Tuesday, eh?[DOT 7/4/20]

I’m really impressed with everyone managing to work from home and deal with kids and pets. I only have to deal with myself and sometimes the Mr., and that’s enough for me. Gentle reminder: you don’t have to do all the things right now. It’s OK to give yourself a break.

He’s only apologizing because he got caught.

Deservedly so!

This could be a long fight. People should be told the truth.

Silver lining?

Hang in there!!



  1. Had another talk with a manager about the CoVID-19 social distancing. Some guys don’t get it. We had one asshole think that he could plow through a shift changeover to get to the locker room early… we aren’t supposed to. I (and others) told him that he shouldn’t be here. He blew all of us off. A fuck you gets another fuck you. He has a nice appointment today with the manager to discuss his poor attitude and arrogant stupidity (I don’t like being the rat, but my tolerance for stupid is pretty much gone.) The managers must think I’m a fucking pain in the ass. Yeah, I am especially when shit gets real.

    Other guys want to talk to their friends on other shifts. I get that because I want to, but txt them. I mentioned this also to the managers, to remind folks but I didn’t name names as I said, I get it. More gentle prodding to remind folks that CoVID-19 isn’t fucking around.

    Explains why I’m driving a coworker to work during this shift. The buses are still crowded where I am so I drive him to protect him (and myself, let’s be honest here) from catching it. Night time allows for social distancing on the bus.

      as it should be. we have enough toddlers making decisions…

      I hope he shows him these:

  2. LOL.

    If the Karens of the world stop acting/thinking like Karens then I won’t call them Karens. Pretty simple… but to paraphrase what a Prussian General once wrote (about warfare but I think it applies): “Everything about being a Karen is simple; but the simplest things are hard.”

  3. Unfortunately, I’m not with Allstate. Fortunately, I’m not driving much at all. I put gas in my car last … Friday? Maybe Saturday. They’re starting to blur together, even with work. The tank really wasn’t empty, but I had made a trip to the grocery store and heck, might as well while I’m out. Anyway, I realized the last time I gassed up was in early March. Silver linings.
