No rationalization. No debate. A place to dump your personal experiences or rants about your fellow humans and their cavalier approaches to the current pandemic. A place to scream into the void that's a little less... voidy. Commiseration welcome. Refutation unnecessary. Let your Likes do the talking. Be kind. Be understanding. Wash your hands. Wear your mask.
A new admin sat outside my office yesterday and during a casual meeting with an office-mate shares that they've been out drinking with a family member visiting from out of state and plan to do so again this weekend.
I'm sitting there. Five feet away through an open doorway. Watching them fidget with the mask they slip on and off throughout the day. Mask are 'required' only in common areas which has been interpreted to mean 'if you see someone, quickly slip on the mask you have hanging from your neck or stuffed into your pocket.'
During conversation it also gets shared that they never get the flu shot because 'they don't get sick that much.'
f*ck me. This person is in and out of school buildings all day. Ruined my day. Still thinking about it and still poisoning my mood. Needed to scream at something that wasn't my loving family. I love you and I'm sorry. Wash your hands.
