M for MC

Since i started working 2 years ago, i have the notion that Monday equals MC day. In case u are wondering what is MC (if ur really that diligent or innocent) , MC is medical certificate/ medical leave.

Every Monday comes, there will be people lining up for taking leaves. The trend is especially apparent in a clinic. No denying that there are real sick people needing an MC, there are lots of fakers too. Among some of the usual complaints they come with are abdominal pain, diarrhoea, fever, headache, vomiting, bodyache etc...things that cannot be checked physically...oops..did i say too much? :P Anyway those who can get away with it should just nominate themselves for best actor/actress award...We could only give everyone benefit of doubt, dont we?

Well, never occur to me that I become the one needing an MC today. Because i never took MC on Monday and im not one of those fakers. Was waken up by an intense abdominal pain around 3am. I could literally hear my bowels screaming. Water was gushing in and out in the bowels. As if they were making a cup of teh tarik. Made several visits to the washroom. It wasnt teh tarik in the end. It was more like chrysanthemum tea, in the toilet bowl..


So, anyone up for a cup of freshly brewed chrysanthemum tea? haha...happy working everyone :)

well, most doctors in clinic will just "cooperate" to give you an MC, since you are paying them treatment and medicine fees.. :p

@SK: the very reason why some companies only accept MCs from gov clinics. those cant be "bought" haha..
