A little while ago a longtime friend (now former friend) barked at me for getting vaccinated because you can still get covid with your 3 shots. I’m seriously upset about this for several reasons which I’ll shortly get into. They told me that the only masks effective are N95. Which my wife and I already wear as well as a fabric mask over top. They never thought to ask what masks my wife and I wear either or why we got vaccinated in the first place. I’m genuinely despondent over this. In the future, if any of my friends are not vaccinated then please stop talking to me and go away.
Nothing is 100%. Vaccines are not 100%. Masks are not 100%. Hand sanitizing is not 100%. Seatbelts are not 100% either but you still wear one when go out in a car. In essence what you’re advocating is doing nothing at all is the polar opposite of the protection vaccines, masks and hand sanitizer. Don’t tell me that we have to live with covid because it is a selfish and ignorant attitude to take. People who don’t do anything to prevent the spread of Covid or wander through life as if everything is “normal” are the reason this pandemic continues to ravage every part of the globe. It’s this sort of asshole that endanger people like myself, my wife, seniors, the immunocompromised, etc.
This pandemic has shown people’s true colours to me. I swear, if another jerk tells me to live with covid I’ll deck them in their big mouth the next time I meet them in public. I’m sick and tired of this pandemic. I’m sick and tired of these selfish people. I’m sick and tired of pulling antivaxxers weight until the pandemic gets to a manageable level (which according to some virologists will be 2025 at the earliest). I’m sick and tired of this crap amping my anxiety to record levels. I’m sick and tired of strangers not doing anything to prevent the spread of Covid. So the last thing I need or want is a “friend” not doing anything to help prevent the spread of Covid.
Normally I don’t hold grudges but this time is an exception. Normally I don’t wish ill will to anyone but this time is an exception. Normally I care for my fellow citizen but this is an exception. Normally I’d like to not to be a hypocrite but this time is an exception. This is all because I’m exhausted with the pandemic. This is all because I’m exhausted of dealing with selfish people. This is all because I’m exhausted from being worried if my loved ones will get sick. This is all because I’m exhausted from the misinformation being peddled from every direction.
So if I seem testy now you know why. It’s because I no longer want to be your friend. It’s because I no longer want to be your acquaintance. It’s also because I no longer want to be anything to you because YOU and YOUR kind are solely responsible for stretching this damn pandemic out longer than it needs to be. To reiterate, if you’re still my “friend” and you insist on being a selfish jerk by not getting vaccinated and by not wearing a mask and by spewing misinformation then FUCK OFF IMMEDIATELY.
Thank you for your cooperation and sincere thanks to those of you who reads this diatribe mine.
