When the global pandemic hit in March of 2020, everyone hoped that after two weeks or so of social distancing, cases would begin to drop and things would quickly get back to normal.

And though life is slowly getting back to what it once was, cases of COVID-19 continue to ebb and flow.

It almost feels like everyone must have caught COVID-19 at least once by now.

But even three years in and with multiple variants, there are still a very lucky, select few who have yet to test positive for COVID-19.

Redditor jwa8808 was curious to hear how those who have yet to see two red sticks on their rapid tests have managed to avoid catching COVID-19, leading them to ask:

"For people who have never caught covid even once, what's your secret?"


Having no social life comes with its advantages.

"I'm not very social even without a pandemic."- phorq

"Have no friends, lol."

You tell me!

"I really have no idea."

"I've been on building sites with people taking zero precautions, worked in London for a while, delivered into hospitals during lockdown, been surrounded by people who then go on to have covid a few days later."

"Not a clue how I haven't had it yet."- sammykoejoe

Best perk of a home office!

"Working at home and having no social life or sex."- I-P-Freely4ever

Pure, dumb luck!

'Neither me or my kids have been hit."

"The secret, I have no idea besides lure luck."- Hugh-Mahn

Dilligence...or common sense?

"Wear masks, go out when you need to, get all the covid shots you are entitled to, stay away from ill people."- kitchen_clinton

One can't help but sympathize with those too afraid to partake in outings and activities they enjoyed prior to the pandemic.

But hopefully the fact that they've avoided catching an illness which has taken the lives of over six million people worldwide is the comfort they need to feel good about their decisions.

I admit, and this might as well be heresy to lots of people, that I just don't like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Sorry, everyone.

I know ya'll love it, but there's very little about it that I feel accurately captures the feeling of magic and whimsy that I experienced while I read Road Dahl's stellar book.

Before you get on my case, I'll emphatically deny liking Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory... because it's also terrible.

You just can't please some people (namely me), right?

When you're younger, you might think you come from a great family. But as a kid, you miss out on a lot of nuance. You do not see all the drama the adults around you are involved in. And when you do eventually notice it, you start to realize that maybe few—if any—of your family members actually like each other. So why put up with all those tense family holiday dinners?

This isn't to say that all families are like this. Absolutely not. There are some very happy and wonderful families out there. But seeing families hurt each other is enough to teach you that maybe that age old tradition of getting together for Christmas dinner might not be in everyone's best interest.
