No memes or word of the day, unless I choose…
Rose, my original roommate (Vickie moved in in August), tested positive for COVID today. Why am I angry? Because she’s immune-compromised five different ways, and she never got boosted.
She seems to have a pretty nasty infection with it. Temperature over 100, sweating, difficulty breathing. She could have mitigated, or avoided it if she’d listened to my advice.
Why am I angry? I have a salon appointment tomorrow, and a diagnostic mammogram appointment on Wednesday. Now, most likely, I will have to reschedule both of them.
Why am I angry? Because, I might have to miss work. I have to call our administrative coordinator, who handles the in-store HR stuff to find out what the current protocol is. I can’t afford to miss work. I have $450 in new bills because of the car. Thank God, I have the car payments in savings.
Why am I pissed? Because WE ALL HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT OURSELVES AND, IN TURN, OTHERS.
Laziness is not an excuse.
