So we're all wondering if we've really been exposed. Fun times.


I might have you beat. I had one supervisor complain that I wasn't working Sunday overtime, because I was running the Chicago Triathlon. She was upset, because the data in the database was messy. But the data was messy because of idiotic decisions she made during tax season. Basically, she wanted me to do the overtime to fix her mistakes. I don't work there anymore.



oh dang, i'm way behind in my lurking!! good griefs all around!! and many many hugses!! Hug

Tomorrow is the 4th of July.
Around here it means fireworks.
Celebrations. Not sure what it
Means in the big cities...

The official fireworks shows here have all been cancelled. The unofficial ones have already been going on for the last three weeks. Crazy

Hoping they use up their supply tomorrow and it doesn't go on for another three weeks.

Only if we test positive. And that guy doesn't have it. He was a new hire who was supposed to be training off-site - he told that location that he was working at our location while we thought he was working at their location. His boss called them to verify his payroll for that period, and discovered he hadn't been working at all. So the guy came waltzing in a few days later like nothing had happened, and when confronted he totally blew up and then claimed he had COVID. And has been claiming for the last two weeks that he just keeps getting sicker and has been unable to schedule a test. Which is BS. I checked to see how difficult it was to get a test because I was curious, and there are plenty of appointments.

Happy Independence Day to all in the US, and citizens of the US visiting or residing elsewhere!

I think this is the first time in several years I didn't hear any home fireworks/fire crackers go off the night before. We'll see if that carries through tonight.

(I am a native born US citizen, but I find this meme funny...)

This year is basically a live-action horror movie. Are you sure those are the lines you want to go with?

More of a disaster movie, really, but it's not Charlton Heston in the pilot's seat.

Ended up working 13 hrs 15 minutes
On monday instead of my usual 10.
But my captain went to the major today
And we got out on time. The building
Even showered my inmates for me.

And if you aren't reading the Pink Floyd
Thread on vespers you should be. Stevie G
Are breaking down every Floyd release in
Order of release. I'm hoping we do solo album
Stuff after this. Worthy of a Watchie...

Could be some temporal nonsense afoot. There's no rational reason to explain why this week has been so long.

My boss was out on vacation all week, so my workload was about doubled. She's traveling across the country visiting all her friends and extended family, and she'd better not come back sick. I wouldn't want to travel right now. She swears she's taking allll the precautions, but considering she never wears her mask properly, and is constantly touching her face, I'm a little worried.

What city are you from Sorus? I read a headline the other day that said a very high percentage of New York residents were already testing positive for antibodies - something around seventy percent I think it was - maybe the same pertains elsewhere as well.

San Francisco. We had things under control until they recently relaxed the lockdown, and now cases are climbing.

I would be interested in getting an antibody test. I was really sick back in January, which I wrote off as a bad cold because there were no confirmed cases of COVID in the US at the time - and it probably was a cold, but if I had the same symptoms today, I would have no doubt it was COVID. A lot of IFs there though - IF it was, IF having it grants immunity, IF the immunity lasts.

People here came out of lockdown acting like it's over, and that's very frustrating to those of us who have worked through the whole damn thing and are still taking precautions seriously.

Signs emerging (as reported by the UK press today) that immunity is pretty short lived. Measurements of antibodies apparently show a sharp decline following a few months, which is good news (I suppose) for the Big-Pharma companies that are into vaccine production (coz they'll get to get people to have one every year instead of just a one-off) but not so good for the rest of us.

Sad
