Wearing a mask protects you and others – it’s not all about you!!
Your Freedom Ends When It Harms Others And They Can Die From What You Did!!

Another Covid Rant

Well another day another dollar.
I was in the lobby all day today. Cart Cleaning shift. And while there are those who would hate it I was in my glory.
It was a beautiful day.
Sunshine and warm.
Really warm.
Have to wear a face shield and was in full uniform.
Full pants-black in color-temp hit real feel of 40 Celsius.
I was dying.
Guess what though?
I get to wear shorts while working Cart Cleaning Shift. I went and got a pair at lunch. Wow what a difference half a pair of pants makes. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Now though that is not what my conversation is about. Rather get ready for yet another Covid rant and people’s ignorance.
Social distancing is not hard.
2 meters-6 feet……hell most places even have circles on the floor/lines/arrows and yet……
Had a woman inform me today that she is more likely to die of heat stroke than Covid. Cool. Let me know how that works out for you.
Heat stroke is pretty easy for most people to avoid.
Water. Shade. Water. Shade. Repeat. Stay out of the sun.
Hell I mean when they issue a heat warning those are things they tell you to do.
Most people do right?
What the hell is the matter with people not wanting to protecting themselves and others?
I really don’t care if you don’t want to wear a face mask.
I don’t care that you don’t want to sanitize your hands.
What I do care about is when y’all come thronging through the door pushing and standing side by side and bursting past people in the entrance.
Take a moment and imagine a crowd being funneled through a hall that gets narrower. This is the space I work in.
It can get congested.
What I had to do today so that grown adults who have been told about social distancing…..who shop in our store…..some who haven’t….and remind them about social distancing.
Our goal is the protection and care of our customers. Of ourselves. People have no clue……so today as people were standing outside bitching that they
had to wait I shrugged my shoulders and directed traffic. Had a guy come up and say we are doing lines again I am not waiting.  Ok bye bye there are other
stores in the town who are not taking care of their customers go shop there.
I know I come on and rant every so often. Usually I am fairly laid back and easy. But now this is again becoming a point where people are putting their concerns
above anyone else. And that is where I have problems.
When I watch you push by my senior lady who I just held hands with so she could get up the curb also with her husband damn rights I am going to rant and rave.
I cannot tell you to your face what a giant ass idiot you are but I can come on here and let the world know all about you.
My lady always came in with her husband. Bright smile sweetest little thing. Since March only he has been coming in shopping. Today when they came I could tell she had been unwell. Her hair is thin and short. She had an abrasion behind her ear. Was a little lost. Never mind being a little shaky on her feet. I watched you decide that
waiting the one to two minutes it took her to get moving through the door and on her way shopping was too damn annoying for you so you pushed passed her.
Too many people these days have lost common courtesy. Too many people are forgetting basic social norms. Our elderly are to be protected. Our elderly are to be
kept safe. Our elderly are all mothers and fathers of someone.
Next time you feel like being a prick/bitch to the senior who is moving a little slowly/shakily and you want to go by……remember there is always another asshole/bitch just like you treating your parents that way.
This is my rant. This is where I am going to leave it.
