A Coronavirus Semi-rant
I thought this post from last March was interesting in contrasting the situation as we were just learning with what we now hope is the nearing of the end of the feking tunnel. Also I love to re-rant at the ass-hats who were not worried as it was mostly effecting us old folks.
I did not want to post on this virus thing, it is too depressing. I have not gotten it so far, but yeah, it is hitting me. I have lost a boat load of money that may or not be recovered in the months to come. I have finally learned how to convert the ten-pin spare and my bowling league has been put on hold. My gym is cancelled and I’m advised that at my age I should stay home anyway. Mrs. C’s dance studio had a major event cancelled and she lost a lot of money and her boss lost a lot of money times 1000.
Wah, wah, wah.
Actually, I’m fine and thankful that I am. For now, I am just hunkering down and thanking god I quit smoking years ago and am in pretty good shape. I really feel for all the people who are losing their jobs and wages. I feel sorry for all those that are extra vulnerable to this virus. Most of us will survive the virus, economic recovery for many will be long and painful.
I think closing bars and restaurants and events is a good decision. With any luck we may see things start to turn in the right direction in two or three weeks. Maybe this thing will be seasonal…one can hope.
I do have two major complaints where I am compelled to vent.
Number 1 – Shut up with the politics for crap sake. Stop pointing fingers and STFU. There will be mistakes made, there will be excellent decisions made. There are people working above and beyond for the good of all. When this thing clears up, then do a recap and you can be a Monday morning know-it-all Quarterback. Until then, can we for just this one thing all pull together?
Number 2 – I actually read where some of the snot nosed spoiled little prick millennials who seem to be mostly immune to this virus are calling it a “Boomer Remover!” Very clever you worthless little shits. My response to anyone so crass to say such a thing is FUCK YOU!
Boomers are your parents, your grandparents, your teachers, and many are the very people working to find a vaccine for this and other diseases that someday you may be more susceptible to catching.
Stop partying, stay away from crowds, and wash your feckin hands. I know it is only a very small number of assholes with this attitude, but it only takes one thoughtless little shit to infect hundreds. Those hundreds may infect more hundreds and tie up the hospitals. When you need the ER because your drunken partying ass gets in an accident and there are no rooms or doctors to help you recover, then maybe you will realize we are all in this together one way or another.
In summary, together we can make it through this and when we do, let’s all do what we can to help those less fortunate in weathering the storm.
Until then, wash your hands, separate from crowds and stay safe.
To any millennial who thinks “Boomer Remover” is a funny name for this virus, please tell me when this is all over. This 74-year-old Boomer is jonesing for a nose to bust.
Ok, now I feel a little better.
