My wife’s parents are so upset that we’re not going. “Oh but we’ll be so lonely at thanksgiving,” My wife says “Mom, would you rather be lonely or dead?” People are so fucking stupid and short-sighted. You’re 70+ years old, who CARES if you miss one thanksgiving? It’s just a made-up day when you eat turkey and watch football. Calm the fuck down. I’m not bringing my three kids who’re in school every day with 3/4 of kids not wearing masks. I’m not bringing your daughter who is a teacher and exposed to 30 kids every day and I’m not coming because I am a coach and see 15 kids twice a week.
I know they’ll complain about it from now till the end of time but at least I or my wife and kids won’t have to bury them and have that on their conscience. And that’s OK. A half dozen or so at work have gotten it and all have had mild cases. Management’s leaning into that to try to force more in-person meetings. Hell, they tried to get us to fly to Boston this week. A general revolt occurred and it got turned into a virtual meeting with a bunch of grousing that “virtual isn’t as effective as in-person.” Well, it’s better than having to use seances.
