A post on Reddit that purports to show an angry sick note is going viral.

A man in Canada reportedly called out sick and was required to bring in a sick note.

The doctor’s alleged note to the patient’s employer reads:

“[The patient] has had, by their own report, a cold today and sensibly stayed home from work rather than spreading this to his colleagues/customers. I have no test for the common cold and therefore believe him, however, you feel his time and mine should be wasted by making him sit in the walk-in clinic for hours and me spending time writing a sick note that I could be spending on people who genuinely need my attention.

Please consider your policy on this – there are surely better ways of wasting your tax dollars.”

Dr. Marc Siegel sounded off on this today on “Outnumbered,” stressing that sick notes should only be required in the event of a very serious illness.
