Of all the things I’m getting right sick of during this pandemic, one of the worst is having to constantly hear some clown or other say that everyone else is making far too big a deal out of COVID because healthy people have nothing to worry about. Even if we pretend that all of those stories about young, otherwise healthy people catching the virus, becoming severely ill and wanting to tell the rest of us all about how much we really do not want to contract it don’t exist, this notion is still total bullshit. There are exactly four reasons why a healthy person would not worry whatsoever about this. they are as follows:
- You are a serial killer and you view spreading Coronavirus as an easy way to bump up your death toll.
- You want to be a serial killer and you view spreading Coronavirus as an easy way to get started on your death toll.
- You have no family, no friends, no acquaintances and spend 100% of your time not interacting with other people in even the most passive fashion.
- You are in denial and taking this hoping for the best stuff way too far.
Yes, that’s it. You’re either a lonely, selfish dick or you have your head in the sand. There are no other possible options here.
If you’re the head in the sand guy, all I can say is hang in there. It’s worse than you’re letting yourself believe, but it’s not going to be the end of the world. We’ll get through this if we all do our best to make smart decisions.
If you’re the dick, just stop. I know you won’t listen to me, but please, just stop. If you end up fine, great. Unfortunately you won’t know whether you’re ending up fine until this is all over and you aren’t either a husk or a corpse, but if you do, awesome. But until then, this isn’t all about you. It’s about every other person you come into contact with. Your family. My family. Some dude you don’t know’s family. You might be a healthy person, but a lot of people aren’t, and they don’t all wear signs that say “caution, unhealthy person ahead”. So for once, could you please just do your best not to be a complete fucking asshole and to show a little respect for others? Yours may not, but plenty of lives are depending on it right now.
