Job Creation

I would love the ability to give away my cold. This is nothing new of course, I know everybody who has ever had a cold has thought the same thing. Get rid of the sinus pressure, the sore throat, the constant back and forth between stuff and runny nose and the, OMG I think I just coughed up a lung cough. Why not give it away to somebody who would love to spend a few days in bed and eat chicken soup?

Instead of spending billions of dollars on cold remedies, we should fund research on how to "transfer" our common colds to hypochondriacs! Seriously,it would cut down the amount of loss productivity and I think you would spawn a whole new industry of professional "sickies". Hypochondriacs think they're sick all the time anyway, why not have a verifiable illness and get paid for it. They could set rates and charge by the day. How much would you pay to give your cold away?

Right now, I'd give half my savings account to make this sinus pressure leave for good.

Dude, I will take it AND half of your savings account. I would love to take a few days off being legitimately sick.

Of course, I say this, not having had a cold in years, so I might have kind of forgotten how miserable it can be.

P.S....can't wait for the suprise!!!!

I'm finally feeling human again. I wish you were.

Would it help if I gave you a list of enemies to transfer your cold to? Maybe we could use some old school voodoo dolls?

This idea keeps getting better and better. Hope you start feeling like yourself again soon!

Plus-- it gives people legitimate excuses to not go to work!
