Stopped at Walmart yesterday morning to get water, pie and sub for lunch. I walked up to checkout and set my basket on the belt and stood back from it. The woman that was checking out kept giving me glares. She was on the other side of the cc machine when the clerk told her the total, She said she would not pay until I backed away some....I said lord I apologize and backed up about 10 feet. I was more than 6 feet away from her to begin with.
When it was my turn to pay I asked the clerk if I was too close. She laughed said you wouldn't believe what they se on a shift.

It's just like everything else in this world right now. Got folks on both extremes, one that don't want anyone any where near them. Ones that think it's all hoax and walk right up on anyone and everyone.. Just the world we are in. No room for moderation in anything we do.
My son is meat cutter been working this whole time. Got all kinda of stories about dealing with people..Lots them just plain rude... He is going to need a vacation soon or think he will blow a valve..

We have really good health care here with two major hospitals.. We got shut down early so we haven't had many cases in our county. Has been only couple hospitalized and none died..Just to the north of us on MN side river they had a hot spot. Have had like 6 I think die there in a nursing home or assisted living??
Being I'm retired not much changed for me day to day.. I really don't know what to make of it all.. Is sure a mix of people don't give a rip and the ones that just rude you get near them. They need to just stay home..
Was a open the state Tea Party protest last Friday out along intersection form my house.. man was their some dandies in that bunch..

They tested the inmates and guards at our state pen in Lansing. Almost 800 people tested positive for antibodies.100% of prisoners and staff. Some got sick, some got bad sick and 4 prisoners died. I dont have any details on the 4 and their health issues but thats barely 1/2 a percent. Most of them did not even know they had the virus.

So far as I understand it, hepatitis and hiv are rampant in our penal system. I wonder if that 1/2 per cent death rate for exposed people is lower among the never been incarcerated or never been a drug addict population.

That's what most of the "hotspots" the media is blaring about. They test a prison that has 1,000 or so in it and then claim the WHOLE town or county is deathly sick. Heck how much more can you quarantine someone than locked in a prison !!!!
OR the most famous line is "cases have doubled or tripled in 3 days. " Yes because you tested more in those three days than you did all week scattered about.!!!! And the reason they tested them is because they know they are sick. Whats the point really other than running up the numbers. The people aren't going anywhere! Let's hear how many have died in those prisons from the virus. Here in Ky one prison had 450 cases and ZERO death's !!!!

Here in Ky it's not having enough test , it's having enough people show up at the testing sites !!!!

I was at price chopper this morning and I forgot to get brown sugar. So I headed back to the baking goods isle. Of course I was just entering the isle when a store District Manager asked me to observe the direction marks on the floor for customers safety. I said ok and asked him why he nor any of the employees are following the markers . I had just seen him go in and out of several isles in the wrong direction putting items back on the shelf. I said we are not sheep for the you to ride Hurd over but then you roam as you please. I asked if he would like to demonstrate how to follow the floor markings as he put my cart full of goods back? He apologized and said he should be setting a example and would try to do so from now on. He also offered me a discount on my groceries. I told him keep his discount. I said I am now going to walk down the next isle and come down the isle that you are in and will decide if I will purchase this cart of goods or give it to you to put back. Well I kept the groceries. He just struck me wrong and though he asked politely.

I can see the outdoors drive thru testing location at the local health dept from my front porch. They've been set up almost daily for past week and a half. I'd be stretching it to say I've seen 10 cars drive thru there in 10 days....


Enuf already!!!!

Same situation in MN. Once a month I have to go in for a blood draw since I take blood thinners. My appointment was 2:30. I had something else going and asked if I could come in at a different time. They said I could come in whenever I wanted. I got there and I was the only patient there. Normally there are 3 nurses drawing blood working there. There was only one. I found out each nurse works two days a week.

My wife and i had the same thing happen last weekend at Wal mart. Lady was checking out and yelled at my daughter to get back 6 feet. My wife a fine strutting hen proceeded to tell the lady she was 8-9 feet away and the lady started yelling at my wife because she didn't have a mask on. I didn't say a word. The lady first was critical of the kids then poked the bear. I didn't need to help at all. When she left the lady told us that little babies are dieing everywhere and god will be there to judge us. I am not sure where little babies are dieing everywhere and why we are to blame for it but my wife took it very personal as she always does.

I stopped going to our local Walmart. They narrowed the traffic flow down to one enter door and one exit door. That funneled customers together instead of promoting social distancing.
The store was so full of people at the checkouts, they were almost bumping into each other. There had to have been about 30 people standing in line to use the self-checkouts.

Walmart was allowed to be open because they sell food. Then they should have cordoned off the rest of the store outside of the food. But, the smaller hardware, clothing, shoe, ect. stores were not allowed to be open. I know they wouldn't have been nearly as busy and much safer than Walmart.
