Covid Funnies

This week I had two Covid instances that killed me.
I mean one I could not laugh until the customer had walked away.
The other occurred during T’s Covid Shot.
Did I forget to mention that he had his first shot on Thursday?
Like a trooper.
No arm pain.
Feeling terrific.
21 more days and he can get dose #2.
Here is hoping we are both fully vaccinated before the end of June.
Incident #1
I am called to Customer Service to help a customer.
He had not read the sticker properly and thought a $23 package of bacon was on for $9.99.
Now while there have been seriously good sales like that not on this bacon that is for sure.
Sale price was $19.99 for almost 4lbs of thick sliced bacon.
I return the bacon as it had not yet left the store and need to get some information from the customer.
Me: May I have your name please?
Customer: What do you need my name for? I am fully vaccinated!
Me: Sir this has absolutely nothing to do with Covid and everything to do with the fact that we are returning product. (I am pretty proud the response rolled of my tongue before I could get the ‘did I just hear that stupid shit come out of your mouth?’ 🙄🙄😖😖look on my face)
Customer: W. Prquestinl
All fired at me in quick succession knowing I would not catch it.
Whatever.
Me: Thank you sir you have a wonderful day. 😀
I am still trying to fathom how the customer equated returning a product and needing to provide information with needing to tell me he was fully vaccinated.
I was not taking down his info as a close contact lol
Oh that some people give themselves such importance.
On Thursday we go for T’s shot.
We are sitting waiting for the nurses to get to us and T is getting a bit nervous.
They arrive and the nurse asks for the consent form.
Hand it over and she begins the questions.
Nurse: Can you tell me your name?
T: Tember
Nurse: And your last name?
T: Doerksen
Nurse: Can you tell me your full birth date?
T: Tember O’Donnel Ernest Doerksen😂😂😂😂
Nurse: ?
Me (snorting): Your birthday buddy.
T: Oh Aug. 7.
Nurse: And year?
T: 2008.
I am sitting in my corner giggling.🤣🤣🤣
T looks over and I brush his hair out of his eyes.
Me: Buddy that was like me and the guy on the phone.
T: Well yours was more embarrassing. Telling someone you had your name for 48 years and liked it just fine. 😝😝😝
Me: He doesn’t know me it was not embarrassing it was hilarious.
We both laughed.
I mean we all know that T and me and two peas but omg to have a similar mishearing and answering about our names.
He is at his dad’s this weekend.
It is going to 34 or something before you factor in the humidex.
I plan to spend the day in and out of the sun.🌞🌞
But spent outdoors.🏝🏝
Reading and listening to music.🎧📗📗
I have a bonus Saturday off and I am going to take it fully as a lazy hazy day.👙👙
OMG😜😜😜
I almost forgot about the penis drawing in health class.
The teacher took all the pictures and informed the class he would be turning them into the art teacher for extra credit or something?
IDK 🤷🤷🤷but when I have the info I will let y’all know

A Wee Tangent

Last night and this morning a few things caught my attention.
All three were posts that had been made on Facebook that showed up in my feed.
I usually scroll through and 😂😂 or 😞😞face but my comments if any are usually pretty mundane.
Yesterday and this morning though I was tired of this constant criticism being in my feed and guess I had to say something.
#1-As an individual yes this sign looks ridiculous. As a person who works retail I saw it differently.
#2-I hate that this is being politicized.
#3-I wish that people would stop pointing their fingers and saying ‘I hate him because he did not give me a,b or c.’
As mom always said to me and I repeat it to T as well: Hate is a powerful word. You may really dislike something but think long and hard before saying you hate a person. There is always so much more we are unaware of. (Last bit was my add on mom)
I am not wanting to sound like I am on a soap box.
I suppose though I am.
I am tired of negativity.
That is all.
Of mockery and shade being thrown.
Mayhap it is my Sunshine Pollyanna outlook but the further I get from the woman I use to be (negative/angry/bitter) the more it hurts to see the world continue to spiral downwards instead of up.
We have a unique chance in history to make real changes to push forward a new chapter to a better place in the annals of the past.
Or we continue to devolve until the world blows up.
IDK.
🤷🤷🤷🤷

PS I would like to add that there was an active campaign discouraging nurses who had been chosen from going to the game and enjoying it.
