Coworker, on voicemail: It started yesterday before I left work, but it just got worse and I spent all night on the toilet. Well, on and off the toilet, it was coming out of both ends if you know what I mean. Anyway, I’ll spare you the gory details. Suffice it to say I’m going to be working from home today. I need to lie back and relieve some of this pressure in my abdomen.
