Sadly though I work for a really small workplace and they can't cover my three shifts this weekend. Sadly this means I have to sit outside in the cold from 10pm-7am, 9pm-7am and then 6pm-1am. I can't call in sick because everybody else is ill.
I can't work indoors as there is no room for the cloakroom indoors and working behind the bar I think would be worse as I'd be moving around whereas the cloakroom I can sort of sit around and do nothing.
I've been dosing up on paracetmol, vitamin C tablets and orange juice, drinking lots of water and hot drinks. Has anybody got a temporary quick fix that I can use till I can get to the doctors on Monday.
Btw, I'd just like to have a mini rant about the NHS in my local area. The NHS advertises that there is a local walk in centre that actually closed down about 5 years ago. I've spent the last two years trying to get onto the local list and each time they've said there is no room. Go to this place. Then I go to the place they tell me to and they say that I'm out of the catchment area. I finally managed to sign up after throwing a MASSIVE strop in the doctors' surgery yesterday and when I asked for an emergency appointment they told me to "come back sometime next week and queue".
