Signs of our times 6

Social distancing?? Nah, we're bullet-proof, no-one's gonna tell me what I can't do!!
The longer that twazzocks like this continue to flout the simplest of rules,the longer this situation will continue. Some of us actually want to go back to work.
In other news, great shot and processing

@graemestevens If I thought it'd've done any good I might (!) have gone over and ticked 'em off. But the least thing that would've happened would be told to join the far queue, and possibly far worse. Pity the coppers weren't around, $1100 fines on-the-spot.

Crazy, literally. What is hard to understand about the need to distance? We saw about 5 20-somethings playing basketball on a temporary court outside our window. All touching the same ball, breathing on one another. Police eventually broke the group up and sent them on their way. I like the storytelling, no matter how grim, your image conveys.

A sad social comment Marnie- your photo says so much - even the fag in the mouth is a part of the story.

@taffy Thanks Taffy. I'm not leaving our place much at the moment, all oldies are being told to stay home if at all possible. I only had a biggish lens on the X-T2 that day, have now fitted a 23mm which is much less conspicuous so will take the camera with me next time I'm out. Can't believe your comment re those basketballers, un-blooming-believable. Some young people seem to think it's all a beat-up.

@robz Oh gosh yes, tells us a lot doesn't it?
April 6th, 2020  
Great street shot and I like the B&W. Some people are either dumb, or deaf, or downright criminal.
April 6th, 2020  
Some young just don’t seem to understand the importance of the whole exercise, they make us stay in longer and longer and ruin our economy. But afterwards, they will be the first screaming for help, no job, no money, the government owes us........

A great black and white shot of a rather scary situation.
April 6th, 2020  
@ethelperry How 'bout the first and third option combined with a selective version of the second?
April 6th, 2020  
@angelikavr Absolutely right on all counts. But as you said not all young people, thank goodness. These three represent ignorance personified.
April 6th, 2020  
This excellent street shot will be part of the story when it eventually comes to an end... Shocking, criminal and downright dumb!
April 6th, 2020  
Aiiii😣
April 6th, 2020  
Irresponsible :)

@gilbertwood Penis craniums.
April 6th, 2020  
@momamo Yup!!!
April 6th, 2020  
@Weezilou Definitely all of the above!!
April 6th, 2020  
Ooops, probably should be crania if I remember any of my Latin.
April 6th, 2020  
Oh dear -you have some people like this too!
April 6th, 2020  
Oh how disgusting Marnie!! Such idiots or morons!! The trouble is these thickos wouldn't even be able to read the news papers or are extremely unlikely to watch the news. They are in their ignorant bubble. Or they just think the rules don't apply to them! Not sure which is worse!! Great story telling image.
April 6th, 2020  
At first I thought God's way of sifting out the stupid and then I thought of just how many others they could infect if they got the virus.
There are so many selfish and thoughtless people in the world unfortunately.
April 6th, 2020  
@golftragic Hahahaha yes, it should be crania...
April 6th, 2020  
I am with @graemestevens - some of us actually do want to go back to work and get on with life again. What's so hard to do about maintaining a 2m distance? You can still have a conversation without shouting and hold your own drink can up if you want!! Crazy

We had a 35 year old idiot break out of quarantine in a Perth hotel. He wedged the fire escape door open so that he could sneak out and see his girlfriend. My thought was s##t for brains!!
April 6th, 2020  
Makes me furious

Assholes

@maggiemae Oh yes, and this is a very middle-class polite kinda suburb.

@pamknowler Where's a copper when you want one?? Answer: out booking some poor innocent citizen trying to do the right thing. Some poor bloody mother and 17 yo daughter got pulled over and fined by some over-zealous officious officer yesterday. Mum had very sensibly decided that with no school and almost empty roads it was a perfect time to teach the kid to drive (18's the driving age in this state). Nope, not according to Plod, you're only allowed out for work/education, essentials, medical and exercise, so here's an $1150 fine!! Huge uproar about this, and so will likely be reversed. What a d---head copper! You can teach your learner to drive on the way to school/uni/doctor/supermarket, but not on an almost empty road. WTF??? Even had Plod been perfectly 'bang to rights', surely a stern word would've sufficed???

@jgpittenger Well said Jane, well said.
April 7th, 2020  
@fbailey You, me and lots of other people I know.
April 7th, 2020  
@merrelyn Bloody hell, what a f---wit.
April 7th, 2020  
@casablanca Couldn't agree more, it's not really toooo hard.
April 7th, 2020  
@domenicododaro Thanks Domenico, my long-dead Latin teacher would be most impressed. At the girls' (Methodist) secondary school I attended in the mid-1950s we all had to do Latin for the first year and two unless you studied German in the second year. The Latin teacher and I hated each the sight of each other and I did dismally at Latin. I was hopeless at grammar, but have a knack of remembering large slabs of vocabulary from any language I've attempted to study.

@onewing Being a non-believer I prefer to rely on karma!!! But you're spot on re infecting others. Mind you, people like this have probably never had an unselfish thought in their miserable lives.
April 7th, 2020  
@momamo @gilbertwood The 'me' generation?? See my reply to @pamknowler
April 7th, 2020  
It's a great street capture. Sadly it's illustrative of a lot of the present day youth. Guess they think it will never happen to them, Maybe they think that life is like a video game or a movie. No doubt if they do fall foul to the virus they will blame someone else. Stay safe tucked up at home.
I'm also with Graeme re wanting to get back to work.
April 7th, 2020  
Your series adds up to tell such a story of our times.
April 8th, 2020  
@salza I can't help feeling you may well be right about the video game/movie mentality. I well remember as a kid playing games where you fell down 'dead', then got up and went on. But my friends and I were in single-figure ages!
April 8th, 2020  
@jyokota Thank you Junko, I very much value a comment like that from you.
April 8th, 2020  
@salza I forgot to say you're right too about blaming someone else and expecting others to deal with the consequences they refuse to take responsibility for.

There is no isolation in Sweden and the condition is similar. This is a virus. He is already and will be. How many years can we function like this. I submit to these restrictions, although I do not approve of them.
