Some Say to do it, Others Say to Not
We are referring of course to COVID and the situation of deciding should we wear a mask or should we not? Even here in New York City, a large amount of people in Manhattan don’t do the “mask thing” anymore. But I do, and the majority of humans I know, do so as well.
Quality of Life and Value
In the end we are all seeking a quality of life or value. There are many now, here in the greatest city in the world, that feel that they have paid the price of staying indoors for more months than they want to count, and now it is time to get what they are owed: being mask free. I can understand that. Where’s the quality of life when wearing a mask? What good does it do living in Manhattan if masks and staying indoors is what we face day in and day out. There really is no quality of life there. It is like buying a product but not getting value for it.
The Slot Machine of COVID
It used to be only on certain networks that when it came to what we then called the “Corona Virus,” was not anything to be worried about and to feel free to go maskless indoors and in very close quarters. But now here in the Big Apple, those who used to preach, “thou must where thy mask” are throwing caution to the wind. They are cashing in on their investment of staying within four walls for a year or more, and now are getting the their payday of value, they are not wearing those uncomfortable things any longer. Jackpot!
Not Going to Take it Anymore
It’s really all about wanting quality of life. If you make a purchase you expect to get value for what you have spent. And the same goes now for people all over the city. They see themselves of having paid the price of being shut-ins, and now they are cashing in on what they feel they deserve and are saying bye bye to the N95s.
Caught it Anyway
Maybe I am a sap, but I continue to wear my mask that I have to constantly adjust the area that covers my nose so my glasses do not cloud up too much, resulting in needing to spend time later cleaning the lenses. That is not quality of life. I have paid the price too, so where is my value exchange? The funny thing is though. As a mask wearing snob, I ironically caught COVID a few weeks ago anyway.
Where’s My Quality of Life?!
The symptoms like soar throat, fever, coughing, cold chills and so on, occurred for one evening, during which time I was tested positive. And then the next morning I was free of symptoms, but did not want to give it anyone else so I stayed indoors. Where’s my quality. Where’s my value exchange, I paid the price? Oh wait, I stay indoors most of the time anyway!
