    How the hell are you supposed to.... you know what, let me stop. You know me well enough to know where I'm going with this.

    Well I decided to go back early. I was beyond bored and they asked me if I wanted to. So I did. Now everyone’s mad at me. Gee, I’m sorry that I was raised to make my own legal money in some sort of way and only depend on government assistance if ABSOLUTELY necessary. If I can work, I will. If I can’t, I won’t. Stay at home and do nothing. I'm SO GLAD that y'all are happy being totally unproductive members of society.

    Some like sitting at home, some are even making more sitting at home than they did working.
    I never stopped working, have worked clear through this whole thing, I hated having to do any kind of shopping at all with the idiots LOL

    I don't blame you, Marlon. I couldn't have stayed home and done nothing even if I wasn't getting paid for it, but no way could I have taken money to sit at home.

    My husband and I both are considered essential and we've worked every day.

    We have been working also. But, production is REALLY slow so they've had us doing lots of cleaning, painting, etc. The PPP money runs out next week, so no guarantees after that...

    We have been doing a food pantry donation box at work. Was prepping it to deliver tomorrow and found about 6 cans of expired food. I realize that expiration dates are not totally accurate, But a can of Ravioli that expired in 2013!?
    WTH, people need a little help. They don't need food poisoning on top of all the other crap right now!!

    That being said, we have a good amount to take down, which is pretty cool:cool:

    Anyone else have a job where people go on vacation for a week, drop all their work in your lap, but provide minimal (if any) documentation about what they are working on?

    If so, can you recommend a bail bondsman in the Cleveland area? 'Cause I'm assuming you have been arrested for assault and battery and I am about to be.

    I had a move about twenty years ago that was kind of the opposite. I asked a bunch of people to help and (surprisingly) a lot of them showed up. Trouble was, I had reserved a 17' truck at U-Fool and when I showed up all they had to give me was a pickup truck. (I had no idea that they overbooked like airlines do.) It only took a few minutes for ten people to load a pickup truck, so most of my help spent a lot of time just standing around. Every time I'd return from dropping off a truckload I'd return to find that some of them had gotten bored and left. By lunchtime I was down to me and an old girlfriend, plus one other the person, at which point it started becoming real work.

    Can't top a dead moose, but we did have a possum zig when he should have zagged out in the street in front of my house last summer. I ended up grabbing a shovel and carrying it down the sidewalk to a vacant wooded lot. You get a lot of strange looks from people in passing cars when you walk down the street with a shovelful of dead possum. Several of them were even kind enough to honk at me...

    Plan here was to load it in the 4 wheeler trailer and take it down the musher trail into the boonies but the trail was too muddy. Now the moose, and I, are unwilling.

    No social distancing among the party flies; they should all be a moose length apart.

    Got into a deal like that many years ago helping an old guy ( well same age as me now ) move.
    Some went to the new place, some stayed at the old place, had things ready when he backed in, others were ready at new place when he got there.
    Then, .........................someone called ahead and told the guys to be very careful with 5 boxes marked with blue tape
    They were careful and opened them, full of good homemade elderberry wine
    few more loads, they were drunk, and the rest of the day went down hill
    sure am glad I was on the right end ;)
