We are not in the total shielding category.
We still don't want to catch or spread CV19.
Im particularly worried for DH. He isnt officially in the shielding category but is the age and weight and sex that seems to get hit worst.
We are therefore doing our own errands. We keep these to essentials. Food, medicine, and posting things that needed signatures only.
We have recieved a lot of post during lockdown from shielding relatives who have had others go out and buy them things that they then get others to go and post for them.
Okay. Thats their choice. We have thanked them by phone/text/whatsapp but no posted thank you notes.
We have kept in touch with family digitally. We have made special videos and group calls for milestones etc.
We HAVE to go out to get our own prescriptions etc ourselves and we are glad to get home and get everything sanitised.
Anyway the girls and I have had a nasty letter from a shielding relative about us not writing to them. Apparently we should, as they are shielding and we are not so it is inconsiderate of us to not write to them. They are shielding after all.
They are not on whatsapp etc (fine, their choice)
They dont believe that texting or calling counts.
They have praised their own efforts in getting other people to go out and post their letters to us
AIBU to think that not being officially shielding doesnt make you immune to CV19. And going out is a worry. And we are not UR to NOT post things other than documents where docusign isnt available?
People who chose to not count text/calls as making an effort do not get to DEMAND that we risk ourselves or our community to become their isolation penpals!
I am just so annoyed.
CV19 isnt just happening to the shielding group. We are all on lockdown. Including those of us going out for essentials
AIBU to stop bothering with the texts and calls since they apparently dont count?
