Just when you think it couldn’t get worse, it does.
I’m on about the terminology that we are having to suffer while the Virus Panic persists.
I’m sick of being told to “stay safe” or “stay at home”. I am sick of hearing about “our heroes” and “frontline workers”. Now all we hear about is the “roadmap to recovery” which is basically a sort of plan that seems to vary from day to day.
One of the worst is the all pervasive ubiquitous “social distancing”. What the fuck is social about it? Hugging, shaking hands, kissing and touching are all social activities practised since the dawn of time. Now they are outlawed and they call that ban “social”? It is about as anti-social as you can get.
I heard a bit of the news last night. There was an item on about hotels opening [as part of the fucking “roadmap to recovery”] and I heard some bloke saying he was leaving the hotel doors permanently open as part of a “touch avoidance policy”. What the fuck was that? Then I realised – he was leaving the doors open in case Precious should come along and wouldn’t have to touch a door handle in case the Virus was lurking on it waiting to pounce. How fucking neurotic can you get?
The world is becoming a very irritating place.
