I was eating a tamale at work last night when a coworker asked if I had plans to save the husk for toilet paper.

Sorry, not a chance. It's my daily mug. I've traveled thousands of miles with it. It's either in my hand, sitting in front of me or in my luggage when not in use. I've hiked and activated SOTA summits with it, vacationed with it etc etc

Its seen some action, If it could only talk...

You really know how to hurt me.

That’s still one of my favorite pics on CPS.

Woot. All the overtime I want at double pay and a bonus for working during the crisis. Home Depot also gave more free sick leave days.

Yep, congrats.

The only time in my career when I didn't want to be essential was when I was requesting the enhanced separation/retirement package that was being offered.

I've seen a few social media posts advising young adults to pay attention to what is being deemed as 'essential' work and consider going in to those fields. Back when I was a young machinist an old drifter fella named Curt told me "You'll never get rich, but you'll never go hungry either". I have an uncle who was a mechanic (automotive tech in modern speak) who said "There's a reason my toolbox has wheels on it." Uncle Jan never worked at the same place more than three years - he's one of those guys who doesn't like being bossed - but I don't think he was ever out of work for more than a week. It's telling though, that he's 80 years old and still working. In the rental department at Home Depot as it happens.

My company is essential because we service food factories. People gotta have their frozen biscuits and fake meat you know.

So I had a day at the sporting clays range set up with my oldest granddaughter for today. The governor announced a mandatory stay at home starting today and the range closed. so I cancelled my "Off Time" and while my granddaughter is sleeping in, my wife and I are working from home. Praise God we are not sick and that we have jobs and I am working on an attitude adjustment...not that you care

I care.

Same here.
Our range was set to open on April 1. I was really looking forward to it.

Yes, I care. And I get it. I've gotten a ton of complaints about our fields being closed. Nothing I can do about it.

I would think golf courses ranges and other such activities should be available. I may sneak out and go fishing...
