This topic is for all general discussion regarding the current COVID-19 pandemic. There are of course numerous other related topics for discussing specific aspects of this pandemic in more detail. And there are other parts of this forum for more 'off-topic' discussions.

I have little involvement with the NHS, well, as little as I can these days, but I fear you're right - someone mentioned earlier about the difference between being intelligent and being 'aware'; lots of 'intelligent' people have sleep-walked into taking "jabs". But you're right, people like me making polite anti-vax comments will wash off the backs of seasoned NHS health professionals. The risk of not making car payments, Sky TV, store cards, etc, is too much for most folk. 

 

For what it's worth, I hope your girl doesn't end up jabbed. 

 

And Whatsa (if you don't mind me calling you this), I like your posts and wouldn't want to spill your pint!

I donnt use alcohol so spilling me pint is going to prove difficult,but knock over my mug of coffee and we will have a strong pointing session accompanied by stern looks !

 

At the end of the day my daughter is big enough and daft enough to make her own decisions,whatever they are if they go wrong i just have to be there to help pick up the pieces with her,if thats possible,its a duty i will carry till my dying day gladly rgardless of if she is jabbed or unjabbed

Its interesting that hardly any of us have gotten "sick" until people starting getting the needle. 

 

I had a particularly ferocious cold a couple of weeks back commonly known in the uk as man flu.

 

But prior to this i have been fine. 

My parents got the kill shot. Pfizer it was. I was sick after seeing them . I was pretty shitty, 2 weeks with mild flu like symptoms. 

For unrelated reasons I had a blood test done last week and rest assured my blood was thoroughly tested for just about everything and I'm all good. I have not been magically Pfizer'ed from a far. Lol

 

Thought I would add a little story of mine. 

Got my blood test done and had to pay 2 .50 euro and didnt have the cash so said to the nice nurse I'll just pop next door grab some change. This all being in french of course as that's where I live.  This is a little office in a local small village. So I pop next door grab some tobacco and enter back into the waiting room. As I enter a dutch tourist and his wife are in there. I walk in and he immediately shouts at me to get out. In French. I reply in french do not talk to me. He hears my accent and talks back to me in English. Says very angrily get out now. Only 2 allowed in there is a pandemic. He was extremely aggressive and rude. He was maybe 50byears old .

So I said to him the only way I'll be walking outside is with him. I told him hes a fascist, and he should be careful who hes talking to like that. I said the world is in a shit show right now because of people like him and that maybe he has gotten away with speaking to people like that before but it ends with me. I invited him to come outside, he declined and stared at the floor. I said to him I'm angry today because peolle are talking about vaccine passports and people like him want my child jabbed.  I told him the tide is starting to turn and that people such as himself will go down on the wrong side of history.

I entered into the nurses room and paid berm wishes her a good day 

Turned round and left. On the way out I reminded him he was lucky to not have his mask shoved down his throat and to my amazement he started to apologise profusely. He said he doesn't know what got into him and he cant believe the way he behaved towards me.

I said ok but I wonder if I was not ready to stand up for myself if he would have been sorry. He kept apologising so I accepted and told him its time to wake up and left.

 

No idea why I'm sharing that,  I guess its to say sometimes the only language these people understand. I've seen so much intimidation and bullying going on and people just take it.  Not me, I refuse to be talked to like that without biting back. He was shocked. But its shocking to me he was shocked. Where I'm from you bloody well stand up for yourself.

I've presently got a continuous cough and feel like crap and normally would call it manflu,but other people would insist i have a scariant and prefer to probe and poke me and get me to imprison myself and even get jabbed.

 

Me i'll just put it down to smoking too much of the good stuff (and i dont mean that horrid weed stuff) ,crap diet and sedentary lifestyle and i'll kill it with massive doses of vitamins and minerals,same as i did last year and the year before,I'd be extremely worried though if i had been jabbed,is this the start of the overwhelming of the nhs? what with a continuous cough being a symptom of the latest scariant? and have they rebranded manflu ?

👍 Good to hear that. Interesting that he had a change of heart but like you said - he probably wasn't expecting you to stick up for yourself! 😄 Some people need to be snapped out of their stupor.

My sister tells me I am wasting my time caring about freedom and vaccines being harmful. I should instead go on holiday and my dad says take the vaccine. I said even though your grandson grows up with the mask and social distancing, so long as you can have a holiday you are happy. My sister suggests then I should go on holiday instead of caring about freedom or my own safety. 💩🤦‍♂️

Having the flu is a piece of piss. You just put on lots of clothes, climb into bed and sweat like a bitch for a few days. Just make sure you drink lots of water and then after that you get your appetite back and get on with things

 

people have gone soft

Just imagine a whole generation are now getting used to NOT having the monday ailment of choice for throwing a sickie,anything they state as the reason for not turning in to work on a monday will be deemed to be covid or a form of covid ,they have robbed a whole generation of going on the piss at the weekend and being so hungover that work really isnt a good idea,The penalties involved now are scary,house arrest after having your head lanced and self isolation with your only contact with the outside world being immigrant gentlemen working for deliveroo and spitting in your food
