We were very busy yesterday. You know, this is what happens when you're declared 'essential' and everybody else shuts down. Stupid people believe that if there's only one place open in town, in spite of State of Emergency, they need to go there. It's Saturday, they think, my day off, I need to go somewhere. Never underestimate the stupidity of people. A rather young gentleman asked me "hey, why is the store so busy today?" I responded, "because we're considered essential, we're one of the few places allowed to be open." His reply: "Really?" I kid you not. We had a customer complain to the Service Desk that we were more interested in talking about being sick than waiting on customers. Yep, that happened.
This area is populated by stupid Republicans who cannot believe their Idiot Jerk would lie to them. They say things like "the media is blowing things way out of proportion." They will only understand the reality when it effects them personally, and until that happens they will smugly pass judgment.
I did change my schedule, I'm only working half days. As Conservative minds begin to crack and shatter at the truth, they will begin to stay home to avoid being contaminated. A week from now they will be seriously concerned as the death toll in the state continues to rise. Because of their Republican mindset, we are going to be just like Italy. A lot of the older conservatives will die.
To give you one example of just how damn stupid these Republicans are, both the House and the Senate attempted to push through legislation overturning the Sate of Emergency declared by Governor Wolf. They said it was 'unconstitutional.' They have absolutely no idea they just shit away their future in politics.
In case you didn't know, this is how Evolution works. The smart ones sit patiently at home waiting for the dumb ones to out, get themselves infect, and the die. We are seeing Survival of the Fittest... and smartest.
Finally, I was going to pop in a pic of some of my daffodils but then last night, as I was going through another slow edit of the book, I looked up and saw Biggie sitting on the sofa looking at me. I call this "Biggie Waits."
biggie looks all dressed up with no place to go. I can look at my daffs outside; I'd rather look at handsome biggie!ReplyDelete
He looks squashed together when he sits like that. He's actually really long.Delete
While at work one day last week, I was headed out to pick up lunch--all the local restaurants had gone takeout only--and a co-worker asked why I didn't just take my time and eat in the restaurant.ReplyDelete
I told her about those places being closed except for takeout and she actually said, "Why?"
I told her to lick a doorknob and go home.
Well... did she?Delete
Dave, I don't understand, don't you work at a place that sells flooring? Am I missing something here, essential? I feel sorry for the nice half of Americans. I'm almost tempted to wish they hold a bunch of dump rallies and evangelical gatherings just to thin the "dumb herd" before elections. However that would be an offensive way of thinking.ReplyDelete
Not offensive Steven.Delete
I don't really know what I believe in as far as higher powers, but I do think the way people act, take care of this planet, plants, and animals, and the environment, is shocking, disheartening, and pure greed. I truly believe Mother Nature has a way for pay backs and will balance thing as she sees fit.
And when this passes, will we have learned anything yet again from history? I shutter to answer with no.
I work for Home Depot as a flooring specialist. Today, I spent most of my time mixing paint because of call-offs. In some minds, paint is essential.Delete
I hate to be dark, but I have been saying Karma was just filing her nails and finishing her drink...and would be with them shortly.ReplyDelete
That's not being dark, that's being honest. Sadly, I don't think they will understand their judgment when it comes.Delete
Love the picture of Biggie. You have described the GOP when you said, "they will only discover the reality when it effects them." How true.ReplyDelete
Even then they will lie to themselves and blame Bill Clinton.Delete
That's one regal looking pup!ReplyDelete
He's really just a ham for the camera.Delete
