A guy @work is making me sick
The guy who sits next to me coughs like an old engine. It's REALLY loud and goes on & on. By the time he gets to the end, it sounds like his bladder is coming out of his mouth.
You would think he gets some medication and get it over with, but this vile hacking has been going on for months. I got sick twice this month already.
My question is, why does this bother me only? Are the others bothered too but being all British about it (elephant in the living room kind of thing)?
I'm too afraid to talk. WTF am I going to say that doesn't sound like I am a bigger inconsiderate jerk than they already think I am? Plus, I cannot really ask someone to take care of his health.
There is no company policy against coughing, just as there is none against farting, but people don't do either out of consideration for others. Maybe this guy has a pumpkin for a brain.
What should I do?
