I was reassured to read today that my husband and I aren’t the only ones having disagreements over the appropriate response to Corona. Everything from how much peanut butter to buy to whether or not to cancel vacation is now up for vigorous debate.
In many relationships there is one person who is more conservative and cautious; in our marriage, that clearly would be me. My husband on the other hand is much more laid back so needless to say, we’ve had our share of heated exchanges.
Which brings me to the husband and wife team who flew from JFK to Palm Beach this week..AFTER he received a text confirming that his Corona virus test came up positive.
so many questions, starting with:
Is this guy going to do some jail time or at a minimum pay a hefty fine?
But also, I wondered about possible conversations (arguments?) this duo may have had prior to heading to the airport..
Did the wife say “Wow honey, maybe we should wait until your CORONA (!!) results are back before we call a cab? I’d feel just awful if you infected anyone else, wouldn’t you too doll face?”
Did she whisper “Gosh sweetie cakes, shouldn’t we assume since you feel like crap and have a fever that you’ve actually got Corona? I’m really uncomfortable about this.. maybe we could just sit tight and not go anywhere?”
Or how about “Hey you dumb, little Smurf, if I end up in the slammer over this as an accessory to your selfish, entitled, bone-headed decision to fly, you’d better hope we don’t have the same cell?”
My husband and I wrangled back and forth for five days over whether we should sell our tickets to Miss Saigon last week. I didn’t want to sit in a crowded theater- he thought I was being paranoid. Five days of flare-ups over tickets..not plane tickets..tickets to a silly play! (He eventually sold them)
Was there ANY back and forth,
all out fight(?) with this pair from New York before they hopped on Jet Blue exposing all the other passengers?
Or are they one of those rare couples who are totally in sync over their Corona response…
or in this case, complete lack of it??
*** UPDATE- Jet Blue has banned this man from flying with them for life..BIG DEAL. At a minimum I think he should be fined..an amount large enough to scare any other selfish dingbat from doing the same thing. I’m thinking $20,000…what do you think?
