I'm fed up of everyone.

I'm fed up of my parents seemingly trying to convince me I should be sending my son to pre-school, when although I'm a key worker I am lucky enough to be able to work from home indefinitely until this is all over.

I'm fee up of DSS's mum (who I get on very well with) insisting he goes to school when he could be at home with me, safe.

I'm fed up of my very elderly neighbour insisting ongoing out socialising and then calling my DH round in an 'emergency' and exposing him to whatever she has been exposed to. (The emergency was she couldn't get her telly to pick up a certain channel).

I'm fed up of people thinking I am being overly anxious and cautious when I'm just trying to do my fucking best to keep my family safe.

That's what it is then @OP she doesn't rate the relationship so drop it, she's making it obvious that she'd rather anyone look after the child

I dunno, I think she does rate our relationship but just doesnt think sending him to school is a big deal. I dont think it's intended on a comment on me looking after him - she probably thinks school will keep his routine (it won't). She thinks we are being overly cautious.

From her perspective though she is at a school as well so therefore doesnt see the dangers in the same way.

From your perspective transmission is doubled because its him and her. From hers it is no different. She has to think you are being overly cautious because she needs to be in school - does that make sense. She cant think like you because she cant be at home so she squashes it down

I'm with you OP- this country in general has shown it's true selfishness on mass - bar a few who are really trying to get to grips with this all.

I blame Boris. He's downplayed this from the get go, slowly drip feeding suggestions of safety precautions, singing Happy Birthday while washing your hands, in the hope that people will forget his original plan of 'herd immunity'.....which is becoming more and more obvious is still fully 'in action' by stealth...

How many people are out on the piss tonight....I'll tell you thousands in my city (another thread).

I give up- me and my two Dd's are socially distancing, mostly coronavirus related, increasingly to stay away from the selfish tweets who could not give a shit....
