I have a friend at my work who is a die-hard republican. I think he’s pretty funny until last night. Now I’m questioning everything. Again.
My job is gearing up for Biden’s new “everyone has to get vaccinated or be miserable” program. I never go upstairs. Upstairs is where the cafeteria is. Yesterday he texts me a picture of what appears to be some sort of plastic-covered-tent-thing in the cafeteria; something I’ve never seen before but then again I never go up there. Then he tells me that this is where all the unvaccinated people have to go get tested once a week now. Oh, and we have to pay for our own testing as well.
Because I trust this guy, I immediately confront this woman who is a die-hard Biden fan, a hardcore TDS (trump derangement syndrome) sufferer. She also refuses to get the vaccine which is a strange combination. She nearly pees her pants in anger at me. I mean, seething with rage instantly. I’m just saying I think this is being done intentionally to make vaccinated people look bad; why test people for the coof in a cafeteria? wtf?
Two hours later my friend tells me he was just kidding; they are doing some sort of construction in the cafeteria is all. Now this woman hates me. My friend fed me his own brand of fake news. Lesson learned; don’t trust news from any one source ever. Do your own research, reach your own conclusions, but don’t ever listen to just once side and formulate your opinions. Thank heaven I only talked to this one woman about this.
I trusted this dude because he’s a conservative… evidently not a good reason to trust anyone. And then I realize I have a propensity to trust any sort of conservative news source first ask questions later. Whether it’s left or right, all news in the USA has an agenda; don’t trust anyone. Research both sides.
