Poxgate 2010: The Chicken Edition July 14, 2010

I’m about to bitch, people… Big time.

What has my panties all twisted this fine (ok, hot & muggy) evening?

Selfish idiots who take their Chicken Pox infected kids out into public to start a fucking outbreak, is what has me so pissed off, tahnkyouverymuch!

G & I went to the super big box electronics store this evening to lust over scope out some new gadgets & what not. We were having a grand ol’ time until we rounded a corner and found a small boy (maybe 4 or 5), COVERED in Chicken Pox blisters. He was playing the electronic drums as his little sister (2’ish), who was very much NOT covered in The Pox, played with something else and their mom watched. The majority of El Poxo’s blisters were still blistery i.e. he was still contagious.

So, what did mommy do when she saw an OBVIOUSLY pregnant woman waddle towards her highly contagious ball of germs? Not.a.damn.thing! She let me waddle right into the space her kid had been contaminating without blinking an eye.

Why is this bad? It’s not like grown ups can get it, right? Well, you know, unless they’ve never had it… or they are immune compromised… or pregnant. Plus there’s the whole carrying it home to not yet immune kids factor. But, hey who gives a shit about infecting other people, daddy needs a new video game…

If you are sick: STAY HOME

If your kid is sick: STAY HOME

Nobody wants your fucking germs!
