It's been about six months for us, too. I'm not sure I want to go back but some days I feel like I want to because now I'll be living with people.

Six months ago I walked out of my last job, thinking I was off for 2 weeks. 5 months later I was still getting paid to sit at home and be unproductive, because they couldn't let go of the fact that they were going to be forced to let people work from home, and I landed a much better paying job, where I'm treated better and like an adult, and I get to work from home forever. I love it.

I'm starting to think that WFH would be a better choice for me at least until a vaccine or maybe just in general...my "I hate people" button seems to be triggered almost every time I go out now.

Guy came through my line the other day and went to pay with cash ... he was one of those guys who licks his thumb before sifting through his bills.

Unfortunately ... his mask was in the way.

He just looked at me and laughed, in some embarrassment. I had to laugh too (easy to do since I wouldn't be handling licked-thumb bills. UCK.)

So do we count that as a "plus" for COVID ... that it's helping at least some people stop a bad habit?

I tend to lick drips off of my hand when I'm carrying a to-go cup. Can't count how many times I've went to do that and gotten a mouthful of mask instead.

Omg, when I get produce I normally just breath (never lick, bleck) on my fingers so I can get those thin plastic bags open. It's funny to go to do that and realize it won't work.

That being said, I've been doing curbside pickup for weeks now since it's free and there are plenty of open time slots so I'm not getting a space that an at risk person should have.

Also, Arcus, people in some places are truly scary if you wear a mask aren't they?? I was so surprised recently. I had to do a long road trip which brought me to some states that are very against masks, even though the signs indicated they were supposed to be mandatory. I mean, I just wanted to use the rest room of a gas station and I got flat out death glares. People stopping what they were doing and silently watching me walk through the mini mart. I was concerned my car would be vandalized, honestly. I had only read about this sort of thing online. On my trip, in that same state I heard a lady in the restroom flush the toilet and walk straight out the door without washing her hands. People are NASTY and I'm wearing masks for a long time to come.

Talking We're strange here

A local distiller (Ogden, Utah) is producing hand sanitizer. You have your choice of "Five Husbands" or "Five Wives".
If you'll pick it up you can get a 2.5 gallon jug.

I never realized how useful those composting toilets are until using one when we went through a nature preserve a few days ago. Far fewer touch points in the restroom.

I'll take the "Five Husbands" please....oh, wait, I can't get actual five husbands? Well, damn.

That does sound like a good idea, though -- I could pick up one.
