Well after being dumped by the first Ryanair chat person I got on to a second person after waiting an hour.Just sitting in a Ryanair "chat" queue with 60 poor souls ahead of me. Just to ask a simple question.
The "BOT" was useless and so was the first person who made contact with me from their chat room......just passed me on to someone else.
I would say that there are many people who were given these vouchers and lost them or didn't bother to use them.They will all be used up over time....
Somehow, I get the feeling with people becoming more complacent the Covid virus will re-visit with dreadful consequences. I hope I'm wrong; it's just that gut feeling.I know I'm not. The risk of serious infection and death has reduced significantly and my actions have changed accordingly.
I agree . It is way too soon to be letting down our guard against Covid. If we go back in to lock-down in a few months time , which I hope we don't, the people who have let down their guard will be the same people who will be complaining the most about lock-down and restrictions.Somehow, I get the feeling with people becoming more complacent the Covid virus will re-visit with dreadful consequences. I hope I'm wrong; it's just that gut feeling.
No your not losing it , I witnessed similar yesterday both on public transport and in a shopping centre . I just cannot fathom these actions.So I'm out with my bike mechanic yesterday morning and when I arrive there is him, his business partner and another fellow chatting about their Covid experiences in particular how their feeling after they have recovered and the problems their having with breathing and tiredness
and as soon as they see me with my mask on, their questioning me "why sure we've all had Covid now so there's no point"
I'm outside the shop removing sealant from my wheel when a couple arrive with their child and have started a conversation with my mechanic
and of course it's about Covid and again in particular the problems that they are having and what they hear of other peoples recovery
And a joke is made about how I'm making them all feel bad about not wearing masks to which I respond that after hearing what they have all been saying I can't believe that they are not wearing masks especially given that one of them is a doctor
About half an hour later a non mask wearing woman arrives in to the shop with her bike to get serviced and precedes to tell us all that she's just come from a PCR test and is now awaiting her result because she's not feeling well
We went up to Stillorgan post office yesterday afternoon and as I'm walking by McDonalds a man beside me with both his hands in his pockets starts to have a good healthy prolonged cough and I say "you'd think after what we've all been through for the last two years you'd have the bleeping decency to cover your mouth with your hand". He just looks at me as if I've two heads
Am I losing it, have we forgotten that there still is a pandemic here or am I been over cautious about it all ??
It's funny you referenced this (Not) but the business partner mentioned that he's booked a full cardiac check up because he feels something is not right in that department since he got Covid, his appointment is end of June and as far as I can see doesn't wear a mask when dealing with his customers
This is a very large study and the results might be shocking to some. I think over the coming years the long term effects of Covid-19 on people will be known and some are not going to be pretty.
