A rant

A Father’s Day get together, with my BIL, SIL, niece and her husband and of course my wife and her 90 yr old mother. All of them are right wingers except us, which is annoying in and of itself, but the subject of Covid came up. On this subject, I must give my BIL props, because he is educated and careful.

OTOH, our niece’s husband is off the wall. He is a tech director at a school. What if half the teachers claim a pre-existing condition and don’t show up for work? Blah, blah, blah. I managed to argue his points without losing my temper, until he said “some people want things to open up and get back to normal.”

What kind of a wimp can’t manage to wear a mask and social distance? What kind of a jerk doesn’t concern themselves with the vulnerable around them? Like the Spanish flu in 1918, the second wave is going to be worse, are you prepared for that? (I’m looking at a deer in headlights...) wife says “That was a long time ago.” Look it the fuck up. Same shit different day. People open things up too early and the second wave is far more deadly. The majority of people in this room are vulnerable. Who would you be willing to sacrifice? Honestly, there are people living in poverty that don’t have the luxury of social distancing. People in war zones dealing with far more shit than this but “some people” can’t bear wearing a face mask? Or staying six feet away? What absolute fucking wimps. ‘Some people” need to grow the fuck up.
