COVID + Work Complaining 

I feel like I'm living in upside down world. This week, one coworker is travelling out of state (!) to go to a wedding (!), and this weekend, another coworker with diabetes (!) who volunteers as a first responder (!) travelled out of state (!) to visit his elderly parents (!), and yet another who has an immunocompromised (!) son with a history of lung issues (!) travelled out of state (!) to visit a doctor friend (!)

COVID + Work Complaining 

@Zuph this is such a mood, I feel like we're now all in an upside down world. Those 4 stages of grief? We are back to the stage of denial and firmly stuck in it.

I can't believe how many of my coworkers are talking excitedly about going back to shopping and to having BBQs and pool parties???

@sparkling_void RIGHT! Like, my sister and her husband visited my Dad yesterday! And my Dad got uncharacteristically pissy for not joining them, "You can't stay away from people all year."

And like, yes? I can? Like, if it means I'm saving lives, especially the lives of people I love, I sure as hell will stay in all year?

@Zuph some people got so dramatic, "you can't live your life in fear", "you gotta get back to living your life", and I'm??? What are we even talking about?

@Zuph You are correct to be alarmed. Unfortunately inconsistent and incompetent leadership coupled with quarantine fatigue is pushing people to make very poor decisions.
