Last week both florists were out with Covid.
The week prior one of the supervisors.
Today I got an email from K with crying emojis. I could only think ‘ah f*ck’.
Turns out that not only K, but two other supervisors and our admin person all tested positive today.
I tested negative.
Had a customer ask me today how it was not wearing a mask. That I must really be enjoying it. And when I indicated that I had been wearing one all of last week given that I had a cold and did not want to share my germs, his response was that the world was now afraid of the common cold.
I looked at him and reiterated that I was being kind to my fellow c0-workers as well as the customers I come in contact with. He back down after that one.
Then he asked if I had seen the Pfizer report. A report that they were trying to hide for at least 75 years but were being forced to present it now. Something like 1200+ known side effects. Now I am getting annoyed.
I said that I had taken vaccines as a child. And it was no different then having my flu shot as well. Which is when I got lectured onto the fact that this was mrna based and had not been trialed enough on humans.
Now I was annoyed. With a smile I said to him that I was ok with being a guinea pig for this vaccine. He said he figured he would say the same thing were he to be vaccinated.
After he left it dawned on me that I should have commented that all those children who were vaccinated against polio were guinea pigs. But of course it came to me much much later, after he was gone.
