Those that do.

Those that do: Swoon 28

There are planners and there are waiters. There are doers and there are watchers. There are those who have always washed their hands, and others who are just learning this trick. There are leaders and there are those that do not take responsibility.

I am so disappointed in those that are the second half of every one of those statements. You have gotten away with this behavior your whole lives, now it is time to cut it out.

This is not political. This is human nature.

If you are sick… stay home. I don’t give a hoot how strong you are or how “not too bad” you feel. Stay home. Think of others.

If you have the ability to shop and hoard… share with your neighbors, ask if they need anything, give to a food bank or a church. Think of others.

If you are a planner and a doer… help people with less executive functioning skills understand the issues… share articles, help cancel trips, send them lists of things that should be addressed. Think of others.

If you are a business owner… protect your employees. Emergency workers and health care workers took an oath (bless their souls) to put their lives on the line if needed. Cashiers did not. If you can not close, keep your employees safe… give them gloves, wipes, masks, and have them drink a lot of water. If you can sell these items to the public for profit, you can give it to your employees. If you are making a killing selling soap and groceries give your employees who show up a raise. Think of others.

If you are a leader… lead. Admit that the future is unknown and that being safe is always a better than people losing their lives. Leaders stop these stoic ridiculous press conferences where you make slippery statements…make the safe choices and do not pass your job onto those below you. Think of others.

Stay home if you can. FaceTime, watch movies, create something, sleep. Stay home. If you literally can not stay home because of work or uncontrollable needs… then wash your hands with soap… every time you enter from the outside, before and after you eat, before and after you use the bathroom… this should not be rocket science but it clearly is to some. WASH YOUR HANDS with soap. Think of others.

Feel free to laugh at those “overreacting”, if feeling superior floats your boat go for it. We might be wrong, we might be overreacting… but we also might be saving your life, or the life of someone you love. I am thinking of you.

Sometimes enjoying things on your own is a good thing. Take this time to create, organize, and think.
