This is the first time I have posted although I have watched from the sidelines for a while now. I just needed to let off some steam. I presently live in a level 2 area in Scotland and DH and I have friends living in an adjacent level 3 area, so we cannot meet just now. While both were in level 3, we met for coffee which was lovely, but it’s nice for us to have moved to a better level.
This couple have come to my town for various things though. Last week she accompanied her DH to a barbers in our town. Apparently according to her, this was an “essential”. There are plenty of barbers where they live that are open in Scotland’s level 3.
Now they are coming for tyres for their car and for a chiropodist too. Both of which they could find easily in their area. They had made appointments before the change but I still feel they are wrong in doing what they are doing.
I’m biting my tongue - I do tend to speak before I engage my brain sometimes - but am finding it difficult to continue to do so! They are a lovely couple and I don’t want to hurt them but if everyone just nipped into the next level, it would just defeat the purpose of having levels.
I would love to nip into their level as they have much better shopping but I’ll stay in my own level and hope things improve there to allow me to go.
Why must some people break rules. They did it in the first wave when we were in lockdown too.
They have both had the virus now - twice! Once during the first wave and once just a few weeks ago. The first time, no tests were really being done, and the second time they were tested and both confirmed positive. He is in his 70s and she is in her late 60s. Neither of them are in the best of health.
Sorry if I’ve gone on too much but oh, I feel like shouting at her.
