If you are sick, stay home. Just let's see some proof, is all.
Most people don't usually run to a doctors office to treat a head cold or a stomach upset. So would you rather have them puking and sneezing in the office, or running off to run up a medical tab? I am willing to bet that, unless you are dealing with hypochondria, 90% of the of the illnesses this covers are the stuff that is treated at home with over the counter medications. It would be kinda hard to get a validated medical report on that stuff...if not nearly impossible to even get a medical appointment. Would a half-empty bottle of Asprin satisfy you as adequate "proof"?

Exactly. I have be on the verge of death before I go to the doctor. The last few bouts I have had with a bad case of influenza have been in the bed, throwing up, popping flu pills, and groaning a lot.
Maybe I should have made audio tapes of my groans and saved a sample of my vomit for my employer's scrutiny.
