Typhoid Mary

I am being “affectionately” called Typhoid Mary at work for the past week (or week and a half? I lose track).

Why do you ask? Why do my friends at work love me so much?

This is how the name came about to stick to me:

I have been hacking and coughing for the past FOREVER every five minutes or so at work because 7aki is sick 😦 .

All of a sudden Bob yells from his cubicle and says ” whoa there Typhoid Mary” addressing me, I had no clue who that was so the ever helpfull resident Encyclopedia William rushed to google her, wikkipedia her to explain to me who she was.

Here’s Mary’s story:

“Mary Mallon (September 23, 1869 – November 11, 1938), also known as Typhoid Mary, was the first person in the United States to be identified as a healthy carrier of typhoid fever. Over the course of her career as a cook, she infected 47 people, three of whom died from the disease. Her fame is in part due to her vehement denial of her own role in causing the disease, together with her refusal to cease working as a cook. She was forcibly quarantined twice by public health authorities and died in quarantine. It was also possible that she was born with the disease, as her mother had typhoid fever during her pregnancy….. [Source]

Now I am not called 7aki anymore, I am being called Typhoid Mary.

Bob sent me an email with the title Typhoid Mary and it had this picture:


Now how mean is that ????

I am being bullied by William and Bob sniff sniff, and I need a vacation, sniff sniff, I have been sick for effing ever, sniff sniff  😦

Ana Biddi Mama …. waaaaa33333333
