In the Czech Republic, discriminatory mandates exist against the unvaccinated. We are not allowed in restaurants, pubs etc. I suppose you could argue that this is to protect us thought frankly, I don’t need to be protected., I am an adult. However, I just discovered the ridiculousness of this medical discrimination…
On my trip last week, we stayed as business travelers. This is possible with a negative PCR test which I had. So for dinner, we decided to try an Indian restaurant. We were honest and explained I was on a business trip and obeying the rules with a negative test. The proprietor though told me he had not heard of this and so no, he could not serve me. I needed to show proof of vaccination or past infection to eat there. So, I asked what about carry out? Yes, no problem, said the proprietor, take a seat.
At this point, I told him No thanks and walked out.
You see, for him, it was Ok to have me sit at a table for 20-30 minutes waiting for the food but it wasn’t OK for me to spend a further 5 mins at that table eating the food.
This is the problem with people – idiocy and compliance with idiotic rules and regulations.
And by the way, I guarantee I was the safest person in the entire establishment when it came to COVID with a negative PCR test 18 hours prior.
Show me your papers…… that too was idiocy.
