Was just teasing a bit. Don't worry about me. Am just a crazy old fool.

Realize that you were just trying to be considerate of others.

You're right.
Am so far removed from smokers having to seek asylum just to get a smoke these days.

Honestly haven't known any smokers for years now.

Don't really need to hide much here to smoke things that have just recently been declared legal...
See it more common than regular cigs.

Glad I'm not alone there. Weird though, right? Where does the switch flip?

I guess you're right. Fear and dependency. Odd, the lack of trust in family and abundance of trust in government so suddenly. Eh, what do I know? I'm not there yet...


Well, I am 65, this is all an illusion, a prison of some kind, so I am coming back again anyway, why worry? Death is just a transition to the next life. Maybe I won't look at it that way when I am 89, don't know, not there yet. I don't see how I could possibly rationalize that the government is anything but a warden in a prison or a wolf on a free range tax farm. But then again, I have worked alongside evil and put it down in the bush, two sides of the same coin, nothing is what it seems.

Cheers - Dave

People have to really start MINDING THEIR OWN BUSINESS.

THAT'S THE PROBLEM THESE DAYS WITH MOST PEOPLE.

MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.

Simply put I am a product of my time and the environment I was brought up in.

I understand why you felt the need to find some seclusion and privacy.
I would have politely told the lady that it had absolutely nothing to do with her what you were doing and would she please go away - it seems you were polite and mild mannered.

I would have then simply told her to go # herself.
I would then have apologised to her children for having to hear such language but then explain if it wasn't for their mother being such an interfering, overbearing, self-righteous and insufferable person they wouldn't have had to hear it.

I would have politely asked her husband to try and talk reason into her and if that failed I would have calmly told him that I'd pull his head off his shoulders if he didn't just # off and leave me alone.

Plainly put it was none of their/her business what you were doing regardless of what you were smoking.

This pandemic has changed my Dad.
He's 77 years old and all his adult life he's loved a pint.
He won't go out at all and its beginning to affect him.
He needs to see his friends and talk bollocks to them....exactly like he used pre-Covid 19.

He's a sprightly 77 and in full control of all his faculties - touch wood - but for some reason he's lost the willingness to question the official line.
He was always a bit of a firebrand, I guess some of his passion rubbed off on me, and he didn't trust anything the government did or said.

My mother is even worse.

I honestly think the pandemic has brought home their own mortality.
I don't think they are unique in that.....and the government have played on these fears and used them to scare the crap out of our aged and infirm.

Interesting subject (not the Karen part, but the part about people changing). I too have noticed a change in people since the CHI-COM flu. People I knew as a certain way are completely different now, and not in ways I would have ever expected. Some good, some bad. Some who were rebels and militant about everything are now wet towels, and others who were scared of their own shadows before are now Atilla the Hun on blood-letting day.

I never really thought about this until now. I just chalked it up to those specific individuals, but now seeing others discussing the same things makes me wonder.

To a leftist, everyone else's business is their business.
