We have a new-ish guy in the office (started about six months ago) who has probably been sick at least four times since he started. Despite this, and despite the fact that our office is really good about letting people take sick leave when they need it, he refuses to take a day off when he's sick. Seriously, he hasn't taken a single one. Rather than take a day or two to get better, he seems to prefer to come in and share his misery with the rest of us. There's really no reason for it, either. He's not so critical to our operations that he just can't miss any time, and, like I said, management very, very, very rarely (if ever) gives any resistance to people who need some sick leave.
Other than that, he's a nice guy and does good work, but it's really aggravating that he sees no harm in coming in here and spreading his illness.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. I've always thought it was absurd that we continue with such a ridiculous anachronism, but it has gotten even more aggravating now that I have a kid whose (and responsibilities that prevent me from sleeping in to compensate).
