I know that I can't be the only one who gets super frustrated and irritated by this but why do people think it's OK to not let you know when they're sick before you bring your kids over it's my daughter went to my mother-in-law's house and I didn't step in the house just because I was in the car waiting for my partner to go bring her in so that way we can run some errands so I wasn't aware that she was sick at all but my daughter came back the next day and she was just super congested and start coughing and had a fever and just not feeling good and so I went back to my mother-in-law's house just to drop some stuff off and this woman was just completely sick like super sick and had it like the worst colds had the worst cough and everything congestion and like why didn't you like a literally want to tell her like why didn't you let us know Like now we're all like all three of us in this household we're just super sick and it's just super and frustrating and irritating like why do you put us through this like we were just sick maybe four weeks ago and our re-sick again because you didn't let us know this time around like I don't understand why people like this
So I've actually had to set firm boundaries with my family in the sick category because they would do this. They would come over, not tell me they were sick, and then a few days later all of a sudden me or the kids are sick. So that's it, firm boundaries.
Yeah, I hate this so much when people don't like inform you that their kid's sick. Like, can you just like let us know that ahead of time? Because if I can like not expose them to it, I'm going for it. Like, I don't want to expose them. I'll just take them with me. Like, I'll figure it out.
Oh my gosh, yes, and I hear people say like, well, they're building their metabolism. Like, okay, yeah, they're building their metabolism, but are you gonna come and, you know, take care of my kid while they're sick so I don't have to take time off work or what?
I work in a place where sometimes people get sick, so I don't know sometimes. But yeah, I make sure to stay away from people that get sick, so that way I don't get sick. But yeah, I feel you about boundaries, people should just tell you right away.
That is just so wrong and I am so sorry. That is one of my- the things that irks me the most is it's just so inconsiderate. Especially when you have little ones because it's so hard to, you know, take care of everybody when you're sick as well.
My family knows, like my extended family, I am very, I have very firm boundaries about please before we see you let us know if you have any symptoms of any sort, especially since like the pandemic, you know, COVID started a few years ago, like I am just very adamant about that.
