I guess maybe this poor fella ran out of "well my dog got run over.. again" excuses, who's going to believe the SARS one?
 
2003-04-09 10:58:49 PM
Nice. So...Is the Canadian welfare state going to pay the bills for the company's lost income, and individuals' lost wages...or is the asshat who came to work sick going to be billed for it (laugh)...or is the company just supposed to "suck it up and deal"?

They ought to gather around and beat him to death.

"Reports say he didn't die of SARS, but of traumatic stupidity."

I hope this guy isn't from Brampton... that would make me ashamed...

"Historical accounts inform us that the initial spread of SARS was spearheaded by asshats."

from "After SARS" to be published in 2015.

I haven't read this thread yet, but I'm betting that guy was from Brampton. Sounds like something those blokes would do.

As a result, 197 people who worked with the individual from March 29 to April 1 have been told they must go into quarantine.

From what I read the co-workers weren't infected, just told to go into quarrantine. I'm not defending the guy because I agree, he is the perfect example of an asshat.

"state" quarantine order? WTF?
 
2003-04-10 04:03:04 AM
So does this qualify him as a terrorist?
 
2003-04-10 04:03:09 AM
sounds liek the guy was forced to work though
 
2003-04-10 04:08:40 AM
"Preston Manning decided to show up at work at Liberal party HQ. However, Mr. Manning is not a Liberal."

"The infected employee, a French Canadian, when asked why he went into work said 'Maudit Anglophones, their Canada might inclue Quebec, but my Quebec does not include Canada! Tabarnak les autres!'"

Freakin' T-Dotters...y'all need to pay attention to instuctions!

state quarantine order?

state quarantine order??

state quarantine order?!?!??!?!?!?

What's next, you Americans going to hang our flag upside down or forget the words to our anthem?

No wonder everyone hates you.

<i>Dr. Sheela Basrur, Toronto's medical officer of health, said her officials have had to obtain one mandatory order and issue about 20 "stern warning" letters to back up the isolation policy. Many of the letters, she said, were sent to employers who were demanding that employees ignore the isolation policy. </i>

Perhaps this guy's company forced him to work, despite the quarantine. Therefore, if ~200 people are taking a 10 day vacation, it's the company's fault.

Forget the words to your anthem? LOL. That will never happen. Forgetting implies that we at one point knew them!

Isn't it obvious that they mean state as in "church and state"? More specifically, "the operations or concerns of the government of a country."

Don't get your longjohns in a bunch, eh?
 
2003-04-10 04:33:18 AM
Forced to work or not, the guy knew he was potentially endangering the lives of all of his co-workers. Same as if your boss told you to continue working even if your job was to sell cars you knew were dangerously unsafe. Sounds like egregious lack of concern for human life. I'd say the guy's got about 200 counts of attempted manslaughter coming, if not a few cases of actual manslaughter if things go badly.

Hahaha.

Cerebus..."attempted manslaughter"? WTF is that?

Christ...you think this is farking Ebola or something?
If you're old, weak and chronically ill, you have something to worry about. If you're reasonably healthy and have a functioning immune system, about the worst that can happen is that you'll be really sick and then get better.

Will you people please stop behaving like this is the Black Death? SARS = a bad cold. Influenza, West Nile virus, Dengue Fever each kill more people every year than this shiate.

"Forced to work or not, the guy knew he was potentially endangering the lives of all of his co-workers"

My bosses always think I'm lying, I'm like, 'ma nob ea chogged, im ick, can gome da werk toaye' "Look you down for 2:30 you have you have to work, its part of your job requirement!" 'bub im ick!' "ill see you at 2:30"

Oh, and I work with food by the way... mmm.. would you like snot on your steak or no?
 
2003-04-10 04:41:06 AM
Yeah, which is more than we ever got from those freeloadin' CANADIANS...



.........Canada SUCKS!

My bet is he wasn't popular with co-workers to start with.

Do we need a CANADA tag yet ?

Feh...I chew SARS and spit it out.
 
2003-04-10 04:54:11 AM
I've seen people go to work with worse. Unless the employees get this as paid vacation without using sick days, there will be people going in with all sorts of diseases.

If the government truly wants people to stay in isolation, they need to offer some sort of benefit for doing so. I certainly don't say that it's deserved. It's simply that there are more than a few people who need or think they need the wages from every day of work badly enough to ignore anything short of ebola.

As retaliation for the Canadian bashing, I am immediately removing my Canadian Flag from my backpack, replacing it with an American one, running around Europe shouting "You're next, baby" and making bomb dropping and machine gun noises at everyone.
Take that. Fair turnaboot for all the Americans over here wearing Canadian flags, trying to pass themselves off as canucks so they don't get beat up.
 
2003-04-10 05:26:46 AM

Beat up? ha! That's not the reason. I've seen Americans beat the shiat outta Europeans on a number of occasions.

The reason for the Canuck flags is because German and French girls won't give it up unless you're a "peace loving human"-- they're just trying to get some.
 
2003-04-10 05:41:12 AM
Hey, when you've got a perfect attendace record to keep alive, you can't let a little SARS ruin it for you.

You Canadians have an anthem?
 
2003-04-10 05:43:28 AM
Is it something along the lines of 'America Junior, the beautiful'?
 
2003-04-10 05:48:43 AM
All I remember about the Canadian anthem was that it had something to do with sausage and aunt Larry.


I love pickin on ya Canada :) Its all in good fun. Just like how I pick on my little brother.. who happens to be retarted.

"Will you people please stop behaving like this is the Black Death? SARS = a bad cold. Influenza, West Nile virus, Dengue Fever each kill more people every year than this shiate."

It not that SARS is highly leathal (it isn't) but that its highly infective. It is worse than a bad cold and if allowed to spread unchecked can bring a country's health system to its knees.

Dont forget that the 1918 flu epidemic killed more people that WW1. Not to be sniffed at ;)
