Sick of hearing two words.

Is anybody else as tired of hearing two words that have no business being together, as I am! Especially as a morbid catch phrase.
"Social distancing"
The word social means, to come together.
Distancing, well I think that's obvious.
These words are polar opposites. And whatever brain child put them together should be taken out and,
____________. Fill in the blank.
No offense intended. Just my opinion. Getting tired of sitting around with my thumb up my ass.

Buzz words spread fast, regardless if they are accurate or not.

I'm with you, though. I'm going pretty crazy being stuck at home myself.

I am not sick of it, but do think it's funny that soo many people think this virus is like a Zombie plague where everyone who gets it, will die. With a 99.9% chance of surviving it, because I'm healthy and never smoked or vaped, my actual risks are people on cell phones driving into me.

I am sick of people complaining about everyone ‘working’ from home. Deal with it. Maybe the economy will eat shit and home prices will come down. All I’ve heard for four years is how Reno can’t sustain prices. Now we can’t sustain being shut down. I’m all for social distancing. Get together socially and don’t touch each other. It’s a great concept. Not everyone wants you to be 3 feet from them in line.

Your empathy for those folks that can't work at home, like service folks at casinos and hotels, those folks that right now can't pay bills and are worrying about how to pay rent or a mortgage, and keep shoes on their kid's feet, is so shallow it looks like Washoe Lake after a drought.

I feel sorry for you.

I'm just sick of people being ok with the government pushing constitutional boundaries to protect them. Anyone ok with that should just go live in China.
This! Seems like daily the seriousness of this whole thing is being walked back and not enough of us are questioning how we got to this point or what this means for the next time.

y'all ready to be wearing masks everywhere in public? We're going to eliminate "social distancing" and replace it with something stupid like "public hygeine" or something like that. Pretty much a fancy way to say you're responsible for other people being nasty. I'm going to contract some rare lung disease all of a sudden so I can't wear a mask. You can't just expect me to walk around with medical exemption cards. That's probably a HIPPA violation for you to look at that unless you're a medical professional.


You know...just like all those "service dogs" I see everywhere that look like a pure bred mutt from the pound. They don't need papers? I don't need papers. Both of us are exploiting the law for our own personal benefit.

I piss excellence.
The whole mask thing is funny to me. If I want my guys to wear any kind of respirator at work for safety they have to be tested by a dr to make sure they won't have heart problems and die. We also have to have some crazy stupid written program nonsense. These "face covers" they went people to wear are also completely stupid. Air is going to take the path of least resistance so if there are gaps anywhere they aren't stopping jack shit from spreading or someone acquiring microscopic viruses.

I couldn't agree more! The general public have not been trained in the proper use of ppe equipment. There for they are all doing it wrong. And not only wasting time. But wasting resources that front line workers desperately need.

How about people driving thier with gloves on. Now you've contaminated your car with everything your gloves have touched. Kinda pointless.
Case in point. I met my girlfriend at the store after work. She put on the mask and gloves, and got mad at me because I wouldn't. After touching everything in the store. When we got to her car she (with the gloves on) touched her car keys, the door handle, the steering wheel, and the trunk latch. Before taking off the gloves. And then she got even madder at me when I pointed out that she just contaminated her whole car. Not to mention everything the touched after we got home. The point is. Unless you are professionally trained and 100% OCD. You are just wasting time and resources. There is nothing we can do. If we get it, we get it. Chalk it up to blind stupid luck.
