Catch 22, or why you cant beat the system


Alex visits a pub restaurant:


Manager: Good evening sir, may I see your Vaccine Passport please?

Me: But I'm not vaccinated


Manager: ‘I'm sorry Sir, but you can’t come in here!’

Me: ‘Why not?’


Manager ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’

Me: ‘But I’m not sick.’


Manager ‘It doesn’t matter.’

Me: ‘Well, why does that guy who's coughing and sneezing get to go in?’


Manager ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’

Me: ‘But he’s sick!’


Manager ‘It’s alright Sir, everyone in here is vaccinated.’

Me: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’


Manager: ‘Yes.’

Me: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’


Manager: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’

Me:: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re all vaccinated.’


Manager: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

Me: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’


Manager: ‘But they can still get sick.’

Me: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’


Manager: ‘It vaccinates.’

Me: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread Covid?’


Manager: ‘Oh no. They can spread Covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’

Me: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.


Manager: ‘Ok.’

Me: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’


Manager: ‘That’s right.’

Me: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’


Manager: ‘Certainly.’

Me: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’


Manager: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

Me: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’


Manager: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’

Me: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’


Manager: ‘That’s fine.’

Me:: ‘Now I can go in?’


Manager: ‘Absolutely not?’

Me: ‘But I have a mask!’


Manager: ‘Doesn’t matter.’

Me: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’


Manager: ‘I know.’

Me: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’


Manager: ‘Take it easy Sir’

Me: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’


Manager: ‘No, it’s still good.’

Me: ‘But I can’t come in?’


Manager: ‘Correct.’

Me: ‘Why not?’


Manager: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

Me: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’


Manager: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’

Me:: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’


Manager: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’

Me: ‘But I’m not sick!!’


Manager:: ‘You can still get them sick.’

Me: ‘So then masks don’t work?’


Manager: ‘Masks work quite well.’

Me: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’


Manager: I'm just following the Science Sir. But if I knew the answer to that do you think I'd be standing here arguing with you?
