Half-Way to Nowhere

Posted on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020

Dave!"Where are you going?"
"I just don't know."

I have been trying really, really hard to be understanding and accepting of people during these trying times. Nobody is thinking straight, everybody is on edge, and there's no way of knowing what people are going through in their lives.

That being said... holy shit are some people being truly awful right now.

    OK, I get it. Two of my closest friends have lost their everloving minds. One lives in Jacksonville, FL and her boyfriend lives in Orlando. She is driving to spend every weekend with him. She shares a residence with her 70-something mum. The other one is here in Texas, is married and the two of them recently went to Michigan to visit her family. She sent me photos – no face masks and no social distancing. My sister in Essex, England, has recently started making the drive to our 80-ish parents in Kent. Sometimes solo, sometimes with her kids and their partners. Again, no face masks and no social distancing. I’ve had to force myself to let it go because it was tearing into me every time I received photos. /unclenches jaw/

    And I do not understand why.

    Yes. Yes they are :-/

    My question is:

    Were these people always awful, deep down, but their awfulness was impeded and moderated by the broader culture?


    Were these people merely *potentially* awful, and their potential awfulness has been activated by the cultural moment we’re living through?
