There has been very little change at work since my last update. A few more of my coworkers are now wearing masks, about 20% of them. Masks are not required at work but company management wants everyone to sign a waiver stating that if you choose not to wear one they can’t be held responsible if you get sick.
Speaking of masks, I’m starting to see them now, discarded, in the parking lots at work and the stores I go to. I’m referring to those cheap throwaway type masks, mostly the baby blue ones and I’m seeing them everywhere. Left there by filthy, disgusting people who feel they need to wear a mask in public but discard it as they get back in their car.
Also speaking of masks, it’s been my observation that more young people are wearing them, compared to middle-aged and older people. Young people are supposed to be the ones who live recklessly and think they’ll live forever. What’s happened to them?
Although I watch very little television I am already tired of the commercials telling us we’ll get through this and what so-and-so company is doing to help in this crisis. You’re not trying to help; you just want the sheep out there to remember your company name if they ever have money again.
I have decided to take some vacation time and won’t be going in to work for the rest of May. Our governor/want-to-be dictator is slowly allowing businesses to reopen. I have a small hope that by the time I go back at least some sense of normalcy will have come back too.
More updates to follow.
