Anything that says "keep out of the reach of children" must be out of reach.

If it says, "Contact Poison Control" then it must be behind a double action lock of some kind...so a key lock.

If I want it off paid I kinda have to....sorta.

I'll specify if I'm taking a sick day, personal day, or vacation day.

If I'm contagious I'll let them know what to watch for.
