Yesterday I got to be counter at the Exit for about 2 hours. This is really not a bad job. You talk to people as they leave the store. Most of them are really nice. Some say "stay safe." Now and then you get some cranky white guy, either burly with a beard or his mouth pissily pinched shut, leaving without a word. And now and then you have to deal with women. They try and use words they believe are rapier sharp but are more like a bright pink highlighters used by petty child to scribble bright stupid words. I had one yesterday. Middled-aged, she was wearing a black dress, and tried to enter through the Exit. When I explained it was 'Exit Only' she frowned. "When is this going to end?" Our standard response is, "as long as there's an infectious virus out there," and she cut me off. She said I was ridiculous. I told her the last time I had checked there were 112 positive in the zip code for Camp Hill, which is very small. That pissed her off. "I look at the CDC website everyday," she lied "and only 80,000 people have died from Covid." She's off by what? 24,000? My stunned reaction at her ignorance must have been quite obvious, because she leaned close and bitterly said "oh, you're one of THOSE people," and went down to the Front Entrance. That's right... she said "only." My response, before she walked away was "Yes, I am."
Yesterday Elon Musk launched Americans into space for the first time in 9 years. The Idiot Jerk gave a little speech everyone except MAGA heads ignored. The only way he'd have gotten any notices was if he'd said something inflammatory. Interesting how he doesn't get any attention by being compassionate or generous, rather people only notice him when he either Tweets or says something stupid. He likes to be noticed, so you can bet the stupidity factor is going to increase.
The only BoBo thing about yesterday's launch was some fool with a radio actually said "God's speed," which was a reference to John Glen, for so many of you too young to remember. Anyway, as one of "THOSE people," I'm glad we're back in space.
