Covidiots and Coronachondriacs - OT
Though I am sure that there are denizens of steplife that fall into these categories.. I MUST vent about people that are making things worse for all of us through their ignorance and selfishness.
I have been working from home for NOT 2 weeks... over FOUR (edit) weeks... we go take my inlaws supplies on the weekend, but don't see them in person just leave the stuff on their porch.. and we stay at our home next door to theirs when we are there. So.. we are absolutely keeping away from people.. maybe one grocery trip a week.. (edit.. not a day.. guess i'm so mad at her I can't see straight..lol)
My husband's cousin is one of these idiot people. She took a trip to mexico in early march.. yeah.. when people were starting to see how risky travel was. She of course masks up and posts those pics online.. "we are so scared but being careful".. then posts of them partying it up in Mexico. Immediately on her return she starts to talk about her "symptoms" and how "no one will test me even though I am at risk due to my autoimmune issues and I probably have corona.." She also posts daily stats to stir up all the panic possible and lament her lack of testing.. FINALLY she brow beats someone into testing her at a drive up testing site.. so then we get 5 more days of "I am 99 percent sure I have corona.. "
Finally.. results day.. it's negative. Next post is her getting her nails done.. "but we wore masks" (cause we should be wasting masks on nail prep services... vs actual medical needs right?) Our state was scheduled for lock down the next day.. she literally notes that she had to "get it in before the limits"
Also posts a visit to a beach a few hours away the next day.. "but girls.. I stayed AWAY from other people.. and the assistant park attendant said it was ok"
Great.. then she is laid off.. and we get posts about her losing her job and needing health insurance.
She announces she has qualified for Medicaid.. yay.. because she wants to get another COVID test.. because tests are pretty innacurate.. and again... she is sure she still had covid.... even though she was negative... and has none of the symptoms beyond a minor fever and some sniffles"
Now we are on lockdown in our state.. essential outings only.
She is now at a beach rental for the remainder of the month.. how she can afford it with no job.. who knows.. and she is still on about how she thinks she had corona... and with all her non-essential running about.. she could actually have been exposed by now.. so she has her potentially virus laden self shedding all over some person's rental home... .
I am getting ready to unfriend her.. she is a selfish ahole.
