Sunday. Yippee. Yesterday morning the store manager asked if I'd work my first 2 hours in paint today. No problem. Homer buckets (5 gallon orange buckets) have been set up as a barricade in front of the desk to keep customers back and obligatory 6 feet. There are dumbshits out there, you know?
As far as the flooring department goes, I got one call yesterday from a customer who had been measured and was questioning when the installs were going to begin. My response: "installs have been stopped until further notice." The day before I received a call from a whining woman who's daughter's living room was supposed to get measured... and that was cancelled. She wanted to be first up on the list when they started measuring again. I put her in the system for 4/10, the first day available. I told her that might change. She's one of those simple minds who simply don't understand.
If you read Random Thoughts you know Treaders lockdown was extended. She seems to be handling it well. When that happens in America (and it's on it's way) people are going to go bat shit crazy. I know because yesterday the store was filled with browsers again; couples pushing around a shopping cart with just one can of spray paint, or a box of screws. When asked, they will tell you, "we're just looking." The idea that more people congregate in one area, the higher your risk gets for being infected.
And, speaking for congregating, Covid - 19 is giving us all a primary reason for why there needs to be a separation of Church and State. A minority group of Americans has managed to get a dumb ass into the White House and he is going to try and give these Zealots every wish their selfish little hearts desire. Because they are Zealots concerned only with their personal, selfish beliefs, they will ignore what is happening to the rest of the world. It's only about themselves. They beliefs put them above everyone else, they make them special. Once this shit is over, we need to enforce the separation of Church and State. They can believe what ever they want, we just need to take the power away from them and never let them have it again.
Finally, yesterday we had rain, slow and soaking through most of the day. Last evening we had thunderstorms, with more noise than anything else. In the afternoon, though, I ran out and snapped another picture of my nectarine blossoms in the rain.
