Sunday, because of Social Distancing, is going to actually be a day of rest for some, but not as many as you think. Take me, for example, I get to go in and work. Not being the religious type, working on Sunday doesn't bother me. Normally the store is slow until around noon, then we usually get the after church crowd, of course Covid - 19 has eliminated attendance for most. We will have to see how today shakes out.
We now have Plexiglas spit guards at all registers, the Service Desk, and the paint desk. Employees feel much safer. They are a large, visible reminder we're dealing with a serious issue. Conservatives don't like them, but the Conservatives don't wear face masks either. I had a very large customer in the Flooring department yesterday who told me the numbers were wrong, they weren't nearly as high as the media was saying. He referenced Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida, not wearing a mask when he gave his coronavirus update. I desperately wanted to say "Hey, Fat Boy, you're in a very high risk category. You need to take this seriously," but I didn't. I chose decorum over trying to educate this oaf.
In fact, if you look at a those protesters complaining, a lot of them seem to be on the jowly side. And really, if you boil down their complaints there is just one thing that stands out. These are selfish people who hate control. They want to do what they want. Personally, I think we should let the Idiot Jerk have his way, let his base gather together, and infect together, and when they start dying together they're going to say "Oh, Shit." In fact, those might be their 2 last words as they become less vote he can tally in the fall.
Speaking of protesters, we had some at the store yesterday. Not in the store, per se, but in the parking lot across the street. As I left work, I saw 7 pickup trucks parked diagonally. The last one was flying a large blue flat with the Idiot Jerk's name on it. No one was gathering around them. Everybody was driving past. While the media may be talking about them, keep in mind they are a very, very small group of people making a lot of noise. In 2 weeks, when the states begin relaxing their restrictions, what are they going to protest? The body count is not going to stop. Social distancing is going to stay in place. And they will, slowly get sick. This is the price of being one of the Idiot Jerk's protesters. This is how evolution works.
It's cold right now. My outdoor thermometer show a temp of 31 (F) and that's not going to be good for my tulips. When I got home from work yesterday one of them had either snapped off because of the wind... or, a bunny had chewed away the stem. Remember, I live in bunny hell. Any way, I brought it inside and stuck it in some water. and it opened up. Here's one of my tulips.
