Yesterday was an odd day at work... the 'odd' people are coming out. I had an interesting conversation with a nicely dressed woman who claimed to have just come from our Blue Competitor. One of their ladders had been parked in front of a selection of blinds she had been looking at, and when she asked an associate if she could move it he responded by saying "it's one of our toys, we'll move it." Well, "it's one of our toys" incensed her to no end. She told me she thought him very rude, and all I could do was think of how bat-shit crazy this lady sounded. What she really needed to do was just take a deep breath and move on.

I didn't hear him say really pertinent, no comments about 'flattening the curve,' the reason people are being quarantined. As of Friday, travel to and from Europe will be restricted because this is a 'foreign threat.' Someone should have told him the virus is already here. He wants Congress to waive Personal Income Tax so that even if you're sick, you'll go out to the stores shopping. (That was a pitch of his re-election in case you didn't know). Take a deep breath, now.
Because denied the Coronavirus right from the beginning, because he eliminated positions at the CDC, because his administration funneled funding for the CDC to other areas, because the initial test kits were flawed and gave incorrect results, because even now only those who fall within a narrow criteria are getting tested, we have no idea how many people are infected in this country. But he is going to make sure small businesses can get low interest loans to help them through this crisis. Take a deep breath, now.
He did say something about companies giving associates with the Virus 2 full weeks of sick time, of course to qualify you will need to provide test results, and... as we know, at this point testing is still fairly limited to the criteria the Idiot Jerk's administration has in place. Take a deep breath.
Be prepared, he will try and use this to his advantage because he is a duplicitous sack of shit.
