Debating which looks worse: calling to re-schedule a job interview because I am the Ultimate Monster of Phlem, or going in and snorting and coughing my way through the interivew. I'm starting to think the latter. *sigh*

Feh, I was rather hoping that two solid days of 9+ hours of sleep a night and staying flopped on a couch all day would knock this thing out.
Current Mood: still bloody well sick

Call in to explain you’re ill and that you would consider it grossly impolite to pass your illness on to your interviewer.

I am violently opposed to coworkers who insist on coming into work when they are sick and likely to be contagious. I got the flu this year because one of my coworkers didn't think anything of coming into work when the DOCTOR HAD TOLD HIM HE HAD THE FLU. I was NOT impressed.

I'd agree with re-scheduling. Be very polite and explain that you don't want to start off wrong by potentially spreading your cold and not be able to present yourself at your best.

Don't do it!
One of my coworkers (the head UI designer, in fact) coined the word "presenteeism" for that particular offense. If you explain why, and they still want you to come in, they are insane and you seem to have had enough of insane employers, neh?
