Weekends rock. But when you fall sick on weekends, IT SUCKS.
Weekends are the most awaited event for 99.99% of the people. Especially, for those who work in a 9 to 6 work environment. You plan so many cool things, but what if you fall sick on the Weekend?
Alas, my bad luck began when last Friday night I found myself burning in the flames of hell. Later, I checked. I had a fever of 102 F. Maybe not just a fever, as it was a little more concerning but my Weekend was fucked.
If you have ever fallen sick on the weekends, you know what I mean. But if you haven’t, below are some of the most common problems that you are going to face.
1. Your plans of binge-watching that new release on Netflix will remain a plan for the time being.
Staring at your laptop screen is simply going to give you a headache and teary eyes. Well, if you are brave enough to give it a try, then go ahead by all means. Either way, you have to watch the show again because you are not going to get half of the story, feeling droopy eyes all the time.
2. Saturday biryani is off the table.
It can be the mutton night for you, but for me, it’s Saturday biryani. Kind of a ritual that I have to follow every Saturday morning. But when you are sick, there is no way you are going to have biryani in breakfast.
3. Your regular dosage of green meds is now going to be replaced by the artificial meds that don’t even taste good.
Some go to the club, some go out with their girlfriends and waste their hard earned money on some fancy dinner date. I simply roll a spliff and enjoy watching everyone in chaos. But all this change when you fall sick. All the money you have saved for the stash needs to go to the pharmacist shop in exchange for the so-called medicines.
4. The game night becomes rest night and ironically you can’t even rest because of your blocked nostril.
Okay, I’m sick. I realized that when I found myself burning in the hellfire. I know I need to rest. I understood that even before the doctor suggested me so. But, how the fuck am I supposed to rest when I can’t even breath. I think I should just roll a spliff.
5. Everything hurts and Everything sucks.
Weekend’s supposed to be the angels that help your soul to rejuvenate and motivate to face the Monday monster. But when you are sick, you get to see the other side of these angels, and they will make your body ache like you laid under a road roller.
6. Falling sick on the weekends means no weekends.
This is a no-brainer, by falling sick on the weekends you are only going to miss on all the things that you have planned for the weekend.
7. No Beer just cough syrup
I know, I’ve beer in my fridge by still I’m holding the cough syrup in my hand. Why? Because I’m fucking sick on a Saturday night.
8. Rushing to get better before Monday
No one want’s to waste their Saturday and Sundays lying in the bed. It doesn’t matter if you have to sacrifice your biryani ritual or replace the beer bottle with the cough syrup. But you’ll only be getting better when Monday comes. So that you can’t call in sick at the office.

9. You miss your friends
Honestly, this one is the worst. No matter how cool your friends are with you being sick. They are afraid of getting the flu you have, so they will be having the game night without you and you’ll miss that.
10. The food will become the greatest conspiracy
Only the individuals who got dead taste buds can eat the boiled food that is made for sick people. Being sick is a punishment in itself than why everyone tries to make it hard by making us eat the boiled food.
So, what do you think?
It would be great if we could schedule the time we want to fall sick, right?
Obviously, I would never put it on my plan, to begin with. But still, if I happen to fall sick again I would rather it would be on a weekday so at least I can take an off and rest and save my weekends for more fun things to do.
