Default Speaking of people "out of the loop"...

OK, usually during the spring and summer and into the fall, our small printing business does up a flyer for people who want to advertise garage sales. People bring us their info, we type them all up with a little map, and bargain hunters come to us on the weekends so they can find pre-used bargains. It's a big thing in our small town, and it gets people in the door and on their minds.

However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and social distancing and the general fear of getting sick from strangers has people not doing this.

Today I got a call from someone asking "Are there any garage sales today?"

Me: "No, no one is having any sales."

Them: "Why?"

That took me a moment to process...

Me: "Um... with the pandemic, and the social distancing... would you want a hundred strangers showing up at your house?"

Them: "... oooh. Right."

*click*

Some people.




(and I knew who the guy was, he runs a business that is currently being affected by the lack of people traveling BECAUSE of the pandemic...)
