To be annoyed at breaking of covid re-entry quarantine
PicaK · 03/05/2021 12:14
Ex-Dh went to visit friends over weekend - socially distanced, in garden. One of them lives/works abroad and pops back.
They arrived back yesterday but has been out and about shopping etc. And obviously having friends over.
Ex-dh genuinely didn't know this til he got there. But then comes in my house before he tells me.
I'm pissed off.
But am I overreacting? I haven't followed the rules religiously - hugged a friend when crying. Seen my parents inside before bubbles were allowed etc.
Aibu to be annoyed with flagrant rule breaking when I haven't followed 100% myself.
Am I being unreasonable?AIBU

Disagree. The rules are rules, you either follow them or you don't. You are a hypocrite if you break rules yourself but then judge others for breaking them.

I agree with @Waxonwaxoff0 on this. Everyone who breaks the rules will probably have a rationale as to why it's ok for them to do that. All of them have presumably "done their own risk assessment". You either believe that the rules should be followed or you are ok with everyone doing their own thing.

I don't think anyone should break the rules. There's a reason for all of them, even if people can't understand it
However, there's a big difference between hugging & supporting a distraught friend than travelling to Europe and not quarantining when you get back.
Your EX DH shouldn't have come into your house anyway (unless you've weirdly chosen him to be your bubble) , but definitely not after this.
