That’s the bottom line for me.
When these mandates end and we’re all back to our daily routine, there’s no way I’ll be able to ‘hang out” with anyone who fought against vaccines or thought #Ottawa was a good idea. It’s got nothing to do with their vaccination status. I just don’t trust them.
I’ll eat next to an unvaccinated person. But I don’t trust anyone who thinks their lives are more important than everyone else’s and don’t want anyone who truly believes that in my social circles.
I don’t want to be around someone who took great pride in telling me their freedom came before mine or someone who thinks living responsibly is living oppressed.
That kind of person doesn’t want to be better. They want what they want and don’t care who they have to fuck over to prove how important their individual freedoms are compared to the greater good.
The pandemic AFTER the pandemic is going to be a social mindfuck. Pandemic victims who think this is happening to them will blame the responsible for being ratio’d out of friend groups.
How can I extend a hand to someone like this after doing my part knowing they didn’t give a single fuck about theirs?
Roy Asselstine & friends sure have a lot to say, but none of it is clever.

The pandemic was good for one thing. Helping 90% of us ‘shorten the friendship bench.” I literally said “I need better friends’ about 6 months ago.
I got a call from a friend of 30 years from my old ‘born again’ days. he spent 2 minutes asking how my family was and 45 minutes chastising my science-based perspective instead of ‘God’s word’. he ended the conversation with a bible verse and said ‘you’re going to hell if you keep this up.’
Two days later he apologized saying ‘I was drunk when I called’. I don’t need that in my life, so Garth is out.
As is any friend or family member who thinks being a raging selfish asshole is just an ‘alternative perspective’ or ‘God’s will’.
You opted out of functional living when you told us you didn’t give a fuck about anyone other than yourself when we needed you to be responsible. Not only did you do NOTHING you got in the way, prolonging everything we’ve been fighting to get rid of by sacrificing ourselves for the greater good.
My job is to get better at life every day. To enjoy the experience of living this life. I believe it’s a fucking miracle that we made it here. The right amoeba had to pair the right amoeba, billions of years ago. The right lizard had to mate with the right lizard, the caveman with the cavewoman, and our ancestors had to fight through plagues, wars, etc JUST so you could be here.
To not get better at life knowing how fucking INSANE it is that we are here is a crime and these weiners hate their lives so why the fuck would I spend time with anyone who hates life? It’s a zero-sum friendship and it’s not up to me to make anyone feel wanted.
And I’m not alone. The VAST silent majority is thinking the same thing.
I feel sorry for some of them. I don’t feel sorry for others. We all make our own decisions and every decision/action comes with a tax payable by the decision-maker.
If you’ve been an asshole over the last two years, the asshole tax is due and there’s no way to stop it. EVERYONE looks at you differently because of you. Not Trudeau or Fauci or Big Pharma. YOU acted like assholes in front of vaccine clinics. You put your neighbors at risk. You don’t give a fuck about your family or the greater good. That’s what’s destroying your relationships. Not 30 million unsympathetic Canadians. We did our part. You don’t give a fuck about your part and the tax is due.
I didn’t like hanging around with most of those people, to begin with, so I guess it’s a Win/Win.
It’s not that you’re not vaccinated.
We just don’t trust you to make a good decision in the best interest of anyone around you, other than you, and I can’t be around that.
