  • To those of you going to work. Stay safe. Keep those gloves close and wear that mask. Let's not lose any more lives.

    I’ve gotten called a sheep or told I’m “living in fear” twice since coming back to work... after being quarantined for a week because one of our coworkers got COVID. I’ve been feeling especially irate with customers refusing to wear masks and maintain distance ever since coming back.

    Wear a mask! Make or buy a super cute and colorful one if you think they’re ugly! That’s what I did! Whatever you do, take care of yourself and others!

    Corona seems long forgotten over here, I haven't seen anyone wear a mask for a month or so (even during the peak only very rarely), and physical distancing etc. seems to be a thing of the past. But to be fair, the pandemic has pretty much died down here already. If you're in a place where the situation is worse, please take care and follow official instructions on health and safety.

    @peaches2217: You're not a sheep/"living in fear." The mask was never really intended to protect you, anyway.

    I come from the same country as peaches, and some of the stuff I've seen in recent weeks has horrified, disappointed, and disgusted me. An awful lot of people here are doing the right thing, but at the same time, there's a huge minority that are acting like, if they spread disease to other people, it's the victims' problem rather than theirs.

    They're right, to some extent: if others get sick, it's a problem they'll have to solve. With the help of their physicians (assuming they can get them), their bodies, and whatever deity in which they believe.

    But the fault, the culpability--if you can prevent someone from getting sick, and you don't make every effort to do so...that falls on you. Yes, if you don't wear a mask and social distance, if you don't do everything you can to protect the health of those around you, if you get sick and make others sick, it's YOUR fault. If they die, it's on you. If their relatives hurt because they die, it's on you. If they have to be hospitalized, if they lose their savings, if they lose their business, it's on you. If the infection spreads, and shutdowns are necessary, and people lose their livelihoods--it's on you.

    It's time for people the world over--and most particularly in my country, it seems, because others seem to have done a much better job--to put on their big boy/girl pants and realize that, to some extent, the welfare of others is in fact their problem. Everyone has to do their part. Sticking your head in the sand and waiting for other people to make it all go away isn't good enough anymore. YOU have a part in this, and it's ON YOU.

    PUT THE D*MN MASK ON!!
    What's the deal with Anime Matsuri? I've only heard negative things about it

    Wasn't that the convention where the dude who ran it was a sex pest or something?
    No problem with that. I got a job, and my first thought was about all the video games and pizza I could buy
