Isolation is giving us an opportunity for more distractions than usual from our normal lives and as internet providers struggle to meet demand we waste more hours chatting away online.
Apps are a great tool for making us feel safer and more secure in what are truly exceptional circumstances as they allow us to keep in touch with our friends, family and loved ones, wherever we may be and whatever we are facing. They allow us to face those things together even though we may be hundreds of miles apart.
It has come to my attention that there are those who are intent on ignoring government guidelines and continuing to use these apps to arrange hook-ups. If you are one of those people, please stop. Your actions are reckless and irresponsible. If you are feeling like you might cave to the pressure or can’t abide to miss out on the hook-up of the lockdown then please, please reconsider.
If the whole idea of ignoring the advice of government and health experts and pleas from frontline key-workers doesn’t raise a huge red flag to you, then perhaps consider that this potential hook-up really does not have your best interests or safety at heart.
Please be safe, please be sensible, please be patient.
GRUNDER IS WATCHING.
