AAARGH! My boss just called me. We're on spring break at the moment, and school starts up again Monday. One of my colleagues is in Calgary visiting his son, and is due to fly back Monday and teach Tuesday. My boss wants me to email him and tell him that he has to have a "note" from a lung specialist saying he doesn't have SARS before he can teach again. I tried to explain that Calgary and Toronto are really far apart, and that if he'd somehow been infected while flying to Canada a few weeks ago it would've shown up by now. If he should just happen to be in the same plane as someone with SARS on the way back here, no doctor is going to be able to ascertain on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday that he is or is not free of SARS! Am I being unreasonable, or is she? I love the way she's leaving it up to me to tell him what she wants (okay, her English is just acceptable, and his German is pretty bad, but why is it that I always have to "explain" negative things, and otherwise she can communicate just fine with him?) I just emailed him and suggested he tell her he'll wear a surgical mask during his entire flight from CALGARY. How's she to know? Was that a rotten thing to do?
