My boss brought his daughter to work today because she has chicken pox!

OMG!  How can he allow this?  Everyone here has children and not all our children have been exposed to the virus.  He KNOWS I have an 80-90 percent chance of getting shingles again if I'm exposed to the virus.  I had severe shingles several years ago and missed almost 4-5 month of work.  It bothers me that he never takes his employees health into consideration when his kids are sick.  He's brough them in with pink eye, the hand, foot and mouth disease, and who knows what else!  I've lost vision (electicity ?) in my left eye, and still suffer some damage when I had it on my face.  UGH!  I guess this is my week of venting!

That's awful!  Can you report him to the HR department or anything like that?  It's plain rude and unconsiderate.

your boss is gross.  but you can't get shingles from exposure to someone with chicken pox.... a person with shingles CAN give  someone who's never had VSV (chicken pox )  the chicken pox  but it does not work in reverse......  if you have bad shingles it was from prior exposure to varicella...and stress causes the out break  

cant you call the labor board?

Really? I was told by the doctor that diagnosed me years Ago that I could get another outbreak if I were to be around anyone with the active virus. Maybe it was before they had more facts. But he did tell me to take the rest of the day off. I was suicidal when I had it. It was the worst pain I'd ever had!
