Stay Home If You’re OLD!

The following is a comment made by someone who attended a recent rousing get-together at a restaurant in Colorado. The gathering took place in defiance of public health orders in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’m not afraid to be out. I’m not going to wear a mask. I’m healthy. I’m in good shape, and I don’t think it’s as serious as they say.”

“The communities are being devastated. People are losing everything… They should have never shut anybody down. They should’ve told all the old ones (people) and all the ones that don’t have the right immune systems to stay home and let people do their jobs. People are being devastated.”

(Emphasis mine.)

Not exactly sure what age this person includes in the “old ones,” but in any case if you think you might qualify, you should probably just STAY HOME and let the rest of the (young) world continue on.

Sidenote: If this pandemic is not as “serious as they say,” why have there been nearly 80,000 deaths in the U.S. alone over a period of five months? But then, these are just numbers to some people because it hasn’t affected them or one of their loved ones.
