I think this is related:

Since ancient times, pandemics have spurred sharp turns in political beliefs, spawning extremist movements, waves of mistrust and wholesale rejection of authorities.

(Emphasis added: like, for example, mask mandates.)

And with pro-level mask malpractice, also.

And I thought I got pissed when I say a couple of something and I mean two, and people don’t follow.

People thinking 50 donuts is 12 is a perfect example of why teachers are not paid enough in the US, as well as why its a good idea to go into diabetic nursing as a career.

I hate these stories. Stupidity, aside, what happened next?

Maybe it’s just me, but I get the feeling that statistical discussions about epidemiology aren’t going to be persuasive with this person.

Also, I wonder what she thinks a “baker’s dozen” is. Fifty-leventy?

And if twelve turned out to be fifty
I’d feel nifty :musical_note:

It was always soul crushing to me to have a patient come back in for a BKA after I spent countless hours teaching them about managing diabetes during their last hospitalization.

(This is in cases where the patient was well educated, comparatively affluent, and had a good support system)

The stupidity is the point! If you start looking for context, it might detract from your sense of moral and intellectual superiority.

No, not ALL people; just enough to fuck things up.

Not just a sense. It’s real superiority.

What context would you need to see in order to say, “Oh, okay then”?

I’m not sure she actually believes what she is saying.

This could be her trying to scam a few extra donuts by being angry and insistent. This is a thing people do, and it sometimes works because the boss won’t miss a couple of donuts, and they are not paid enough to deal with this kind of BS.

I wonder if she has the same expectation when she buys eggs.

Dunkin Donuts is an AUTHORITY on what a dozen is.

In our house “a couple” is always an odd number, crazy I know, but that’s how we roll.
