Sick For The Holidays

October 16, 2007

in Illness/Medical Stories

It was my 36th birthday which lands right before Xmas. My family and I decided to have dinner in San Francisco, which would be all decked out and gorgeous for the holidays. I love old fashioned 50s diners and there was a very popular one by the water that I had been dying to try for years. We had our seafood meals and crème brulees and went home. The next day both my best friend and I, who work together, felt horribly ill and spent the entire day in and out of the loo, and lunch hour napping in a shower stall. We drove home to find my sister just as ill. She spoke to the manager and he defended the food, but agreed to reverse the 200 dollar charge to the credit card. He said he would mail a coupon for a free meal as well. The charge was reversed the next day. Xmas eve was spent passing a box of wheat crackers back and forth between all of us as we were all still too sick for much else. The funny thing is the promised coupon never arrived. Guess the restaurant didn’t want to risk it.

Left My Appetite in San Francisco!

This happened to me once but I quickly recovered. But you should have never gone to work the next day if you were that ill. You should both have stayed at home and had a rest.

They didn't realize how ill they were until the next day! If they had symptoms the night before then they probably wouldn't go to work but it sounds like it acted up after they went to work.
