    When most of us get sick, we go to the store and stock up on the Tylenol, Theraflu, juices, Kleenex, & the like ...and then we proceed to go about our daily lives without further adieu...

    Then, there are those who have to make a Broadway production about their temporary misfortune... The overtly loud coughing & sneezing...the whining & complaining ...There are those who will even start a message board thread about their predicament.

    What do you think compels these types to be so obnoxiously boisterous about the way they're feeling??
