CANTANKEROUS FLOUTERS!

While I was off work for the two weeks I was in self-isolation due to showing symptoms of COVID-19 along with my mum who showed the same symptoms the same night, you can imagine how frustrated and how furious I’ve been with all these flouters putting our lives at risk.

What these flouters fail to understand is that, like anyone else working in an essential job, I work in an essential job where I’m required to leave the house on my contracted work days so that I can keep my family and myself financially afloat by restocking shelves, ensuring that my workplace can be stocked full of food and all the main essential resources we all need to keep ourselves alive and keep ourselves going as we walk through this global pandemic.

What has become a traditional bug-bearing for me, pardon the pun, is that there are kids and adults who aren’t working in jobs who are flouting the government’s regulations to stay inside and save lives by instead going out to parks, skating and playing around when they were instructed to stay inside.

I would never ever wish death on anyone, but these flouters who continue to plead ignorance shall not turn around and say it’s anyone else’s fault for them potentially contracting the coronavirus when they chose to ignore the government and therefore, they only have themselves to blame for if they contract it when they know essential key-workers like myself are at risk.

You can imagine I’m upset and furious by my expression of words here because me and my wonderful mother showed the symptoms but weren’t able to get tested for the virus because we weren’t allowed to leave the house, myself, two weeks, while my mum, twelve weeks or more, due to the fact she is the most vulnerable because of her MS, her relapse, her weakened immune system and the laryngitis she has just recently recovered from.

Even though we’ve both fully recovered, it’s not to say we won’t end up getting it again.

This is my message to the flouters:

IT’S ABOUT TIME YOU LISTEN AND TAKE NOTE OF WHAT YOU’RE INSTRUCTED AND FOLLOW IT!

HOW DARE YOU FEEL IT’S ALRIGHT IN YOUR EYES TO GO OUT AND MEET WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY DURING THE LOCK-DOWN WHILE WE, THE ESSENTIAL KEY-WORKERS AND THE MOST VULNERABLE ARE AT RISK EVERY DAY WITH YOUR STUPID AND BRAINLESS ANTICS BEING THE REASON WHY WE ARE AT RISK OF COVID-19.

STAY HOME AND IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT AND YOU WOULD RATHER CONTINUE TO BE THE CANTANKEROUS FLOUTER YOU ARE, THEN GET STUFFED!

I know it might not seem like the right thing to say, but the only way we can get these flouters to listen is to put the frighteners on them by saying that if they want to plead ignorance and end up testing positive for the virus that it is their fault entirely for choosing not to listen, or they follow the instructions set out by the government and stay inside, and that they should only make their journey if it’s essential.

I don’t understand how these flouters feel it’s perfectly acceptable to go out during the lock-down when they know full well they shouldn’t as we’re more at risk the more they choose not to stay inside baring in mind myself and anyone else working essential jobs are on the frontline trying to keep this country going.

I will continue to remain unapologetic for speaking up as I refuse to be silenced, but these flouters are cantankerous and only care about themselves and not the lives of others who work essential job roles.

To the non-essential Covidiots who choose to ignore the government’s instructions:

YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!

Are you as furious as I am about these Covidiots who choose to put our lives at risk knowing we work essential jobs?

Please feel free to sound off below as I’m keen to hear your response.
