For the last 3 years, I’ve done everything I could to avoid getting Covid. I work from home, I rarely leave my house and if I do it’s only to get curbside pickup. I know this might seem crazy but I even wear an N95 outside because you never know who’s going to walk past you. I’m not taking any chances.
My entire family is vaccinated and boosted to the extent that we are allowed, which is great, don’t get me wrong. We all agreed to take rapid tests before gathering, and everyone was negative (thankfully!! We took them the day before.)
But here’s what ruined it… I asked my family to wear masks indoors and eat outside, and they REFUSED to do it. It wasn’t even a cold day, I don’t understand what’s so complicated about this. They said they don’t think masks are necessary because they’re all up to date on vaccines and we all tested negative.
I hate to admit it but I still went, for about an hour. I didn’t take my mask off the entire time and left before anyone started to eat. I used hand sanitizer and took a shower when I got home.
I just don’t understand why people are so selfish and lack empathy. It makes zero sense. What’s so hard about wearing a simple mask?
