After a week of seeing news video footage and newspaper photos of people with masks on so they don’t catch the “swine flu”, I feel I have to let out a little secret known to those who work in or alongside the medical field.
That mask isn’t going to keep the flu out. It’s meant to keep a sick person from spreading things when they cough or sneeze. If you’re not sick, you can still catch the flu while wearing one of these.
Let the unnecessary pandemonium resume.
I wasn’t expecting to have another rant up so soon after the first, but something happened actually the same day as I posted the prior one, and I decided to write about it. I call these rants because they aren’t meant to be commentary on something, or well-thought out thoughts and ideas. They’re just rants, and the word “rant” alone in the title of the post can let anyone who doesn’t want to read a rant know to skip it.
