    Already people are dying of things like heart attacks and strokes because they are scared to go to the hospital.
    probably just old people put out of their misery from whom death was a blessing for their unhealthy selves anyway.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Our governor has disappointed me for the first time. Casinos were supposed to be in phase 3 or 4. Now phase 2 is June 4th with casinos opening. My DIL works there and she and my son are upset. We are going to all call his office. Y, those people should have been arrested and how horrible of a person do you have to be to even do that?

    That is seriously effed up. Whether meant as a cruel unfunny joke, or to actually inflict harm that's just beyond awful. I'm so sorry your neighbor had to go through that. It's probably a good thing I don't work in a supermarket. If that happened to me I likely would have thrown the cake in their face, told them to go to hell, sanitized my hands, and then been out of a job.

    I have heard of drunks not wanting to be arrested telling police they have covid but I was shocked a similar threat would happen in a supermarket.

    sounds to me mostly the type of thing a mentally ill homeless person might do, of which one is bound to run into here and there around here. not a funny joke, well yea that type just isn't right in the head though.

    It would be interesting to know. Given the number of stories I’ve read (Often with video) about crappy humans who most definitely are not homeless (woman coughing on employee who insisted on a mask stories are fairly common) I sadly tend to assume that this was just a stupid mean a-hole not a whacked out homeless person.

    Just found out the position went to the other candidate. They had carrier contract negotiating experience that I didn't have. I'd never done it. Think I'm going to probably have better luck sticking with the customs brokerage stuff. The industry recruiter says things show signs of getting better with the SAH order expiring later this week.

    Sorry, Tradd. I hope things really are getting better. With your experience, I would think something will come along quickly for you once things start opening up.
