my job is considered essential tooAs of right now they do. No idea what the government has in the works for making that mandatory.
I wouldn't go see a medical provider unless I was sick or percieved that I needed medical attention.
Are you saying that I CAN'T do that?
Not yet they don't. They can tell the boss the same thing, "Sorry, not risking the spread of coronavirus for your profits." Instead, you cackle that your job "is deemed essential" by people who think they are in charge of essential job deeming so you sing a quick chorus of "Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work I go," knowing that it isn't your financial life that is being ruined.
Just what is this "essential job" of yours?
Well, first of all I got plenty of that stuff. I'm one of those preppers that liberals sneered at because they knew government would prevent any disaster that we were foolishly prepping for.
Second of all, I don't advocate everyone stay home, I advocate choice. Do you seriously believe that the night stockers at Walmart are working their asses off getting overtime because they are concerned I'll run out of bread, canned food and wine? Hell no, they want to stay afloat financially and are glad that this time the "are deemed essential."
I reject that it is "whining" anymore than you are whining when you disagree with what I say.
I am being told but there is no teeth behind the order so I'm not too concerned about it.
Yesterday I talked to the man who owns the essential liquor store next door to the essential Italian restaurant. He came from Vietnam as a teenager in a shrimp boat not intended for long voyages. When I walked in the store, he was talking to a customer in a heavy accent: "Dey call dis a shutdown? Ahh dis no shutdown. That Le Duan, he make a shutdown evahbody shut da fuck down."
But he was only talking that way because the customer was new and that's his act. When I got to the counter with my Ezra Brooks, he told me he would stay open as long as they let him. If he shuts down for two weeks, he believes he will lose his business.
Do you know why liquor stores are deemed essential?
I'm glad for his sake they are, but what is the reasoning?
we do exist
I could survive a little while without income too, and would rather be at home
not everyone is a selfish entitled jerk
