Now I’m not saying we shouldn’t do our #socialdistancing thing and #stayhome as much as possible, we absolutely should, but some of these decisions others are making for us are totally ridiculous. Like:
- Designating liquor stores as non-essential when, in fact, buying wine, beer, and liquor in a mostly empty liquor store would be less dangerous than in a grocery store where there are more people.
(Okay so we now order wine online.)
- Closing parks and beaches when, in many cases, you could quite easily enjoy some fresh air and exercise and still keep your social distance. Otherwise, people crowd the side of the roads to park, being in closer proximity than if they parked in a designated parking lot.
(We have our spots so it doesn’t really affect us but I hate to see such ridiculousness.)
- Cox designating new installs as nonessential when, in fact, you contracted to build a new house way before Covid-19 was a thing, your job is essential, but the only way you can work is to work at home and need internet. I don’t often usually this, but WTF??? (“What’s This Foolishness”) – lol!
(Okay, so we go with Century Link and Cox won’t be part of our lives at all anymore. We already switched to YouTubeTV a couple of months back due to their ridiculousness.
Neither of us suffer fools well, and this whole situation smacks of fools in charge.
I’m definitely in the camp of opening the country gradually and carefully, instituting different ways of doing things. But as it is now, it feels like there’s a power grab and abuse of power, creating situations that will cause critical harm down the road. We must work together to find the balance.
The house is almost finished. The side fence is finished, along with the front and side landscaping, the A/C unit is installed. Waiting for last-minute touches like the trim paint and some touch-ups to the exterior before our first walkthrough. The movers and “junk” haulers are booked and are prepared for social distancing, sanitizers, etc.
So anxious to be home during a time like this.
