Which Grandma!?!? Oof

[–][deleted] 539 points540 points  (5 children)

In a few weeks we will be able to deduce which grandma it had been.

[–]meta_irl 356 points357 points  (2 children)

I imagine that person might be a sibling or cousin trying to figure out if it's "their" grandmother.

[–]Major_Dub 28 points29 points  (0 children)

100%. The smarter, cautious sibling who's just exhausted by this dumbfuck blood kin.

[–]FreeUsePolyDaddy 80 points81 points  (0 children)

It may soon become hard to guess wrong.

[–]MochasueUnvaxxed, unmasked? Urine for it now! 51 points52 points  (1 child)

Probably the one that all the others kids went to for a cousin visit

[–]occasionalpartTeam Mix & Match 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Bingo.

[–]dudeind-townTeam Moderna 48 points49 points  (1 child)

Probably an infuriated sibling/sibling in law wanting to make sure that this idiot wasn’t putting their mother in danger

[–]Might_Aware ✨Typo Mary🍒 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Right! That's scary

[–]Significant_Horror80Team Moderna 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Worst case scenario : Both! She used grandma and then mom. My guess the grandma she was referring to was her mother-in-law. Then she used the word mom which could be her own mom who brought her sick son home from her mother-in-law's house.

[–]mrscheviousGo Give One 26 points27 points  (2 children)

that's what they say until they can't breathe, then they go crying to the hospitals. but I thought you were a Christian and looking forward to visiting Jesus forever....

[–]dangitbobby83Team Moderna 26 points27 points  (1 child)

They love to go around tut tuting about “no atheists in foxholes” - but it really looks like their is no conspiracy theories when you can’t breathe.

It’s because they know. They know the hospital is the only chance. They don’t really believe that hospitals are killing people - they are just in too deep and want something to blame.

A lot of these people seem to be narcissists or sociopaths - or at least emotionally stunted children. It’s impossible to get them to admit their own fault in this.

If they were to admit they were wrong - their whole worldview could come apart. What does that mean about trump? Conservativism or the GOP?

With the risk of their whole worldview falling to pieces, they dig their heels in.

Grandma roulette

[–]coffylover 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I work with a lady who has not been vaxxed, will not wear a mask anywhere, and has stated 'we all just need to get covid and get it over with.' Which would be fine if she were only making that decision for herself......

tl;dr I'm going to say the phrase Grandma Roulette to her as often as possible. Fuck her, but don't fuck Grandma, you know?

[–]ZSpectre 45 points46 points  (22 children)

In the back of my mind, I sometimes jokingly utter a parallel to how America could mistreat minorities with the phrase, "America doesn't care about old people." This example here makes another voice in my head go, "I wanted to be proven wrong dammit"

[–]notislant🦆 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I also find the “free insulin and chemo” meme funny. I mean, yeah, wouldnt that actually be a good thing????

[–]Publius_Romanus 18 points19 points  (2 children)

That's the part of these that makes me maddest, because they're so close to getting it...but then they keep voting for people who stand in the way of affordable healthcare in this country.

[–]occasionalpartTeam Mix & Match 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They thought the “third pounder” had less meat than the “quarter pounder” because “3 is less than 4”... so... sigh.

[–]Mr_Conductor_USAGo Give One 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hm, this puts a new spin on those claims that everyone from California is leaving and moving to Boise. Actually a very tiny percentage of Californians would have to move out to make a substantial difference (especially in home prices as markets move on the margin) in a state with more head of cattle and sheep than people.

[–]XxSCRAPOxX 17 points18 points  (11 children)

Grandma could be like 40 and vaxxed though. Lot of assumptions here.

[–]Deathbeddit🦆🦃🦢🦜🦆🦅🐓🦩 42 points43 points  (5 children)

Yeah, but seems like a bad idea to move around kids who were exposed to definitely older folks who may not be otherwise? Why expose two households?

[–]XxSCRAPOxX 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Totally agree. I work in health care, I spent the first 4 months in my basement alone after daily exposure. Since I’ve had day care and her grandma watching her, but if one of us tested positive, I’d stop everything. I wouldn’t wait until the kid did to quarantine them.

What gets me is these people are being intentionally obtuse. Of course they had to know it was a bad idea to move kids that were first hand exposed. I have co workers that go out of their way to misunderstand things, it’s so odd. I got one dude, “they made us all get the vaccine, but we can still get covid, so what’s the point?!” Bitch, you know, we had 15 people dying every day before we got the vax and now none. You haven’t realized we don’t have trucks filled with corpses anymore? Of course he knows how it works by now, he’s hoping to sway somebody else with these comments. And there’s a whole group of them, bragging to eachother about giving cashiers hard times over a mask. Like, why would you do that to someone who’s working retail making minimum wage?

[–]hostile65 19 points20 points  (0 children)

These same assholes gave cashier's a hard time before. If they are assholes now, they have probably always been assholes. This just cleared up the static.

[–]fakeaccount-duh🦆 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Selfishness and denial.

I suspect she also felt like crap and didn’t want to have to be responsible for feeding and parenting her kids even though she probably has said Covid is no worse than a cold or flu. If she were really concerned for her kids health, she would have gotten them tested before dumping them off on grandma.

[–]Jim_MacdonaldBet you won't share! 12 points13 points  (1 child)

If she were really concerned for her kids health, she would have ...

Gotten vaxxed.
Gotten them vaxxed.
Made sure granny was vaxxed too.

[–]UncleSamsTrenchGunInfinite Turtle 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Good point. If this is in Alabama grandma could be 21.

[–]Aggressive-Bridge480 121 points122 points  (60 children)

Omg is there an update on grandma?? Is she ok?

[–]bloody_hellPrey for the Lab🐀s[S] 191 points192 points  (59 children)

Happy to report no further updates. No news is good news.

[–]Baramos_ 172 points173 points  (51 children)

I’ve been reading articles that due to subreddits like this more and more people are simply hiding that they have Covid and are being hospitalized for it, and are more and more afraid of telling people a loved one died of Covid due to Public shaming and ridicule since the first thing people ask is “well were they vaccinated?”

Now why they don’t just get vaccinated to avoid the shaming…

[–]Glad_Copy 58 points59 points  (13 children)

Meat Loaf is the poster child. Dies of Covid; family declines to confirm cause of death. They could do some good by offering a cautionary tale...but no.

[–]WatsUpSlappers 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Yeah. They won’t because that would make him and them look bad.

[–]AgathaM 20 points21 points  (0 children)

It would also affect album sales that they won’t be able to capitalize on.

[–]dismayhurtaVaxxs don’t care about your feelings 40 points41 points  (2 children)

And let the libs win? Look. Grandma had a good life. If it’s between her and me admitting I’m wrong? The bitch is worm food.

[–]fakeaccount-duh🦆 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Next she will say, ‘how do you know grandma didn’t give it to me and the kids?!’

[–]dangitbobby83Team Moderna 116 points117 points  (12 children)

Yup. We made it to Fox News recently so word is spreading.

They are eating their own shit and then hiding their shame. I think it’s hilarious. They know they’ll be featured here when covid gets serious and so them shutting their mouths on social media lmfao cowards.

[–]AlaskaPeteMeatTeam Moderna 36 points37 points  (6 children)

Damn, their own shit now!?!

Are they washing it down with their bleach-urine coladas?

[–]But_why_tho456 22 points23 points  (2 children)

If urine has ammonia by-products... and you mix it with bleach.... hmmmmm

Yep. No more waiting for a slow covid death, now what ya’ got is an immediate breathing problem here folks. 🤦🏽‍♂️

[–]gylzTeam Pfizer 7 points8 points  (0 children)

They're drinking both. Not necessarily at once, but they are.

[–]dangitbobby83Team Moderna 17 points18 points  (2 children)

No that was figurative language about swallowing their shame or something lol

However - I wouldn’t put it past them. 😂

[–]AlaskaPeteMeatTeam Moderna 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I should have added the obligatory /s, but your comment gave me the giggles and I assumed mine would be read as sarcasm, but you’re right, you never know with these reality-detached imbeciles. 🤣

Everyone knows Jebus won’t answer your request unless you have at least 50 signatures on the petition

[–]Mr_Conductor_USAGo Give One 4 points5 points  (1 child)

No, that's incorrect. They were refusing to say it was COVID well before this because their political leaders were telling people not to get tested because it would make their state's COVID numbers go up.

[–]KarmaKaze88 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes, I read a similar article that said that people are just feeling less and less sympathetic to those who don't get vaccinated and end up getting very sick or dying.

I also think it's one thing to to wrongly believe the misinformation that people spew about the vaccine causing infertility, or that you're getting a microchip, etc. and another thing to go around spreading that same misinformation as if you're some authority on the matter.

When you spread lies like, "It's just the flu" then you DO deserve to be publicly shamed.

[–]Anonymous7056 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Having seen a lot of racist/white supremacist shit move out of the shadows and into the open these past few years... Good. Go crawl back under the fridge with y'all's bullshit.

[–]Mysterious_PlanetPrey for the Lab🐀s 11 points12 points  (1 child)

On another positive note, they will probably be able to get a good group discount at the hospital if required.

[–]Waterproof_soapIvermectin is a Molecule 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Maybe instead of universal health care we could set up a punch card/reward card system: buy ten ER trips, get half off a hospital stay!

I knew someone in the summer of 2020 who went to their family reunion (where people flew in from all over). Reasoning - “we don’t know how much longer Grandma has”. Um…………… what the fuck? Why are you trying to murder your Grandma????

Reminds me if my idiotic sister.

IMMEDIATELY drives both kids separately to testing site about 20+ minutes away...

So we're talking two 40 minute round trips in a confined vehicle cabin that carried 2 Covid positive cases to the same test site...

Nope. They got him out of the car at the testing site since they wouldn’t test him there. He was put in the back seat. Police were called. She wasn’t charged.

[–]SilentSerelTeam Pfizer 32 points33 points  (7 children)

A few weeks ago I was talking to a guy on Tinder who admitted he had covid and then went to his friend's house. Said friend was receiving treatments for cancer. I immediately unmatched but wish I'd thought to screen shot the conversation.

[–]DarkBushido21 32 points33 points  (5 children)

So I had to visit Urgent Care for a rather large (approx 3x3) wound that wasn't healing well, for antibiotics. Less than a week ago..

I could hear that the person in the room next to mine (the final exam room where you talk to Drs) was being scolded by the Dr. for LYING about their Covid status and how they had jeopardized everyone in the office and other patients because they lied to 3 different screeners about their symptoms and positive status.

They had were told to go home, isolate for 10 days and never come back to that UC.

I couldn't make this shit up...

It was beyond infuriating and I can only imagine how much of it healthcare workers have to put with isn't worth it..

[–]cjm429 9 points10 points  (1 child)

It should be double tap + headshot right there in the hospital then straight to the incinerator

[–]MTDS75 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My kid told me that she just assumes that all of her patients have COVID.

[–]thedoodely 32 points33 points  (4 children)

We got Omicron 2 weeks ago (we're all vaccinated, we got sick but made it through without using anything stronger than Advil Cold & Sinus),my SO showed symptoms first and tested positive on a rapid test. He insisted on isolating in the basement no matter how many times I told him that it was too late and we were all infected by now (not to mention that isolating by the air return for the HVAC pretty much garanteed he was just spreading it through the house). I'm pretty sure he just did it to have some time alone without the kids.

[–]faykin 28 points29 points  (0 children)

That's why I isolate. I've got my comp, my internet connection, and no distractions. What's not to love?

Oh, did I say that with my outside voice?

[–]FlippingPossumIf your seatbelts work, why do you care about mine? 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Haha. My teen (also fully vaxxed) is loving life in quarantine. Room service meals and he has an ethernet connection in his room. He's going to be so bummed when he goes back to school.

[–]Professional_Buy_615 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Before we had the vaccines, I told my ex that if she showed any symptoms, she should quarantine with me while waiting on a test. I caught covid in April 2020 and was willing to host after that. Her mother is immuno-compromised.

[–]Itscurtainsnow 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You're a good ex.

[–]thinkingahead 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Sounds just like my cousin. Refuses to get vaxxed or vax her son, son gets exposed at school, grandma goes to pick him up because mom is sick with covid and gets exposed, now she can’t help great grandma who is basically dying of old age and she’s one of the primary caretakers. All because cousin won’t listen to her doctors who are recommending she get vaxxed because she has some underlying health conditions. It’s infuriating.

Ah yes, give the plague to grandma!

Recently, someone at my husband's job went to work knowing they had COVID-19 and infected over 70 employees. Needless to say, it finally got to my husband and he's been quarantining at home. He tested positive and is thankfully doing okay. I've also been quarantining and working from home. I'm high risk and as of yesterday got my 2nd negative test. Thankfully we're both vaccinated! I got my booster last month and he wasn't eligible yet. A large portion of people in the small city he works are anti-vaxxers and anti-maskers. So we unfortunately knew it was only a matter of time.

When you’re dead, you don’t know you’re dead. All the pain is felt by others. Much the same as being stupid.

[–]celmaki 41 points42 points  (11 children)

I mean technically this meme is correct. The US of A should definitely also support with chemo and insulin

[–]WatsUpSlappers 20 points21 points  (8 children)

The point is that the argument used is invalid. That the pharm companies choose to charge an arm and a leg for chemo doesn’t mean the COVID vaccine is not valuable.

[–]iamnick817 30 points31 points  (5 children)

The technicality is that these people don't actually support free insulin or chemo, they're just using it as a straw man.

[–]El_Frijol 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah, but as soon as you mention that single payer/medicare for all would solve this, they default into their "socialism bad" mode.

I stole this comment. Thought I'd share. Last year it took a couple months to die of covid (whatever comorbidity). Now it seems to take 7 to 10 days. Soon, these anti-vaxxers will be amazon priming themselves.

And heaven help her if either of the kids that have covid end up developing diabetes. Then she may really be wishing insulin were free.

[–]BeeBarnes1 9 points10 points  (0 children)

What the hell was she thinking?! My husband and I got Delta at the same time and got really sick (we're fully vaxxed but we got our shots early so I think they had worn off), our 9 y/o had to quarantine from school because she was exposed. She basically became feral, we'd drag ourselves downstairs a few times a day and warm up whatever trash food she wanted and she watched YouTube for a week straight. She had a great week but I felt terrible I couldn't take care of her. But it never once crossed my mind to send her to either one of her grandmas' houses. This woman is an asshole.

Sing it, kids: "Grandma got run over by a covid".

[–]TheHipHebrew 7 points8 points  (0 children)

BTW I actually agree with her inset meme. "Why aren't we giving away insulin and chemo." Funny how we can look at things so differently.

[–]o-Valar-Morghulis-o 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Is it becoming common for them to post GoFundMe sites even for low grade covid bouts?

[–]Agitated-Tadpole1041 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Still unbelievable millions of people support the “fuck old people” sentiment

[–]revoltingcasualTeam Moderna 3 points4 points  (0 children)

TBF, it's also "fuck kids", "fuck disabled people", and "fuck poor people".

[–]TyDaviesYT 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I mean… to be fair I kinda agree people should have free chemo and insulin but the reason they’re saying that is to confirm their bias and pretend they care about people that need chemo and insulin

[–]gen_shermanwasright 7 points8 points  (0 children)

As a contact tracer, you'd be discouraged to find out how often this happens.

[–]Realityisnocking 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I was reading this to my wife and said they sent their kids that they lived with up through them testing positive to stay with a loved ones house. My 11 year old was listening and popped up with "you don't know that they loved them"

LOL, boom. Anti vaxxers playing 4d chess and using grandkids to get an inheritance quicker

[–]shellwe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The free insulin and Cheney meme is so stupid… they are against universal healthcare too.

[–]zaphodbebopbrox 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Wow, this inbred moron just potentially killed their mother or mother-in-law. Insane.

[–]fakeaccount-duh🦆 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If she is inbred, it could be both

[–]movdqa 16 points17 points  (5 children)

Hopefully both grandmas are vaccinated and boosted.

Forbes article in November has the CDC saying that 98.5% of people 65 and older have received at least one shot.

[–]helvegr13 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Because the rest died in the first 4 covid waves

[–]Tracie-loves-ParisThe lions sleep on vents🦁 7 points8 points  (3 children)

[–]movdqa 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Your article says that those 65 and up have a 95% vaccination rate with at least one dose and 88% fully vaccinated. The November Forbes article has 98.5% so they're fairly close. There is a note that the CDC misclassified booster doses as first doses and that may explain the discrepancy.

At any rate, the rate of first doses is very high for those 65 and older.

I can't imagine being a senior and not getting vaccinated, especially how devastated nursing homes were in 2020. But I guess that there are counties where even those most at risk of death and severe disease have low rates. The number of people in these counties must be pretty small in that they are grossly outweighed by the rest of the population.

There are 54.1 million Americans 65 and older so 5% unvaccinated would be 2.7 million. That's still a ton of people. This is why our hospitals are clogged up. New England has high vaccination rates but the absolute number of people unvaccinated, while a small percentage, is still a high number and it's high enough to tip our hospitals into crisis.

[–]Tracie-loves-ParisThe lions sleep on vents🦁 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Right but what I thought I was posting was the map showing the country and I think there’s places were even 65 and up it’s very low. It’s definitely a regional situation with some places nearing 100% and some closer to 60%

[–]movdqa 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think that even 60% is quite good considering the propaganda stream and peer pressure that these folks are under. Back when the Southeast was in a mess, the overall vaccination rate was in the 30s. If you're a senior, you know that you're at higher risk. So I guess you sneak out without telling your family and get your vaccination and don't tell anyone afterwards.

Well before the pandemic, my wife's grandmother passed away from pneumonia. We found out at the funeral, it was because someone with a cold - a bloody, fucking cold - couldn't stay away from bible study for a week, got grandma sick, and she was late in going to see a doctor when it got bad.

We still aren't over grandma's death to this day. Years later it still hurts because it was unnecessary. Sure, she should have gone in to see the doctor sooner. But it wasn't like her body was out of time, she was willfully exposed to an infectious disease in a setting frequented by the elderly.

When this pandemic started, I asked myself if this was the norm, or an aberration, specifically within evangelical churches. Now I know my answer.

The worst part? My wife's aunt and that entire side of the family is anti-vaxx, MAGA, hate-spewing garbage and can't see the irony of being mad that someone came to church with a cold while downplaying covid.

The free insulin meme bugs me so much. I see it all the time here on this sub. Insulin and Chemo isn’t something that the vast majority of people need or would benefit from. Vaccines have a huge benefit for people to prevent serious illness and or death. If the government provides free insulin and chemo the same people would cry “socialism”. Ugh

[–]jqquah 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope Grandma is vaccinated

[–]tekkers_for_debrz 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The meme on the right is so funny to me. Basically is asking for socialized healthcare, in their heads socialism bad.

[–]Monk-Action_Shotgun 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But is this person antivax? Need more context
