    Infection in my eye cause it to swell shut and also caused an unstable fever. I went to see my doctor on Tuesday, she gave me a sick note for Monday, and for that day, and the next 3 days I just called in and asked for them to send me another one for the day.

    The best part of it all? I'm getting paid 100%, even though I wasn't at work. And the doctors visit was free. All part of living in Norway :)

    How do you guys feel about this? What's it like getting sick in America?

    Serious question, not trying to start shit or anything.

    No, I get 5 days per year to use . After that you either use vacation time or you don't get paid.

    ok i see, but that's a perk of your company, right? In Norway by law you can receive full sick pay for up to 1 year

    You got the AIDS in your eye? And yes Americans get "sick pay" "vacation pay" "personal day pay"...we even have things like 401k, pensions, and annuities.

    If you get sick in America, they take you out back and shoot you and charge like $200 for the projectile. It's insane, but it's cheaper than what they charge for an aspirin.
