Ahh, these days.. it used to be 'being politically correct'. Now its the mundane things you kinda don't think about that people now frown upon..

I'm 'photo sensitive': I sneeze as soon as I step outside, or see a really bright light. So, walking the dog, I step outside, and within a minute or two, I let out a sneeze. The others out walking then give me a dirty look. "Oops,sorry!! NOT Covid!!"

The wife has a tickle in her throat; the wine didn't go down quite right, a sesame seed is just so in her mouth, or a little spit was swallowed wrong. And now she's paranoid about coughing outside the house! "Oops,sorry!! NOT Covid!!"

Shopping at the grocery store. You pickup a can of corn (or whatever). It's dented, you didn't see the dent. Do you put it back & take another? Do you hide it? Drop it off in the bakery department? Or just keep it, and take another.. (I have a dented can of beer because i felt bad putting back)

A neighbour is home, and is an exceptionally good baker, so she bakes & bakes & bakes (what else is there to do!). She then starts to give out her treats to the neighbours.. I'll assume it's not contaminated!

:D :D

This is the end result of people allowing the news sources and politicians to run their lives. It's also why I don't listen to it at all and feel much better for it.
