A Refined Opinion

, , , , , | Related | August 20, 2021

My dad is, well, let’s just say he’s a “denier” about the current health situation, and he has spent quite a while trying to convince me not to get vaccinated. Like parent, like child, of course, and we’re both too stubborn to listen to each other. He’s currently giving me the cold shoulder because he finally found out I got the jab behind his back. It’s also important to note here that I am studying Public Health.

Mom: “You know, I think he’s more upset about the fact that you refused to even listen to him.”

Me: *Voice dripping with sarcasm* “Ah, yes, because I’m going to trust the word of a man who works in a refinery and who hasn’t taken a health or science class in — what, thirty-five years — over the word of my professors who have degrees and years of experience in the field.”

My mom just shrugged at that. Maybe now that I am vaccinated, he’ll finally leave me alone.
