There is an ick burning its way through the office.  Last week I began to feel not well... over the weekend, I felt even more not well, to the point I had to cancel brunch with the folks twice.  I'm doing better, though "better" isn't "healthy".  

And I nearly threw up all over my desk today, too.  Oh, not because I was ill, but because the Evil Light that pops up on my timeclock when an auditor has discovered an error in one of my claims... um... popped up on my timeclock.  As it turned out, it wasn't really an error, I just used the not-as-right-as-the-right-denial-code on a claim.  The auditor just wanted me to go back into it and use the correct code.  Don't get me wrong, the code I used was perfectly okay... it just wasn't the SOP's preferred denial code.  So the sudden urge to vomit was because of a false alarm.  Usually when that thing pops up, it may as well just be a notifier that it's time to bend over.

Terrifying.  Sad-making.  Bleargh.

1 Wait wait. There's a "you fucked up boy" indicator light?

I couldn't do it. I'd not last out my first week in a gig like that.

2 Yeah.  It's software based, of course, and the program that keeps track of everything that gets audited (both good and bad; there's well over 100 audits in the past month) is related to the timeclock program.
So it's like, okay, I need to run to the bathroom, let's click on the "break" button and... (sees indicator)... ohsh*t.
Though actually having a physical flashing light would be entertaining in a sadistic sort of way.

3 That is a workplace accident just waiting to happen.

The Evil Light.

Or maybe your illness.  Maybe both.
