Blaming a Friend for Giving You the Flu? There’s an App for That!


If any of my co-workers send this to my phone I’ll scream.  The flu seems to be more rampant than ever.  And when you start to show symptoms, your looking for someone to point your finger at.  Well, there’s an app for that.

I came down with an eye infection (possibly pink eye, possibly conjunctivitis) over the weekend.  For the sake of my co-workers, I steered clear from the office until I knew the contagion had passed.  But you’d have thought I was a kid with lice.  I was being avoided like, well, the plague.  I felt like I was in middle school and I had cooties or something.  Lol.  Not that I blame anyone.  Flu season is in full swing and everyone is on guard.  I don’t have the flu, but in light of recent events, I feel should someone in my office fall ill, they’ll be looking for me to blame.

Curious as to which friend or co-worker gave you the flu gift that keeps on giving?  Now you can send the suspected carrier monkeys a message via a new Facebook app.

How do you know you have the flu?

Call your Doctor. If you can catch it early enough there may be medication to help speed your recovery or limit the spread of the illness in your body.

Primary Symptoms

  • Fever (100°F or greater), a fever occurs when your body temperature increases in response to illness or injury. Your temperature is considered elevated when it is 100°F or greater.
  • Muscle aches, body aches that are sudden and unexplained can be a sign of the flu.
  • Chills, body chills not related to a cold environment can be a sign of the flu.
  • Extreme fatigue, fatigue is a feeling of tiredness, exhaustion, or lack of energy. When associated with one or more of the other symptoms, this can be a sign of the flu.

Remember that desperate, hopeless feeling you had when you got sick, NO FUN!  Don’t go to work sick and pass it around.  Stay home, take care of yourself and keep others healthy (so they can do your job while you’re gone)!
