|I'm in charge|
I try the best I can, but recently, I've noticed a tendency for staff to take a couple of days off work for the slightest of reasons.
For this reason, I've decided to introduce a coordinated campaign of postal and email support.
If some one's off for the first time, I send them this.
For a second day off, this will be sent.
For a third day off sick, they get the special treatment.
More than three days and I'm afraid it's the

However, I'm not a vindictive man, and I believe in a proactive approach, so I've instigated a keep well pedagogy.
If I spot someone with a slight sniffle, I send them a copy of:
If someone actually has the effrontery to be off sick for more than 3 days in a term, I send them this.
The sheer effrontery and lunatic obsession with health of these (rather naked) young people will guarantee a speedy return to life.
Or it may kill them anyway.
There is however a down side. (There always is, isn't there).
It takes time for the bureaucracy to get around to authorise a replacement, so I thought a little incentive would do the trick.
If I think they might be getting down (the first precursor to an actual physical symptom) I send them this.

I've also looked at a legal option. To stop the malingering bastards from taking more than ½ hour off per year, I want all staff to sign the special "Health" contract as shown below.
The last resort is to use the special "coffin dust" sent to me by Auntie Twisted after her last trip to Haiti. It does produce some rather odd side effects, but the teachers
- They never need breaks (or food come to that)
- The never miss DEADlines
- They're always on site
- They're never frightened of the kids (unless the kids have flamethrowers or silver bullets)
- The kids don't talk back
- 10DK recognise a kindred spirit and undergo a bonding ceremony involving coffin dust, the blood of a virgin (had to be imported from Tasmania), and the white hair taken from a living, walking corpse (Supplied by Ringo in another vain effort to be actually liked and respected by the pupils)

I should also like to add as a footnote, that my Beloved (Mrs. Twisted) got a clean bill of health at her check-up today.
I should also like to add that as I took a morning off work to escort her to the Hospital I get extra brownie points and am now allowed out of the garage.
I should also like to add that this morning, NOBODY was off sick, and NO relief cover was required.
Can't you bastards always be this healthy when I'M doing the bloody relief.
