    It infuriates me to see these fucking assholes worry about their portfolios while a typhoon is descending on our country. Spats, I’ve always liked you and can appreciate you are different than most. But, I agree with most, fuck you right in the ear. This thing is exploding and you’re carrying water for the people that did nothing but downplay the problem. You are on ignore.
    my wrenching guy has no business...

    i tried to help another small business owner who wanted hand sanitizer. They couldn't buy any until june thru their supplier. The cheapest rubbing alcohol i could find was $20/liter. That would make a liter and a quarter of hand sanitizer plus buying a few dyi dispensers.

    These are really unusual times

    I don’t know why I even care. Back in the day I used to be 100% ready to die every time the helicopter took off. Motorcycles, whatever. I never thought I’d live this long.
    I think I just resent being held in such disregard by the public and my supervisors that exposing me to 150 gross people every day is like “hey maybe we’ll kill the bus driver, but we have to make sure people can go get Doritos and Mountain Dew” I dunno. When it’s time to talk about our pay, we’re not doing important work. When it comes time to protect us from the deadly virus we’re suddenly so important we’re supposed to die for it. Okey dokey. Like I said, Fuck it.
    Hang in there man.

    @ BobMc, there’s an article out there talking about how effective common soap is against this. No alc or bleach required in lots of conditions.

    This does suck for you
    I take it they don’t provide you a respirator or latex gloves?
    Seems to me if you get sick it’s a work comp situation. Is your union worth a shit?

    An obvious partial solution would be to limit number of passengers at any point in time to achieve distance. Still have issues with cleaning the bus frequently though...

    I do think introducing Buford to your supervisor would be worthwhile. Take video.

    A strong economy benefits the incumbent President's re-election chances, and thus must be destroyed.

    Also, local transit outside big cities runs at such a tremendous loss that it almost doesn't matter. Here in Tahoe the farebox recovery ratio was around 4%, last I checked. That means bus fares literally paid for 4% of the cost of the bus system. The other 96% was taxpayer subsidies. They instituted a bunch of cuts and route consolidations with the hope of raising that to as much as 8 or 9% (91-92% taxpayer subsidies) which was viewed as a noble but difficult goal that they might not be able to ever meet.

    In local news:
    - local distillery has shifted to making hand sanitizer for public safety organizations - giving it away

    - lady in front of me at the store Tuesday paid for about half of the groceries for the lady in front of her, when her EBT card wouldn’t work.

    -And this lady helps out an elderly couple afraid to go into a store. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronav...egon-outbreak/

    - Was supposed to go on MTB ride Saturday. Found out today that my riding partner was visited by a friend with homemade brownies. After consuming one, his friend told him about just returning from a family wedding in Chicago, and now a bunch of his relatives are now sick. They haven’t been tested though. We aren’t riding together for two weeks...

    He's too conscientious. He'll keep driving until the authorities realize that having a roving coronavirus ward loose in the city might not be a great idea.

    You have to be diagnosed with COVID-19 to get the 2-week Bennie's that they just passed. Maybe if he got tested today it would kick in when the program starts in early April? That is if he's not part of the 48% that don't qualify. Merica! Fuck yeah!

    I think my examples are emblematic - three acts of kindness partially offset by one world class pendejo.

    In unrelated news, I take the dog for a walk every evening around the neighborhood duck pond. Usually itís pretty empty. A nice side effect (helped by the fact that itís not raining, 80į and everything is in full bloom) is that the whole neighborhood is out walking dogs every night.

    Everyone walking tonight was treated to a glaring example of why we canít have nice things and are all destined for shelter in place before we know it:

    A clearly-coordinated group picnic by the pond, consisting of 5-7 groups of 10-20 young women (say 21-31 years old) a piece, drinking wine and generally having a great time very close to each other, was going despite the shameful sneers of everyone who walked by, much less voicing their concerns.

    They got the hint, no clue how long they were there, and then piled into their suvs, 5-8 girls per.

    All day rosť when youíre on dadís account must mean fuck the rest of us.

    Probably.


    I took it as a sign of things to come and hit the liquor store after my walk (which had the most sanitizer stations Iíve ever seen) and bought an entire regulation bar for the upcoming lock-in.
    I still call it The Jake.
