Good friend of mine invited me over to dinner. I’ve been to his house hundreds of times before. He just messaged me and asked if I would take a Covid test when I got there because his father in law is “still spooked over Covid “ I’ve made it this entire time without getting sick or needing a test. Why does this kinda shit always happen to me lol

I would simply not respond at all, and go do something else.

Probably just say that you have stuff to do at home.  Sucks though.

Yup, it would be ruined for me, would not go.

We have a wedding like that next month.
The invite was too weird. Not just that but this has been one of those "On again, off again" types of weddings that really bring out the craziness of the bride.

Only half are showing up. I'd say because of the retarded Covid requirement and people are just tired of the fucking drama.

Bummer.  Your good friend is probably feeling pressure from his wife about this.  Is a rapid test available to you?  I would do that if you really want to go.  Masks?  No way.

You’re going to have an awesome Thanksgiving this year and an even better Christmas!

Cut those people out of your life. You’ll be much happier.

You don't do anyone any favors by going along with their delusions.  

The only way for him to get over being spooked is by living, outside of a hermetic bubble that is all an illusion anyway.

My MOTHER did the same.  

When she started to ask about needing to make sure everyone has been vaccinated....I asked if I could see her card.  Asked if she understood vaccination dates and how they impact the effectiveness of the vaccine.  She had no clue

I have no desire to chill with woke idiots.

She can enjoy holidays by herself

My accountant stated that her whole family got a round of nasal swab tests in a doctors office before boarding a plane. The doctors office billed her health insurance about $700 per family member tested.

They’re all vaxxed, I’m not. Friends father in law is Covid compromised or whatever it’s called due to kidney transplant but still . He literally sprung this on me like half an hour before I was heading to his house

Meh, caving into these people's whims are how we ended up where we are now.

Simply sad.  Part of me would want to respond wit, "no thanks, people who fear COVID who don't have significant cormobidities are mentally unstable and it would be safer for me to avoid them altogether...once your Marxist old-man leaves, I can come over for pumpkin pie"😁

The civil part of me would be to politely decline...

Don't worry fam, I just checked to see if I still had photos from my test, and I do.

That’s even more of an asshole thing to do.

I’m high risk because of an immune disease. I’ve had COVID twice. No, it’s not the same thing as a kidney transplant. But if the guys FIL is really that worried, maybe he should stay home and not go anywhere.

Yep. I would also remind them that because they took the jab, they'll be fine. If they're still "spooked" wear a mask. Actually, fuck off.... I don't bend a knee to liberals.

Agreed!

Go a step further and claim you are in their country illegally and according to their Presidente, Joe Biden, you are exempt from any vaccine mandates and they are racist for asking.

This shit will never end until people stop catering to it.  My reply would be, "Since your dad is so spooked, I believe it would be best if I just didn't come."  Then enjoy Thanksgiving however else you'd like without whatever drama they have going on over there.
