Injured Mayim Bialik

Sick Days, Schmick Days

8/18/2012 2:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Big Bang Theory" star Mayim Bialik is so tough, she went right back to work after smashing her hand in a car wreck. It's almost enough to inspire us to stop making crappy excuses for time off. Almost.

Chuck Norris quakes in his boots every time he sees Mayim. Because there is now a NEW Toughest Person in Hollywood.

I knew this was coming. What is the big deal? She hurt her hand.

I love the show but it's not like she is in every episode.

It's not as if she depends on use of her hand for her job (unintentional) as long as you can say your lines you're good to go.

Now this I actually believe, unlike Lindsay who wanted us to believe she was going straight back to work after a car crash b/c she was so "tough". Mayim's a little crazy, but in a cool way!

Well if you got paid thousands of dollars per episode, got summer/months off for vacay and star on one of the most popular TV shows... you'll most likely go into work with a crushed hand. So for "average" people who work 5-7 days a week to earn a little amount with no summer off and have to take care of the house/food/family (because they can't afford help), will most likely call into work every once in a while just because they want a BREAK - even when they aren't "sick".
"It's almost enough to inspire us to stop making crappy excuses for time off. Almost." Get a reality check, TMZ.

She's obviously more of a "man" than Harvey and those other wusses who work for him.
Then again, who isn't.

It's called a good work ethic. One can assume she is scheduled to perform in the episode being shot this week; to not show up would cause a major disruption in the schedule so she did what had to be done---she came to work. That's what professionals do.
