And accusing others of not taking it seriously while being noncompliant themselves.

People who make concessions for safety over the holidays, knowing (or denying) that it is taking a risk for themselves, their families and our communities. In the meantime, our hospital beds are filling up, frontline workers are suffering, and soon health care workers may be forced to make decisions about who gets care and who they have to allow to die. This is what we have become. A nation of...

Spending money on Christmas gifts for people who are never grateful. (I seriously think we could give them a million dollars cash, and they’d complain that the wanted 50s instead of 20s.)

Thank you for letting me complain.

My biggest complaint is something that should be under my own control: my weight. Big fat UGH (with the emphasis on fat).

Idiots who refuse to wear a mask correctly.
People who refuse to understand that their selfishness prolongs the pain for everyone else.

I got a lotta problems with people! But not you, PTers. YOU are loved!

1- People who talk via speaker phone out in public. I've heard about dr appts, fights with spouse/partner, and one that tempted me to butt in about a child's teacher who "doesn't know sh!t."

2- My cats don't listen when I say it's cold and you probably don't wanna go outside. They whine to go out, then whine 5 minutes later when they realize it is indeed COLD OUTSIDE.

3- People who don't follow COVID guidelines are keeping me from seeing my family and that sucks. We need this COVID thing to go away, and we all need to do our part.

Whew! I feel better! Gotta go warm up for feats of strength.

People who are hypocritical and make others feel bad for the choices they make when they themselves are doing the same thing.

I still have not received an Amazon package I ordered back in November. It was supposed to arrive between December 17 and 21. It is still not here and Amazon has no tracking information because it was shipped from overseas and was not eligible for Amazon Prime. Now we will have no Christmas crackers for Christmas Day.

I haven't seen a chocolate orange anywhere! I don't like to shop because of the pandemic so I'm certainly not going to be able to scour stores to find one. But when I've been out buying food, necessities, and the few gifts that I could get online I haven't seen a SINGLE chocolate orange! This is a serious problem, 2020!

this and the justifications of the ones who are looking for loopholes or willfully misunderstanding the very clear restrictions laid out by the medical professionals. Don't get me started on the anti-maskers/anti-vaxxers who don't seem to understand that rights come with responsibilities.

People wearing masks under their noses. This enrages me almost more than people who don't wear them. (We've had a state mask mandate since the summer!)

People on social media who still compare Covid to the flu.

People on social media who always bring up the survival rate in order to downplay Covid. 300,000+ dead just in the US is significant, even though a very high percentage survive.

just one major grievance

I just want to know why is it so dang cold in Maine?

I lived in Georgia for 30 years. My bones do not understand temperatures this cold. They freeze up and start shivering with fear, not understanding that summer will come. Is it worth the beauty that I find up here, the relatives that live here, the morgage free home, the common sense of people dealing with covid, did I mention the beauty of the ocean, the fall foliage, the woods, the bogs, the moose and fox and deer, the mountains in the west, the feeling that this is home simply because I've come up here every summer of my life?

Today, I'm not too sure. I'm still shivering and I'm inside with the heater pointed at me.

I abhor those who do not understand the importance of doing whatever we can to protect others.

Also: Teacher...I lost my materials, couldn’t get on zoom, had to relocate to a clean room... add your own teaching challenge.

People who judge others without knowing all of the facts. The fact that years of experience in a field sometimes does not get appreciated and someone with no experience gets picked to do a project over someone more experienced because they are buddies with the people making the decisions, and other reasons.

I agree with the comments about people who are hypocritical and judgmental! I’ll add rude too.
