Sadly this is the way of the world right now. People, even friends, that you had thought were reasonable are revealing themselves to be ignorant. Hopefully your wife is in a WFH situation so she doesn’t have to be exposed to her supervisor. That is about the best outcome for now. I’m certainly hoping I don’t have to be in a situation where I’m forced to be in a closed space with some of these fools

Paranoia should never be “taken seriously”. Fearing only because it could be a loved one is selfish yet the horde can’t see this hypocrisy and prefers to ask government to bail everyone out with unproven vaccines.
