Amazing What Happens When People Wash Their Hands

, , , , | Working | April 13, 2021

It’s about a year into the major global health crisis and two of my coworkers and I are on a break. One of them is very conspiracy-minded about the whole crisis.

Coworker #1: “Yeah, it’s kind of weird that the pharmacy’s shelves are filled with cold and flu medication.”

Coworker #2: “What do you mean?”

Coworker #1: “Well, it’s obvious that no one’s buying it right now, what with [crisis] and stuff.”

Me: “Or the staff is just stocking the shelves.”

Coworker #1: “No, no. People aren’t getting colds right now; it’s all [crisis], instead.”

Me: “Or the measures we’re taking are helping reduce the number of colds.”

Coworker #1: “That’s not it at all. All colds are being listed as [crisis], so people aren’t buying cold medication.”

I just looked at my other coworker and wandered off to find something to do.
