Be careful

All those young people at spring break and New Orleans super party are the same people that come back and prepare fast food. Do you think they care about food service protocol. You think they wash hands. Cash passed back and forth. Would you let them baby sit your child? Not all, but many believe the virus is a hoax and only care about quitting time and the next party.

I rarely ever eat fast food, never red meat, rarely fried food, but I do love the seasonal Fish sandwich Bojangles and others offer this time of year. 2 For 5 dollars........I mean, budget wise. But, I can’t take the chance right now. Grilled fish at home will have to work. I am one of the let em die age guys. Die For those careless young flakes. Nah. Eat wisely folks.

2. Most are changing their minds fast, but yes. Definitely.

Becoming aware doesn't equal becoming sufficiently disciplined.

They're also all over college towns. One hopes their college administrations also are now "woke" and doing a far more responsible job than the University of Florida Gainesville products I saw a couple weeks ago suggested. My guess was no one had told most of the adolescents I saw to wash their hands since they were last around their mothers.

3. If I go out... which is only twice in the last three weeks
Fri Mar 27, 2020, 11:04 AM

and I get any change from a transaction (mostly I try to use my debit card)...

Any bills I get I handle with my gloves only... before touching them I wipe both sides of the paper money with an alcohol wipe, then I take my gloves off and put the bills in my pocket and go inside the house. The debit card gets a wipe too.

Paranoid? Maybe...

gloves and mask... touch nothing with my clothing, only with a gloved hand... wipe every hard surface (paper, cardboard, glass, metal) before bringing any item in the house. Dispose of the gloves and mask outside).

BTW, the masks I use are homemade and lined with alcohol wipes.

I take the mask off in the car and while outdoors... I only put it on in the store.

But yeah,,, I should have bought a few N95s before the rush. Oops...

and I really thought I was pretty smart since I started stocking up on things back in January.

What’s your point? We are generally discussing. Please tap the “I am not a robot” button. How many squares in this picture has a tractor?

Felt certain I tapped General Discussion. Usually careful about that. If I made a mistake, I WILL take FULL responsibility, unlike some we pay to be responsible. Not afraid to admit I have made a few in my years. Cheers. I will wear readers, and not post on my IPhone, in the sun, on the deck while, Staying Home and loving it. Cheers.

8. Are they voting in the Primaries?

In that case, I guess that would make this the correct forum.
Otherwise, maybe not.
