No they aren't. Many are viral and not infections. If self diagnosed probably just tiredness/headache. If a doctor said it is an infection that perhaps contagious. [ Reply | More ]

Viruses are a cause of infection and are contagious. This is why we encourage people to cover their noses and mouths when sneezing and when coughing. The lack of basic science knowledge in this country is appalling. [ Reply | More ]

We all know this. However, a virus is not necessarily contagious and doesn't require an antibiotic. If the virus leads to infection that is a different story. [ Reply | More ]

5 th grade, so soon we are done with this. This summer some kids were at my house. One mom brought her little kid when dropping off her daughter. While she was talking to me, he tripped on a hose and got hurt. She flipped out and was saying it was irresponsible for me to have left it ou. I called to see how he was, and sent a small get better gift. The kid is fine but it was his face and he bled a lot. She hangs with the queen bee and this is the result. [ Reply | More ]

I guess they all have to volunteer, and there is a policy of leaving no footprint after the event. He was on "earth patrol" where he and a friend sat at a distance and watched an empty 2 liter bottle on the ground. Anyone who walked past the bottle without picking it up got caught out by a bullhorn for not doing their part, but got a fun sized candy bar if they did a quick penance service, like rubbing my friend's shoulders. Anyone who picked the bottle up was tossed a full-sized candy bar and asked to put the bottle back down. [ Reply | More ]

For starters, you aren't nice. You're actually rather rude. The "nice" thing to do would be to graciously accept her invitation, commit to the activity, treat her with respect and then at the end, thank her for the invite and go about your day. If you want to show her what a ungrateful person you are go ahead and "kindly extricate" yourself. If you want to act like a decent human being, tell her you would love to go, but you only have a limited amount of time because of a prior commitment. [ Reply | More ]
