RagTag Daily Prompt: Foreboding

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt , today is  Foreboding.

I have no picture for you regarding this topic.  Only foreboding.

Today at work, three weeks since I was forced to return to an in-person office even though all my work is virtual, and four days since everyone came back to face to face learning at my institution (because, you know, EVERYONE needs to be back…), there was an all staff meeting of our large work-group.  Some of us chose to come in through Teams (our local “Zoom”), but in the in-person room we could see people without masks.  And when I commented at one point on the lack of masks, I was told (by an upper administrator) that it was ok because it is not a “public” space.

I wish I had been brave enough to type into the chat “I don’t get the distinction, and I doubt COVID will either.” But I didn’t.

Now, all I have is a stronger sense of foreboding around how much longer before it all falls apart again.

  1. Seriously. Wow.

    • Right? I was made to feel like I was so paranoid, like “oh, but it’s ok if it’s not a public space”. I give the institution 2 more weeks before we are in actual trouble.

      • With your work being virtual, I cannot understand why they don’t tell you to go home. I’ll bet you said what so many others were thinking, though.

  2. That is scary. Doesn’t make much sense if it’s not a public space or not, when people gather without masks these day, it’s borrowing trouble.
