I encountered this thought process while trying to attend a Kitchen and Bath Show in ORLANDO last week. People walking in maskless with a vaccine card. But anyone else had to provide a negative test within 48 hours, or take an onsite rapid test. Needless to say, we turned around and left.

I have to admit, reading this thread has activated one of my pet peeves. I don't care if you get vaccinated; do what you want at this point. But since when do a bunch of Americans call them "jabs" like they just stumbled out of a grimy pub in Liverpool? Has something on the deep dark corners of the dark web activated your inner Scouse and Mancunian longings for the "old sod?" I've been noticing this trend and while I know it likely comes from all that propaganda thrown around, its widespread adoption is a bit puzzling. Especially with all the anti-European sentiment that typically accompanies it.

It came from social media outlets removing or marking posts with the word vax or vaccine. Jab flew under the radar from those who don't like free speech for a while.

Thanks, I was curious. As someone who actually HAS gotten jabs in the UK and who has some background in linguistics, I have to say that it's interesting to see how it's taken hold. It comes across kind of like someone walking down A1A drunk hollering "cor, blimey, me bloomers are on fire..." They're pants, anyway.
