I am here. 14 cases yesterday in my county, my sister is overseas. My city is shutdown, completely desolate. How is everyone doing? I hope you are well.

I'd say the biggest concern is fear itself.

I receive daily updates on the events in my city/county, as well as the city and county of where I work, and my state. I've been very fortunate to live in a community and work for a company that have both been incredible in a time like this. I've posted it on physical bulletin boards so I might as well do so here too: If anyone's in the San Antonio or Austin, TX metro areas and in need of anything, I've got plenty of most things, just message me here or on Reddit and I'll see you in a bit.

The rules are simple: stay indoors, wash your f*cking hands and don't hoard all the toilet paper. It's incredible how many people aren't taking any heed of this. I've got my own personal reasons to be sensible but even if I didn't - basic human decency should be making people act right. Just last night a bunch of kids set a field near my house on fire because apparently their parents can't seem to control their damn kids when there's no school. I'm constantly in a state of "are you f*cking kidding me?" right now. And that has a lot to do with working in retail. I've used so much hand sanitizer lately I might as well just drink the damn stuff. I wish people would stop using cash right now and just pay with their cards. ;_;

Toilet paper is the last on my list. When I go shopping I tend to buy the same lot without thinking so I'm good there. My complex just installed a tub of hand sanitizer free for use. My bank is going nuts however that was always the norm I think if things can return to normal I'll probably switch to a new branch here pretty soon. I went back to paper checks at my work which was nigh but impossible for HR, stashing my cash in my safe. Since my city is shutdown for the next 30 days everyone is skateboarding and terrorizing the disabled. When you do have to go out keep your distance everyone is self medicating and will make wrong decisions.

I've been deemed an essential worker and so must continue working at work. I commute to and from counties currently in lockdown. I've been pulled over four times this week for being on the road. My job is to make large plastic covered blankets that the auto industry uses to make a variety of different products. Meanwhile the auto industry is closed or repurposing their factories to make life-saving ventilators and PPE.

I'm grateful that I get to go out and continue getting paid. I resent that the reason is because my company is taking advantage of technically being considered essential so that we can make useless product no one is going to buy until after the crisis and probably at a huge markup. Meanwhile my last job gave everyone a month off with full pay and household essentials and a grocery gift card.

At least I can get hard liquor delivered now but I don't know, even those guys are repurposing to make hand sanitizer and disinfectants. I wish I could be making something that matters right now. :/

I used to mold plastic and textiles. My state legalized homebrew. I was officially branded a reject got called back in yesterday free 2 hours of overtime for the next month, they burnt all their profit and cant afford to close shop. Some of our customer base is backlogged 3months. I remember in the 90s with the bird flu they would hand out turkeys just to get us to shop. When the dust has settled I'd love to come out man we're a family. For me it was always about the money. All I crave are life's little absurdities. You know I took AP art for four years in high school and it was enough to make want to gouge my eyes out :pirate:!!! Don't fret though you are making a difference in peoples lives in more ways than one:thumbsup:

On vacation right now, but back to work on Tuesday. The company isn't in the best place with their stores having to be closed down so I'll see how that goes. Thankfully my girlfriend got a job so we're not going to be out of money even if I lose mine (also I was planning on quitting soon anyway). Not really worried about that.

Shops here are having massive sales and idiots are flocking there prompting the government to apply stricter policies - malls are closed except for pharmacies and telecom stores.
Two days ago:

Otherwise not really feeling the impact of isolation. We're living pretty much how we would otherwise except we're not visiting my parents. Sucks for the kid, being stuck in a small apartment.
