to turn during your brief absence.
Your pathophobic neighbor
