Fuming…

I will add my five eggs and shame those who vandalise key workers cars, burn home delivery vehicles and spit in the faces of those in the front line fighting an unseen enemy.
There is the UK round of applause again this evening at 8pm for our NHS and all those who are trying to care for us. They deserve it, and much, much more.

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

I lost it. The computer screen got it right between the eyes. The dog hid under the desk as I gave vocal vent to the emotion the onscreen message incited. It may have been an over-reaction, but it was probably just the final straw. The culprit was another of the public information messages reminding us about the current mass quarantine. This one pulled no punches.

“Don’t go outside. People will die.”

Tell that to the emergency and medical services…who are not ‘services’…they are people, with partners, parents and children they are trying to keep safe while they go out to work every day, trying to help the rest of us. Tell it to the farmers and growers who work outside and without whom we would be lacking a lot more than toilet paper. Tell it to those in the testing labs, in contact with the virus every day.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  2. I’m going to add my voice and a link to Ms. Vincent’s and your blog posts about this. It continues to anger me that pointing fingers, placing blame and fear mongering are ruling the day and the voice of reason is getting lost in the clamor! If one knows one has a weak immune system or is in a high risk target group, let’s say THEY stay home, stay away from other people and so forth. To make someone healthy (who is providing a necessary service or even just trying to live a relatively normal life) feel guilty because they’re breathing the same air as everyone else is shameful.

    I think they should name and shame them.
