Can’t Even Be Bothered

The Charlatans – Can’t Even Be Bothered

We’re back home after a few days up at my mom’s in Maine. The kids and I popped our heads into a few stores while we were there and I was very disappointed in how few people were wearing masks. I👏don’t👏care👏if👏you’re👏vaccinated👏you👏should👏still👏wear👏a👏mask. We were at Target (yes, on Black Friday, though not early so it was busy but not crowded) and I counted maybe five customers besides the three of us who were wearing masks. We went to a GameStop, a couple of employees had on masks and almost no one else.

What is the matter with people? I just can’t comprehend how, after all this time, people can be so cavalier with their health. I get how they can be so self-centered as to not give a fuck about their fellow citizens, because we’ve had an even longer time to observe that, but to not even care enough about yourself to just wear a fucking mask? They just can’t be bothered to take two seconds and put on a thin little mask? Do they think they’re invincible?

I’m so fucking sick of the selfishness. Tired of the cluelessness. There’s no excuses at this point.


  1. It’s the ignorantly stubborn “I’d cut off my nose to spite my face” absolute refusal to learn or incorporate new information into one’s life that will kill both people and democracy and just maybe themselves but that’s just easier (and smart, right?).
