It's not normal behavior among folks in my circle (especially so at work), and when folks in my presence do it, I call it out.

I'm done with poke number 2. In a couple weeks I'll be as safe as I've felt in a year. Go get your vaccine if you're at all medically capable...if you need help, let me know. ✔️

Just got my first Bill Gates 5G Tracking chip installed. Quick, painless, and my understanding is that after the second shot in a few weeks I'll get way better cell reception.
