Here’s a too-common story about how some citizens are responding to the pandemic by shirking their responsibilities.
Kelly Sills paid a small fortune for an enchanting trip to “the most magical place on Earth.”
Instead, the Baton Rouge resident — like several other Disney World guests who have defied coronavirus restrictions — visited the Orange County jail.
Amid heightened precautions for the virus at the major Florida tourist attraction, Sills, 47, skipped the temperature screening required of guests, authorities said. He was confronted by security about it at a Disney Springs restaurant, the Boathouse, when he yelled and refused to leave, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrest report from Feb. 13. When deputies insisted he would be charged with trespassing, he pointed to how much he spent on his vacation, according to body-camera footage released this week.
My first reaction: people spend $15,000 on a vacation? What? How?
My second reaction: you booked a trip to DisneyWorld during a pandemic? That’s nuts.
My third reaction: and then you’re so petty and obnoxious that you skip past basic health checks? That’s how plagues spread, ya bozo.
My fourth reaction: my two-year old granddaughter is more mature and responsible than Mr Sills.
