13 People Who Are Taking COVID-19 Much More Seriously Than Their Parents
We are not living during normal times. There is a global pandemic going on, yet not everyone is taking it seriously. In some cases, the children are actually the ones who are taking COVID-19 more seriously than their parents.
Many teens, young adults, and children of Boomers have been venting on social media about how they are the ones telling their parents to wear face masks and not to go out with friends. Meanwhile, these responsible young people are staying home, avoiding social situations and trying to plead with their parents to do the same.
Scroll down for 13 examples of young people being more responsible than their parents when it comes to COVID-19.
Smiling Through the Mask
Daddy wants to go grocery shopping everyday. To smile at people. Even thought he’s wearing a mask. Meanwhile, I’m limiting my grocery trips to once every 2 weeks or less.

“Lawd Help Me”
This is my mom. Out every single day, wearing a mask, but living in a small-ish town, she knows everyone well and isn’t as worried. At the store every day, taking side trips to other towns…I’m like, lawd help me.

My mom and I hop into the car after shopping. I am vigorously applying sanitizer and when I look over to offer her some, she’s eating a goddamn bag of chips. I don’t know how she’s lived this long 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️

Me: “sorry, I can’t come to the event. I want to make sure I don’t get Covid and spread it to my boomer parents.”My boomer parents: “anyone know of some good super spreader events we can attend maskless??”

Acting Like Children

I told my 80 year old mother if she left the house again for stupid reasons, I’d take away her car keys. Playing cards is NOT a good reason, Mom!
