Well, today is Tuesday and I'm working my 7th day in this schedule. I have off tomorrow and Thursday, yippee... oh, wait, the forecast for tomorrow is for on and off again rain, with a high of 50 (F). I might have to do something like a really long bike ride since I'm not going to be able to do anything much outside.
I did sign a customer up for a measure yesterday. She and her husband had just closed on a new townhouse, and, of course, she asked "how soon can we have this installed? By the end of the month?" I told her that was a good time frame. Guarantee nothing. One of my fellow sales specialists set up a measure over the phone and did just that; there are going to be problems with that job.
In case you hadn't realized it yet, this little Covid - 19 is going to be with us for a while. I think back on that supposed 'medic' who got angry and scolded me "this is going to be gone by the 18th." I suspect he go that from the Idiot Jerk in the White House, a less than human individual who has no regard for human life. This is evidenced by the casualty predictions, which once again beginning to rise as is shown in this document. Remember when the CDC was predicting we were going to lose 60,000 lives? Well, they've up'd their prediction, in case you didn't know. Now they're saying 100,000 by June 1 with almost 3000 more a day. Do the math and you'll see they're low-balling that number.
Why, you ask? Conservatives want to ease restrictions and get people back to work in a very unsafe environment. It's about the buckos in the bank, you know? This is the Republican version of Clinton's "it's the economy, stupid," except they're going to kill people. And they're going to lose a lot of votes along the way. Those very people who love the Idiot Jerk in the White House are running around without masks, they're not practicing safe distancing, and he's encouraging their behavior. He doesn't care if they live or die, as long as they go back to work. What neither he nor they understand is that a vast majority of the country would rather focus on health and safety rather than dollars and cents. We all know the economy is going to come back... it always has, the recovery is just not going to be as fast as he and they want it to be. Tough Shit.
And... finally... yesterday as I was heading to my car I saw something amazing. Glen is blooming! And it looks like he... she... it is wearing a little green hat!
I never, ever thought Glen was going to put on such a show!
I really do think it has yet to explode in the US. All those idiots not only not wearing masks but not social distancing at all. Sadly it's going to go off like a rocket! And all that for the sake of "opening up the economy" à la Trump!ReplyDelete
They are in such a terrible state of denial, but then the Republican party didn't want to believe it in the first place. How could something like that happen here?Delete
glen is letting his inner drag queen out! maddie can give him some pointers.ReplyDelete
Yepper, he was really boppin' in the breeze when I got home.Delete
I don't enjoy being sequestered inside, even if it is still in the fifties this week. I am not finding a deeper understanding of life here :)ReplyDelete
Did you try staring at your navel while sitting in the lotus position. :)Delete
Yay for Glen! Proudly blooming because he/she/it was born this way!ReplyDelete
Maybe I can get Disney interested... some sort of animated feature.Delete
I'm with Treaders. If we open everything back up willy nilly, we're setting ourselves up for round two.ReplyDelete
Those buffoons running this show have never, ever been able to understand how wrong they are.Delete
Glen, you werk it gurl! So Glen is flower fluid, nice.ReplyDelete
I'm hoping he... or she... self-pollinates! That would be amazing!Delete
Yesterday I was reading where down in the States people are starting boycotts of Costco because they are asking customers to wear a mask. I can't believe the online backlash saying that it's propaganda and that there is no danger from the virus. It's almost like that old Monty Python skit where a guy's arms are being chopped off and he's in denial saying, "it's only a flesh wound".ReplyDelete
Except that was absurdly funny. As I said before, no Republican is going to take this seriously until either Gramps or Granny dies.Delete
After what Im seeing in the news, I think it's going to be even above 100,000 by june 1. Between the pictures of beaches, these unprotected rallies and protests, and a shocked picture of a PACKED central park over the weekend, which shocked me....no one seems to be listening.ReplyDelete
Once it's hot and beautiful, Mother Nature is going to lure stir crazy people out in numbers, under the earthly delight of hot, nice, summer weather. Little do they know what a bitch she is...and planting the germ seeds to claim even more...... like I said , humans never learn. I say let the dumb shits go.
Oh, my yes, we're going to hit 100,000 in about 2 weeks.Delete
The Glen is adorable!ReplyDelete
And I think people are going to keep getting infected and dying. We’re plateauing. The infection is not stopping. Especially with the trumpanzees running around screaming bullshit. The idea is to get people out ASAP and get a little spike in revenue for some business. By the end of July, we’ll be back to what we saw in March.
Yeah, I'd say Glen was a real sweetheart, but I've detected a bit of an attitude.Delete
The Idiot jerk has always been a wheelin' dealin' schmoozer and a terrible businessman.
