I’m sitting in the airport terminal at Baltimore (BWI) at the end of one of the most difficult trips. The customer wasn’t ready with my workstation. Fixing that took half a day. Things went well for a while until I started coming down with a cold.
I’ve been on over 200 customer visits in the last 5 years on this job and I’ve never gotten sick to the point I could not go to the site. That is, until yesterday. It’s not that I couldn’t work. I did. I just couldn’t is good conscience expose my customer to my illness.
They were great about it and they all wished me well. The boss even made a joke that I should use more virus protection.
I’m feeling much better today. I got to the site at 6 am to finish up what I needed at the site and headed to my current location. With luck I’ll be home in a couple hours.
