Though it could just be the summertime version of winter vomiting disease!
A Subway employee in Freeport, Texas claims she was fired after she became so ill that sympathetic workers at a nearby restaurant called 911 to care for her.
Elizabeth Taft …told Local 2 Houston that when she reported to work sick with a stomach virus last week, her manager refused to allow her to leave.
“I was going back and forth to the bathroom, puking my guts out,” Taft said. “I was sweating, I was drenched in sweat. I felt weak.” But her manager just ordered her to resume working on the line.
“So until about 1 o’clock, I was on the line making sandwiches and [her manager] knew I was sick,” she said. “I was touching everybody’s sandwiches. I’m like ‘this ain’t right.’ I had gloves on, but that doesn’t matter.”
She eventually became so feverish that she stumbled outside, where an employee from a nearby restaurant came to her aid.
He took pictures of her and posted them to Facebook with the caption, “if you planned on eating Freeport Subway today I advise not to, I witnessed an employee vomiting and her manager just telling her to switch shirts.”
