An interesting question Donnybrook, yes perhaps MikieO would care to share the thought process in why it's ok to go out and about when they have been mandated to stay at home for 2 weeks?Donnybrook wrote: ↑Sun May 17, 2020 12:08 pmI was wondering about your thought process on this. You are obviously breaking quarantine as you say you have a week to go. Presumably you have no symptoms but must be aware that you might have the virus but not be showing symptoms and can pass it to others. So, I was wondering why you go out anyway.MikieO wrote: ↑Sat May 16, 2020 9:01 pmI got out early this am to head off to San Antonio and Líder. I used the carretera and the kiosk girls warned me that there was a checkpoint a couple of km down the Rd with no way to circumvent it.
A good save, seeing as I am under house quarantine for another week.
I've been reading about the stages of grief and how it applies to the pandemic, maybe the protestors around the place breaking the curfew/quarantine breakers like MikieO are still only in the first few stages, where as those ahead of the pack are already at the acceptance stage and adapting to the new reality.
Theres only a very few things that are in our circles of influence that we can control, quarantines and curfews are not some of them (no matter what the internet says) therefore from a purely productive measure its a waste of energy trying to change or rebel against them.
But hey whatever, be my guest, make your point, be the hero that knows best and make that point, just dont complain when you get arrested and you have to make that point from a cell.
Ive reached the conclusion that you Gotta wear a mask in the super, just wear it, gotta stay home after travel for two weeks just friggin do it. But I do understand why people dont comply, most of us have been through the stages.
Also in part I have reached the conclusion that you dont draw attention to yourself, I know the primitive mob like mentality that exists in this country especially in poorer neighborhoods, and more so in times of fear and uncertainty. A gringo out and about breaking the rules doing their own thing because they feel like it , simply doesn't help any of us. The same way gringos I know on social media were sent death threats after the dickshit started shooting up the protesters in Reñaca. Anyway, YMMV
