People Who Avoided Getting COVID Share How They Think They Did It

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

I can stay perfectly entertained at home!

"Don't go out."- To_enrich_my_life_17

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.

People Share The Things They Find Completely Overrated

For the life of me, I can't understand how anyone could still watch The Walking Dead. I just checked and the damn thing has had 11 seasons. 11 seasons!

Can you imagine?

People enjoy watching characters follow a set of train tracks for an entire season I guess. (For context, I made it to the beginning of the seventh season before I threw in the towel, and it was really testing my patience well before then.)

But there's so much more out there that's equally overrated. Television is the least of our problems.

There are things men do that easily annoy the opposite sex, simply by being a guy.

"That's such a dude move," or "typical male," can be examples of snide remarks made following disapproving gender-specific behavior.

It still amazes me that we live in a world where people are charged for drinking water. Water is a necessity! I have a lot of disdain for companies like Nestle, which siphons millions of gallons of water from entire communities only to sell it back to them.

What the hell is up with that? Does that not sound dystopian to anyone else? Okay, then. Water should be free – this should not be controversial.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor that_boy_ste asked the online community,

"You can make one thing/service free for the entire planet. What are you making free?"

People Share TV Shows From Their Childhood That No One Seems To Remember
Hanna-Barbera Cartoons

When I was a kid, I would occasionally watch this show called Big Bag. It went off the air more than 20 years ago and it seemed to only play at five or six in the morning. If I happened to wake up early, I'd catch it. It was targeted toward preschool viewers and was fun and silly, a partnership between Cartoon Network and what is now the Sesame Workshop.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who remembers it existed. But I'm not the only one with this kind of dilemma.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor LegitimateMangoHeir asked the online community,

"What's a show from your childhood that no one else seems to remember?"
