Depressing shit-show at the Walgreens today ...

The past couple weeks mask use has been way up at my local red-area Walgreens, which was heartening. But today I went in, it was more busy than I've seen it in weeks (saw about 12 people in total) ... and literally NOBODY but me (and employees) were in masks.

There was even some idiot woman rocking her 'Fuck Social Distancing' t-shirt.

We were at adjacent registers, and at one point I heard her say she's having trouble understanding the middle-eastern gentleman ringing her up, and she was like 'between your accent and the mask, I'm having a hard time hearing you'. Not in a mean way, but ...

You don't how hard it was to bite my tongue in that moment.

Actually some of you probably do

I at least wanted to blurt out 'Clever Shirt!' and have her say something like 'Yeah' and then I go 'Totally keeps people the fuck away from you right? It's genius!' and then just walk away and leave her to figure it out on her own.

for folks who went out clubbing in the mid 1980's, a trio of dance floor classics

from Jimmy Somerville that you never hear anymore.

These make me hella nostalgic







Edit: okay, a bonus 4th track!

A co-worker of mine, in his 30's and fully vaxxed just got over a breakthrough case after a week

off of work and feeling like shit, I just found out.

I knew he was out sick and guessed it might be the Rona, but just got confirmation. Don't have any more details yet but I know he pulled through well enough to be back at work (edit: back working from home I should've said) after 1 week off, and that he was feeling real bad but didn't have to go to the hospital. Believe he got his shots around may/june like I did.

Guy is hella smart, healthy lifestyle, and a Trump-hating liberal like all of us. Still got it.

Just thought I'd share.

But if you prefer the original video with 1980 video sound quality ...
