How is COVID-19 affecting your business or work ?
« on: March 17, 2020, 08:18:34 am »
I sell online and sales are sluggish right now, this is usually my busy time with folks
getting their taxes back. I don't have much overhead so I will be ok for awhile.

Best wishes to Both of you.

I fear a lot of people will end up hurt over this, I just hope not too badly.

Your state and mine will take a shellacking for sure. Just went up to my little tavern and wished everyone well and of course all the TV's were turned to Trump's bullsht presser__the one where Mike Pence asked all the contractors to donate their extra face.dust masks to the local clinics and hospitals.

Trump's long press conferences are designed to pump up the DOW and it works, while they were blathering it went up nearly 700 pts but then started to fall when it ended.

That tavern will shut the doors at 5pm today and open back up whenever our governor sounds the all clear or a judge steps in which is likely.

The crew there will be without any real pay and zero tips for two weeks and will fall behind in their obligations so we all chipped in what we could to help them survive.

The nearby nail salon staffed by Asians will remain open__God forbid a woman couldn't get her nails done.

Dr Fauci called on young people to text and/or call elderly shut ins as a way to keep them socially active.

Some guy at the bar said that the people who received a flu or pneumonia shot are the most at risk because they are the targets of the Chinese bio attack.  I asked him if his screen name was BarnKKKat.

LOL

I got mine back in December and my wife just got hers today because the Doc called and told her to.

Agree with the rest too

Thanks to your posting that I mentioned it to a few people I know and we've taken up a collection plate.

I'm really glad to hear that Pete.

It's been pretty crazy up here, no one really knows what to do, what's coming or where we are for that matter.
Just living a day at a time and it's driving everyone nuts!

Thanks and you stay safe too!

My husband's business is still open and they are doing okay. Not as busy as they could be but still okay.
You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
