Okay, it's Sunday. For some odd reason I set my alarm for 0430, 15 minutes earlier than my normal time. I know most of you are still deep in REM sleep at that time, but I'm a morning person.
I do get to work today. Our blue competitor is closed, a combination of Covid - 19 and a Faux Holiday. This means those planing on going there for their Landscaping Religious Experience will becoming to our store. Like certain religious groups, they don't really care if it's orange or blue, as long as they get their fix. When they get to our store, they're going to be waiting in a line. No more than 100 at a time in the store. Let me tell you, that seems like a lot of people, but it isn't when your spread them out.
Yesterday I posted signs in my department regarding samples. If a customer wants a sample to take home, they need to see one of the specialists. The samples are still there... for now, but they will be going away... soon. This is because those 4 x 4 inch pieces of vinyl, and carpet, and laminate get picked and put back by countless fingers. They get breathed on, and fingered by people who don't really give a shit about what's going on in the world. We call them Republicans.
One thing I find sadly amusing is this notion people have picked up that Covid - 19 is going to peak at a specific time. You know? Like the doodle brain who claimed it was going to be gone by April 18. I hear people saying "it's going to peak next week." I always ask "where?" They don't seem to understand it progresses at different rates of speed through different communities. Social distancing will slow it down, but it is still going to be spreading.
Another dingleberry idea floating around is that Covid - 19 is going to go away once the temperatures warm up. Does the common cold go away when it gets warm? Have you ever had a summer cold? They always say summer colds are the worst. For those who don't know, the common cold is caused by a coronavirus. That's right. Coronaviruses are not new to the world. The fact that cases are showing up in places like Yemen, a hot, dry country, suggest Covid - 19 might be more like its country cousin the common cold, rather than SARS of MERS.
As time goes on, the voices are growing louder regarding the Idiot Jerk's administrations total failure in regard to this crisis. They were being warned back in November and... nothing. You see, the imbecile the Evangelicals put into the White House had a gut feeling this was nothing more than fake news trying to make him look bad. Now that imbecile is on TV daily giving his little briefings... Dumb shit, he has no clue the ratings are high because people are tuning in for Birx and Fauci... not him. That connection will never be made in his brain. What a sorry state this egomaniac has put this country in.
Finally, I planted about 80 bulbs in a bed out front. They're beginning to bloom. They are going to be very pretty. And just think, I haven't planted the Zinnias or the Dahlias yet.
