Fucking christ...

Ok, one rant at a time. I've got to meter them out apparently.

For starters, there's my co-worker. His contract ends tomorrow, and he's sick as hell. Of course, the greedy fucker doesn't want to call in sick and miss out on his last days pay. But he's been progressively getting worse since friday, and today he can't even talk. We've told him to go home, he won't, and just says that his doctors appointment is on thursday.

He has no critical functions to require him to be here today. He is simply here to collect money.

If that wasn't bad enough? I'm supposed to sit next to him in a car and go out to eat with him as a paid-for lunch by my boss. Yeah. If I fucking get sick from this little shit who.. for all rights and purposes, shouldn't be working here /anyways/ ... I guess there isn't much I can do now is there. Not legally anyways.

Hmmm... there might be.

In a lot of states, if an employer requires a doctor's checkup or lab test or anything as a condition of employment, the employer is required to pay for it.

If you get sick from this insistence of your employer that you sit next to him and get whatever contagious shit he has, that's a requirement that you do whatever you can to get well, including seeing a doctor.

Point that out to Human Resources, and see what they do.
