New outbreak of Wuhan Virus in Beijing and now the BS peddlers are claiming it's a result of salmon imported from Europe and North America. :roll:

“The Karens Are Giving Us a Hard Time Now”: A waiter at a reopened restaurant explains how dining works in a pandemic.
In the beginning [when we reopened for dine-in], people just trickled in and they weren’t quite sure. We have quite a large elderly crowd and we’re starting to get some of those people back. For the most part, they just wear a mask. Our reservations have been crazy busy. Everybody wants to call ahead and make sure that they’re going to be able to get a table, because we have limited seating. The thing that gets me is that everybody was so grateful when we were doing takeout and we were essential employees working in a pandemic. Those same people, the Karens, are the ones giving us a hard time now that we’re open for dining again.

There’s two classifications of customers. There’s the crazy people who come in wearing hazmat suits with the alcohol spray to spray everything down. They’re really like out-there—they probably shouldn’t be out in public. And then you have the people who are understanding and have their little masks and stuff, but they’re not crazy.

There was this one Karen who went out to eat with her two friends and she immediately wanted the manager. But she made a point to say, “Not until after we’re done eating.” It was just crazy to me cause she was like, “You guys reuse this [silverware]. This is so unsanitary. I need to speak to the manager.” She was mad about the chopsticks, which are made of hard plastic. She wanted the plastic forks and spoons and knives, and she made a whole big thing about it, which, again, isn’t a big deal. But she’s eating off the plates, drinking out of the glasses, sitting in the booth where multiple people have sat all night. To me, the logic is kind of ridiculous. You can always tell when someone comes in thinking, “I am going to get something free from you.”

[Customers like this] have definitely evolved because of the pandemic. The thing that’s changed on our end for the pandemic is that normally it’s “The guest is always right.” Whatever they want, we’re going to jump through hoops. But now, I’m allowed to tell them “no.” “No you can’t sit at that booth because we’re practicing social distancing.” You know how the Karens are: “I want it my way and I’m entitled.” I’m like, “I’m sorry, but you know, our restaurant will get by.” We only seat tables of up to six people. If it’s more than six, they’re going to have to social distance (at different tables) or sit on the patio where it’s really hot. People have been throwing a huge fit about that. They want to push two tables together. You can’t because you’re putting people around you at risk. And I don’t think these people are used to hearing “no” from us.

Two things, Condi.

Firstly, why do you insist on calling it the 'Wuhan virus' when the accepted name is Covid 19?
It has been mentioned many times that calling it the Wuhan virus puts blame on a single nation (and it may well have originated there) and encourages arse holes to blame a whole nation and anyone looking like them.
You're keeping that racism alive by using that term.

This seems to have become your latest favourite slur.
Again, it has negative connotations and seems like it's most popular with misogynistic twats.
Are you allying yourself with them as well?

You like to use prejudiced slurs, don't you.
Why is that?

LIOFO cowardly cunt....

1) Wuhan Virus is what it was referred to originally, until the CCP started started changing the narrative. I couldn't care less if some Orange Karen decides to abuse it for his own twisted reasons. If Covid 19 had occurred in Xianjing or further west, the CCP wouldn't blink an eye at calling it the Uighur Virus or Tarim Virus. The narrative now is that it's caused by foreigners, especially Africans. :shock:

https://qz.com/1820422/coronavirus-why- ... ars-cov-2/

The WHO writes on its website that it steers clear of SARS-CoV-2 because “using the name SARS can have unintended consequences in terms of creating unnecessary fear for some populations, especially in Asia which was worst affected by the SARS outbreak in 2003.” At a press briefing on Feb. 13 (pdf), WHO executive director Michael Ryan noted that SARS-CoV-2 is a technical term for virologists in labs, while Covid-19 is a term for the average person. “We’re trying to relate the virus to the world, the experience that people have with the virus… so I don’t think there’s any inconsistency,” he said.


2) It's exactly what a Karen would say or should I say Mac? :roll:

The ‘Karen’ memes and jokes aren’t sexist or racist. Let a Karen explain.
