I’m really angry right now. There are, on any given day, over 14 Million people in the world with cancer. That’s not what’s pissing me off. Cancer’s like a car getting hit by a tree in the forest. It’s an act of God and it happens, and all you can do is deal with getting it fixed. No, what’s pissing me off is the number of people who are right now, today, walking around sick and coughing, sneezing and spreading colds and flu to everyone around them without giving a single shit about who they might be putting in serious danger. This shit is preventable, and people are either too self-righteous or too lazy to do anything about it.
- Like the guy standing at the end of the grocery store who does a spread eagle motion when he sneezes all over the food display. Seriously, dude?
- Or the parents of those kids with the nasty cough that are EVERYWHERE right now, including the surgery waiting room at the hospital? What the hell are you thinking?
- My personal favorites are the people working in the office when they should have stayed home. It’s the 21st century. Telecommute for a couple of weeks. The whole office doesn’t need to be sick just because your kid brought it home. For you parents::If your kid is sick, keep them home. Same thing. Telecommute until it’s through your house. Don’t bring it to me at the office, grocery store, pharmacy, etc.
- And for Heaven’s sake, person behind the checkout counter at Walgreens, GO HOME rather than wipe your sneeze onto my merchandise, bag, money, etc.
WHY? Just WHY do you have to have so little care for the rest of us? 36,000 people are going to die in the next 5 months because you won’t cover a cough or sneeze, refuse to wear a mask, don’t carry or use a hand sanitizer so that the gift of your cold or flu gets passed on to someone who’s immune system can’t handle it. Do you really want that?
I will tell y’all right now, if any one of you brings me this shit while I’m on chemo and I die from the flu, I’ll be haunting your ass til the day you die and probably then some. I’m not even kidding right now.
It’s really simple: If you’re sick, stay home. Use a mask. Wash your damned hands. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Don’t subject the rest of us to your cooties. PLEASE.
14.6 families of people with cancer today thank you.
