12. I am half vaccinated. Get my second

Moderna on April 9.

Meantime, I am still coping with thoughtless people in my apt building. The people at the end of my hallway are in a cul de sac, where two other apt doors are across from each other, perpendicular to the end apt. For over 4 hours, a group of teens sat on the floor in the cul de sac without masks, talking and generally horsing around. This is a seniors complex. Their mother was visiting her mother and her kids brought their friends with them.

The kids were blocking the doors of two apartments where seniors with risky health issues live. They were also obstructing access to the laundry room around the corner from them. I kept telling myself to ignore them and avoid problems. I had already spoken to their grandmother a year ago when she had a HUGE family dinner on Easter during the shutdown, with people coming and going all day.

But cases in my community have doubled in the past few weeks. Kids can be asymptomatic carriers. I finally went out my door, double-masked, and saw their mother with them, talking in the open doorway of her mother's apt. So I quietly and calmly suggested that maybe they did not understand how the virus works. I mentioned asymptomatic YOUNG carriers, the building's mask requirements, and how the virus lingers in the air for 5 hours. The mother said she understood all that.

So I asked why her kids and friends sat in the hall without masks for several hours. The grandmother just laughed. I said, "So you know, but you just don't care." Then I said I was calling the management office in the morning.

They have violated covid safety rules so often and so flagrantly that they were warned several months ago that if it continued, they would be evicted as soon as the eviction ban ends. I will not miss them.

Sorry for the rant. I'm just so tired of dealing with them.
