Good morning everyone welcome to Thursday’s rant, today I am talking about mandatory stuff. Here it is becoming mandatory to be vaccinated against Covid 19 in order to keep a job or go out and do stuff. Tim says it’s blackmail and yeah I get that but it is the way things are now.

I reckon no one likes being told what to do or feeling like they are being forced into doing something, I know I don’t.

However, throughout time many things have suddenly become mandatory. Like the following…………..

In 1973 it became mandatory or compulsory to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle.

It wasn’t until 1935 that it became mandatory to have to sit a text to get a driver’s license.

It wasn’t till 1969 that it became compulsory to register all births and deaths.

In 1880 it was made mandatory that children aged 6-14 to attend school.

I could go but you get my drift, sometimes new rules/laws come about and often we won’t like being told that now we have to do such and such but in time we will adjust.

Many of the things people would do before it was mandatory but it had to be made mandatory for the better of all.

Most people don’t think twice about getting their children vaccinated, don’t say that those vaccines have been around a long time because that wasn’t always the case.

Like it or not this is life now.



  1. Dearest Jo-Anne,
    There always have been people from certain groups, religious or not, that did not accept vaccines. This time it is way too political and even to the point of being tyrannical and that is WRONG!
    All the things you list here above are different, that is not about a person’s BODY and free choice.
    Tim got a valid point.
