You need to lose your shit at them!! Bloody hell, I wouldnt want to be friends with people who not only disrespectful but also have so little regard for you and your families health and wellbeing. Tell them to take a hike!
What state are you in? In NSW you can be fined $11,000 for leaving your house for non essential trips. I think other states have something similar. Remind them of that. Also lock your door. Do not let them in no matter how much they carry on. I think you need to re-evaluate your friendship as well. True friends will respect your wishes. Smart people will stay home!
It sounds like these people are being disrespectful and rude. You have tried telling them the truth and it hasn’t worked so it might be time to try a small white lie. Text them and tell them that they won’t be able to visit at the moment because your neighbors have been dobbing on people. Tell them that you don’t want to cause issues with your neighbors and that they are not to come over. Send them a link to one of the many news articles stating that people cannot have visitors over or they will be fined. If this doesn’t work you need to lock your door and when they next come over tell them that you aren’t feeling well and that they can’t come in.
I think it is illegal to congregate at home. This may be crazy, i cant believe im saying it, but maybe you need to call the police on them. They are a public health risk, not just a risk to you and your family. Good luck, and i dont blame you for feeling this way. X
Lose your shit, love. They deserve it, and the bonus? They'll not come around anymore. The fact that they do this at dinner time suggests it's intentional, so you feed them. They're using you and they're sh*t people. A lot of people, during these times, will discover who their friends really are and who they need to cull.
Lock the door and tell them to go home while you spray a can of glen20 at them. If they can’t be considerate enough to respect your wishes then it wouldn’t be much of a loss if they cut the friendship.
I would report you if you were my neighbours, this sounds like a nightmare. Get your hubby to step in and tell them they cannot come in, you stay in the background and they will get the point
True friends would respect your wishes even if they don’t agree with what you have to say.
I would be pissed if people showed up at dinner time every time and on top of that brought their dogs! They sound more like users than friends!!
Tell them if you get a fine they will be responsible for it because you’ve asked them to leave and they wouldn’t.
Pretend you’re not home
Lock the door and tell them to get lost through the window
Call the cops and have them fined for refusing to leave
Have a neighbour tell them they’re calling the cops when they pull up
Tell them you have the virus and are in quarantine
Tell them the friendship is over because they are so inconsiderate
That’s all I’ve got right now but you have to do something they’re jerks
The Government has just announced that they have solved your problem. Just got an email from my M.P. about Stage Three restrictions in Victoria. I'm sure it's the same in other states. Copy it off the internet and stick it on the front door. Then don't open the door. Quote from MP email: 'The Premier (Vic) has now announced restricting indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than two people, except for members of your immediate household and for work or education. Playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor gyms will also close. These Stage Three restrictions came into effect from 11:59pm 30 March 2020 and will be reviewed after four weeks. If people breach these directions they face on-the-spot fines of $1,652 for individuals and $9,913 for businesses. Larger fines can also be issued through the courts.
The message from the Premier is clear – there are only four reasons to leave your home: food and supplies, medical care, exercise, work or education.
Under Household heading.
Lock your door. Put a sign up saying you’re all at the covid clinic showing symptoms.
I suggest phoning your local police station and discussing this with them. Google the police + suburbs and you'll get their landline. They may refer you to someone else or set up a time to appear at your house. You might have to call to say those friend/relatives have arrived. The police won't disclose who dobbed because that's been covered by law for years. I've seen police, rangers and council evade that nicely.
