Default I snapped today!

I snapped today and I feel so bad.

so their was this guy wearing plastic on his body because of his dears for coronavirus

him: this coronavirus is really bad isn't it?

(he then proceeds to talk about it nonstop, how their's no shops, no transport, no cafes, etc)

me: yeah it's bad. but I have bigger things to worry baout,

Possible trigger:


him: but my wife's a diabetic, I'm high risk

me: so why arn't you with her?. you shouldn't be here complaining about the virus, you should be at home isolating with your wife.

him: I find that offensive (no idea why, it's a home truth)

*awkward silence*

him: you know 90 people died today of coronavirus in the UK

me (before I could stop myself)

Possible trigger:


then I left him too it

feel so bad. of course I do, but the bottom line here is that I'm struggling too (with no coronavirus related stuff), I don't need his constant worry about the virus making me go over the edge

I would've just walked away. Then again, I've been known to say some unkind things when pressed.

raging vortex, please don't beat up on yourself. Who isn't extremely stressed these days? It's so easy to snap. Take some breaths and move on.

Well, this gentleman obviously should not be talking to strangers! One, he is not socially isolating as he should be. Two, you two had not been proerly introduced. Three, you are not his therapist! Did he expect free therapy from a stranger? Four, i think what you said was pretty darn funny, mostly because i would have said the same thing myself! His wife probably kicked him out of the house to get some peace for a while from his Eeyore act. It's times like these i am grateful for the single life that i have.

and if you don't shut up, it's going to be 91- This made me lol. You said what many of us only think. Of course, showing more patience and restraint is a good idea. But...that was funny.

Try not to dwell on this, raging vortex. I totally understand both sides in this story. The good lesson is that you've thought about the situation and have clearly realized what motivated it. Hopefully the man will think about it, too. Sounds like a good learning experience, to me. Thank you for sharing the story. It gives us all something to think about during this very trying time.

Totally understandable to me. Am severely depressed/mixed and feeling suicidal and on edge myself. I would have probably said the same, if not worse. It's maddening how everyone keeps talking about corona all the time because it just keeps feeding my anxiety. Imho people like this need to learn to take a hint and know when to shut up.
