A handful of states have decided to take the plunge and end their stay-at-home policies, tossing caution to the wind, letting their citizens run amok, so they can get their haircuts, tattoos and drink refills, among other “pertinent” things. I’m sure these fools are all gearing up for Friday, possibly even camping out at their salon, so they can be the first patron in the door. Little do they know that some of these places are still refusing to open. Little do they know that many of the restaurants that may open will not have their favorite dishes available because they are short on supply. These fools are expecting these places to reopen and have it be just as it was back in March when they closed. These fools are expecting to go to these places and be safe. Boy, are these fools in for a surprise.
Let the fools have their day. They already have by holding their “protests”, demanding a freedom that they already have. Only a fool would “protest” the very means that is keeping them safe. Only a fool would hold a “protest” in a state that isn’t going to change their stay-at-home policy because they and a bunch of their buddies decide to block the entrance to a hospital. Only a fool would show up armed at a “protest”. That doesn’t make them a “protester”. It makes them a terrorist. And a fool.
Other than foolish, the signs have been comical: “I need a haircut”. Have you ever heard of a pair of scissors? Then cut it. “We need our teeth cleaned”. Holy fuck. Do you not brush your teeth? Shit, you only see the dentist twice a year for a cleaning and most people don’t even do that. The statements have been hysterical as well. My favorite is the fool who insists he needs to have restaurants open so he can get his free drink refills, because he’s tired of ordering two drinks at the drive-thru. That one doesn’t even win for bad excuse of the year, fool.
So to the fools I say “go for it”. Please be the foolish dummies that you are and demonstrate to the rest of us how it’s done. Better you fools than the majority of us.
