Coronavirus

We're pretty much shelter in place, go out only for emergencies , work and limit contact groups to no more than five.  We're also encouraged not to visit friends in their houses etc.    I think we all know the drill.

Anyway,  we're all working from home.   I go out for essential groceries , his dad needs to go to the warehouse to pick up the machines he is working on and drop of fthe ones that are done.  All the kids are home, my son is doing his school work and life goes on.

SS has gone out every night after sleeping most of the day away.  Today we got a alert on our phones telling us to stay home.  Needless to say what does SS do.  He wakes up and leaves.  Says he's hanging out with friends.  i remind his dad that we're not supposed to be going out, hanging with friends etc.  His dad , "I know I've talked to him."    I'm going to be really angry if he brings it in the house.  He still isn't washing his dishes, putting them in the dishwasher .  He has washed his hands only once before making food.  He came up last night while I was in the living room and sneezed, grabbed a kleenex and went right back to making his dinner or snack .When I mentioned the need to wash hands I got snapped at.   Wash your fucking hands you little dirty creature.    I can only imagine what he's bringing in.   

Maybe he'll get and have to leave.

I don't even know what to say to this. Enjoy your COVID-19. Hope neither you nor your husband is over 50 or has asthma or other existing conditions.

We're both over 50, I have high blood pressure somewhat controlled by medication and his dad has slight high blood pressure.  SS has asthma and a weakened immune system.  He's gotten everything else coming in the door.  He had flu earlier or maybe he already had this.     He's coughing and sneezing.  Dad says its allergies.  I say I hope the police pull him over and he gets a 500 dollar fine that he then has to work constantly to pay back.

You don't seem to take this seriously at all. Why should we care or feel bad for you, when you don't seem to care about yourself?

Your SS could be slaughtering kittens in the kitchen and your DH wouldn't do anything. 
 

Maybe you and your son could go stay elsewhere until this is over. Airbnb?

I agree with this suggestion.

Anywhere but with you and yours. This is a serious situation and your DH doesnt seem to think that. Maybe come down a bit harder when getting snapped at. Repercussions. Being told nt to leave and leaving is grounds for being kept out.

I'm lucky that I do not have to have that war with my DH that losses his balls around Skid25. 
We have no kids or young adults at home. 

However some friends do and have said to their kids, make a choice live here and practice self distancing or go somewhere else. If the choose somewhere else they are not allowed to come back. 
 

Stopping the spread and flattening the curve is important. The more of us that adhere to this the move lives saved and the time frame for all of us living this way will be shorter. 
 

Put your foot down for your health, your son's health.

I work in a hospital and I have seen 1st hand what this is doing to people, trust that this is serious. If your H can't put his foot in his sons ass and tell him NO he can't continue going out to hang with friends because it puts you all at risk, I'd take his keys or change the locks and he won't be able to come back in. I have a few friends fighting for their lives with this virus. THIS IS NO JOKE!!!

I'd be damned if my H was so nonchalant about this!

I don't care who's feelings got hurt in this case.   SSs butt would either be in the house quarantined or gone.  And if DH didn't like he it could go with SS.  That is NOT ok.  And how can your DH allow him to continually expose you to this virus.   That kid would come home and find his bags on the porch and the door locked.  This is not a game.

No way would he be coming back into my house.
