Damn straight. Idiots.
The day I made that last post? I had just gotten home, and had been listening to NPR.
They were talking to, and about, people working at minimum wage.
People trying to get by on pennies, having to take 2 and 3 low paying jobs, working 12 and 15 hours a day 6 or 7 days a week.
They asked one woman, who god bless her was in her 60's, when was the last time she had a vacation. She thought and said "I think about 2 years ago....oh wait. That was when I had to go into the hospital."
That made my blood boil. The thinking about how some people think they are entitled to spend a few thousand because "they deserve" it, when honestly? Most of the population doesn't even Have that kind of money to spend at any time.
I really do equate it to AIDS in the 1980's and I guess 90's. When you had to list everyone you had sex with if you got AIDS, and the branches and crossovers were so thick and overrun, no wonder it was out of control.
The very thought of someone I had even the briefest of contact with if I got COVID died, would change my life. The idea I spread it because I felt entitled and deserving to "get away" for a week or two....I really can't wrap my mind around.
Anyone who's gotten COVID has spread it to someone, and have no idea to whom. It's not too dramatic to say that anyone who has had COVID has been the cause of someone elses death.
Anyway. I got my first vaccine yesterday. Now, 15 hours later, I still have no noticeable side effects. I hear I'll probably get them with the 2nd shot, in a month.
The process was amazingly efficient.
My appt was at 3pm. I arrived maybe 10 minutes before. I had to wait around afterwards for 30 minutes rather than 15, because I'm allergic to some medication. Cheating death, I left after 25 min.
So I got there at 2:50, and even with the 25 minute wait afterwards, when I left I looked at my phone, and it was 3:38. Total of 48 minutes.
