So my fiancee arrives home from work and says she's craving a sandwich and salad from Panera Bread. I love their sandwiches so we load up and cruise over and order. (they got rid of my favorite sandwich - chicken bacon ranch- but that's another rant) Anyway, we snag our drinks and sit down at one of the small tables. Or food comes and about halfway through our meal, the college kid behind me starts hacking up a lung. I notice, but don't pay much attention, thinking he may have just finished a doobie in the bathroom or something. Then his mother's phone rings. She goes through her little greeting of her friend and then lets out this little gem "oh yeah, we just got back from the doctor and "little jimmy" has the swine flu" " ya they ran some tests and said they were positive it was swine flue and that we should make him drink plenty of fluids so we went to the store and got water and gatorade to keep him hydrated". My eyes bulge and I grab my plate and abruptly stand up while my fiancee looks at me with a "what the fuck is wrong" look. I take my plate over to a new table, set it down, and then walk over and grab the napkins and stuff I left.. I'm planning on just ignoring it and vacating his general area when she says into the phone "ya so we came to panera bread because this might be his last meal before he dies" and laughs into the phone....

I lose it.

"Are you serious lady?" "Your doctor tells you that your son has swine flu and you bring him to one of the most popular and crowded resturants on campus?" She looks at me like someone just told her that tampons were made from dead baby seal skins.

"I hope this is the only child you have and that this is indeed his last meal so that your ignorance is removed from the gene pool" Again, blank ignorance blankets her face.

People around her start getting up and moving, my fiancee grabs our drinks and grabs my arm and ushers me towards the door.

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

Edited, rage = bad grammar.

My first thought was to just let her be, but you bet your ass I made a scene and I'm glad I did. At least the other folks sitting around her had some warning.

Didn't realize this was post 223

You should have called the cops and/or the local news, and then confronted them when the cops got there.

With any luck, the CDC would get involved as well.

Personally, I would just bitch at her then leave not too worried...because swine flu is a scam.

You know it takes like a week to get back results for swine flu, right? Most docs are treating all flu right now like swine flu. Certainly could be. The CDC isn't asking for hospitals to track it unless the pt is hospitalized. IIRC the seasonal flu test is only about 70% accurate.

If you did in fact say that, BRAVO to you Sir. What a cunt.



However, if that's what you wanted to say to her........well, me too. But your rant is only worth 3/10.

Dude seriously, it's the flu. Yeah, it sucks, I have the fucking flu now, been out sick for a week.

But, it's still just the flu. I don't know if what we have is H1N1, this is the sickest I have been in a dozen years.

Still, it is just the flu. New varieties go around every year. Some people get sick, some even die.

But it's not the BLACK PLAGUE. It's the flu.

Was he coughing on you? Did you touch his fork? Did you drink after him?

If not, you can un-knot your panties and de-sand you mangina. You will probably live.

A brother gots to eat...

Seriously, it is very hard to get the flu via aerosol (coughing and sneezing). You get it by touching something an infected person touched.

They rub their eye, then touch a door knob. You open the door, then rub your nose.

My 11yo son brought this home from school. We all proceeded to get it. Hard to avoid touching stuff in your own house.

Which is exactly why a contaminated person should not be in public if they can avoid it. In this case it could have been. Mom could have gotten the order to go. But by your own addmission the family members will probably be contagious too.

TN, that's all I needed to read...

yep, and as the kid is there hacking all over the area he is sitting at (according to OP), the next suckers who sit at his table
will be touching his germs.

I remember when teh AIDS freaked people out like that. I only ever knew one guy that got it (and died from it) but he was gay and proud of it. Nobody knew how you could catch it until later but nobody wanted to be near them at the time.

Don't buy the hype the MSM is selling on this thing.
