yeah seriously. My state has cancelled public schools and restaurants have shut down dining areas and all you do is drive through or take out (for now) everyone is panic shopping because the threat of quarantine is very real in my area. There has even been a confirmed case of corona virus in the county I live in.

I live in NY and my job is business as usual. Nothing has changed. All restaurants/movies/schools/diners are closed though for like 2 weeks.

Was that the announced DuPage cases?

Good luck to everyone fighting the fight out there.

The "best" is watching older, upper middle-age folks who've got their retirement money tied up in the markets trying to keep a brave face and a chuckle while they tell you they're not sure how they're gonna survive now that everything they've worked 40 years for is gone in a few days. I can do the ol' Fake Smile with the best of 'em, but that sh*t's just heartbreaking. Lots of tears and uncertainty, today.

Some of the members of my gym work in finance; they're split down the middle between "It's gonna blow over" and trying to find the tallest window to jump out of. More people are gonna die from the panic and fallout and the economic collapse than the virus. Way, WAY more. Mark my words.

9 hr shifts, and out of all that time, only about 35 or so minutes of it is NOT spent doing actual work. And that is my break time and bathroom breaks if I take one. The rest of the time, I am taking orders, cleaning, making drinks, stocking, handing out food, or running a cash register.

I feel I lucked out where I just started working for the first time in 2009-2010, after the early 2000’s since I was still in school and then College at the time and I never did any part time work while I was in school.

I’ve only been in the work force for about a decade, actually less than that since there were a few years I was out of work in between. But even while working when I was at the airport for 4 years I always had time to look at my phone while I was working. Of course the weather wasn’t good most of the time but that was a different issue.

Now I just sit by a computer desk all day spacing out for 7 out of those 8 hours or more. I have no quotas to fill and no deadlines to meet, so that’s why I enjoy staying relatively low on the totem pole in the job structure. No idea why people want to climb that corporate ladder besides making more money, it’s just too much work.
