A Small List of the Pandemic People Who Are Making Me Dislike People Even More

I should probably avoid social media, but when I have trouble reading books and I’m watching more TV when not working I also find myself scrolling through it more often. Even worse, I’ve started reading the comments. I’ve unfollowed many people on Facebook and Twitter, but I still read way too many opinions and I really don’t like anyone right now. Here are the people I can think of who lead me here.

The people who think it is all a hoax and will disappear after the election.

The people who think we should stay locked down forever.

The people who refuse to wear masks.

The people who refuse to admit that some people are pushing for reopening because they are desperate not to lose their business and instead call them “people protesting to get a haircut”

The people who say we should just all shut up and listen to the government(as long as the government they are talking about shares their political party)

The people who only read headlines on Facebook and yell at others for their opinions when they have no real knowledge besides what the headline reported.

The people who highlight whatever number makes their argument sound better while ignoring numbers that might say otherwise – this is on both sides of the reopening argument.

The people who seem to be hoping for more people to get sick and die so they will be right.

The shamers and scolders who live to report people they think aren’t isolating properly.

People who write blog posts about the people they dislike.

There are more, but I need to get back to work.

Dumb Complaints from Area People

I moved near a racetrack and I’m annoyed that there are racetrack sounds. Someone should do something about this. It’s ridiculous that this place that has existed for 50 years isn’t being forced to close down because I’m too stupid to realize a racetrack makes racetrack sounds.

Same as above for airports.

Same as above for train tracks.

I’m too stupid to use a roundabout with more than one lane, so please reduce all the roundabouts to one lane so there aren’t accidents. Who cares that people use these all over the world. They are just too confusing and we shouldn’t be expected to drive like this.

The entrance to the new gas station is a problem because there are too many accidents. They need to limit access because people can’t figure out how to turn in and out from various locations.

The entrance to the shopping center is terrible. They need to fix it because there are too many traffic problem there. Who cares that shopping centers around the country have the same type entrance. We can’t figure out how to use them here.

I left my car unlocked with valuable stuff inside and someone opened the door and took my stuff.(I know the thief is the bad guy here, but seriously, lock your doors)

Why did you have a fireworks show on the Saturday before the 4th of July instead of on the 4th of July? We should only have fireworks on the 4th of July!

My neighbor doesn’t bring their trash cans in fast enough for me. I’m going to publicly shame them on Next Door because that is so much better than checking to see if they might need help with the task.

I try to stay away from neighborhood posts, but I keep Next Door to stay aware of what is happening and sometimes I get sucked in. Some of these are old complaints from the email list. People just want to find a reason to be unhappy.
