Swine flu

Now I know the media have probably gone a bit overboard on this swine flu "pandemic", but who knows, there may be reason for caution so I'm just making sure I take the usual sensible precautions, frequent hand washing etc. This morning, while waiting in the orthodontist's office for an appointment, a women was sitting next to us talking to a friend. She told her friend how she and her children had just got back from Mexico, where they were on vacation. Because of this she had been advised by her workplace to stay home for a few days to be sure that she had not caught anything. So I guess she thought that, to save possibly infecting everyone in her workplace, she would go to the Orthodontist office instead, and infect all the kids in the waiting room. Nice....
