    Peeps really worried tonight. Today I had a French driver at work. He couldn't speak any English and was writing a message on his phone. I went to take it of him and he started coughing all over my face. Spit and breath all over me. To say worried is putting it mildly. I am sitting here now wearing a mask as I don't want to pass anything on to the family.
    Regards
    Joe.

    A totally unpleasant incident, but I think the chances of you not catching Covid are statistically well in your favour. Your mask should be changed regularly before it gets blinded with moisture and perhaps self isolation, if that is physically possible.

    All the best to you and yours

    I wonder if the message was that he was ill! Hope it turns out a healthier result for you Joe

    That's cheered me up no end. Not worried about my self but thinking of my Tracy. And my boy is immunosuppressed so Covid would be very bad for him and I don't think he would survive it. Bloody Drivers. Ignorant pig.
    Regards
    Joe

    Thanks. I pray to my Father in heaven and I don't beg for much but tonight I would give my arms to know it was just a cough.
    Regards
    Joe.

    Horrible for you Joe. Stay safe mate, for you and your family’s sake. :heart:
    I’d be isolating myself from the family if I were you until you’re sure you’ve not caught anything.
    Will be thinking of you fella. :)

    Yes walking around with a box of wipes here and staying to one room as much as I can. Just mailed my other boys and asked them not to visit till I get past this bit. Thanks for the thoughts.
    Regards
    Joe.

    Can't help this one mate. In the past I have lost two of my precious Boys to different illnesses and I feel it would destroy me totally if I harmed my boy now who is already finding life a struggle. But all the peeps here are good people. And thanks for that.
    Regards
    Joe

    What a disgusting thing to happen Joe. I really hope he hasn’t passed on anything to you. I’ll have my fingers crossed for you.

    My compassion goes out to you Joe. I have been living with out my oldest now for 11 years. I know what that does to parents. Sometimes it is difficult to keep perspective. Ones emotions are forever changed from the experience. I think the suggestion of contacting the man's employeer is a good one. It might put your mind at rest. It also might shed some light on the medical issues involved. These are stressful times. I hope the best. I think the odds are in your favor. Be safe. Keep a level head. Go talk to the employeer and I think it will make YOU feel better. ...J.D.
