- Reaction score
I'm currently sporting the 'I sleep in a park' lookI know that feeling. I wanted to get booked in for the 12th but every slot went in about 20 minutes! Already got my next one booked in already just in case.
Looking forward to a nice short neat haircut again and a neatly trimmed beard. I currently sport the "through a hedge backwards" effect.
I suspect there is a lot in this comment. It probably accounts for the 'mate's' subsequent reaction in that he knows what he did is wrong and maintaining contact with the OP will just perpetuate that in the immediate term.Reading between the lines, I wonder if your mate pushed you for an answer as he knew he did wrong and wanted your support as validation. You probably told him what he knew......and was denying to himself.
I think Tomindales has this summed up quite well... People make their own decisions. Unless someone is going around actively coughing on people or licking the shelves in Tesco, I think we should be a little more tolerant. I frequently have friends who have different views to me (politics, Brexit etc. etc.) but it would have to be really bad for me to lose a friendship over it.Where does one draw the line? Wearing a mask below the nose is minor. Organising a house party or going on holiday is quite another.
I've gone 5 month without a haircut, our chairman at work asked if I was living under a bridge, my wife banned me from photos with the kids. But the trigger was a safeguarding inspection by the Local authority of our school and as the pastoral governor, I didn't fancy being told to get a short back and sides.Never once in all the time spent in lockdown have i had any concerns about getting a haircut of course being Bald has helped a lot
ditto, except I've cut my own hair with clippers for somewhere around 18 years now. When we went to shutdown, I.....cut my hair with clippers.Never once in all the time spent in lockdown have i had any concerns about getting a haircut of course being Bald has helped a lot
That's not what I gathered from the first post. I gathered the guy was talking his thoughts, OP didn't like it and stopped responding in general, and his buddy asked him why he wasn't responding. I didn't get the sense that buddy demanded to keep talking about his covid behavior, but rather didn't expect that it would stop all conversation.You think he's being a dick about it but you're willing to let it go.
He thinks you're being a dick about it but he's not willing to let it go.
While I do agree with this. There was little consensus last summer for that to happen, it is now generally regarded as a failure of leadership at the start of Covid by our government. It meant people were confused on what to do, it was hard to see rule breaking (bending) as socially unacceptable. There were (still are) strong voices in the governing party arguing against lock down and BJ kept giving in to them throughout the spring and early summer.But maybe there would have been less deaths if breaking Covid rules was socially unacceptable and freinds told freinds and stood there ground.
Totally agree, it was hopeless last year. But I do think they have got things together this year - which is leadership in its way. Not the strong Churchill, Blair, Thatcher or Lloyd-George type of muscular leadership we have had in past crises, but a lot better, maybe Callahan-lite??. I'm trying to think of weaker leadership in our history than the performance last summer - King John maybe.Was there any real leadership, I think in the face of the pandemic they just fell apart and run around like lost sheep, that is why I think that we need a government body made up of all the right people, probably cross party that takes full control when this sort of emergency arises and can act fast without all the political bickering and discussion. Ok some would view them as a dictatorship but that is what is needed in an emergency like a pandemic, but will we learn anything from this, no.
