Oh you're all definitely getting the 'vid.
« on: March 13, 2020, 08:37:35 AM »
What events or practices have you seen recently that made you think 'oh we're all getting the virus."?

I came into work today. A job where, every morning, people sit at a different desk and use different headsets and keyboards. On a big table in the middle were loads of open packets of Doritos and cakes and sweets and shit left over from yesterday. People were apparently going up and grabbing handfuls of snacks and sharing them and shit (I didn't see this i had the day off). During a global pandemic. 30 people eating from the same open bag of doritos. Fucked mate.

How about you lot?

I've been indoors for two weeks.  Outside is silent.  I heard two cars yesterday.  I think it was yesterday.

If I don't have any meetings or anything, I can sit and work in any one of about a dozen places around town. Chose one of our sister departments' premises this morning and sat with a colleague who often lets us share her office, only for her to inform us that she'd had to wipe down the whole room after another colleague sat there yesterday coughing all day saying she was sure it was nothing and she didn't need to go home even though she apparently has a second job where someone's been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

We're waiting for head office to give local bosses the directive to send staff home. As I am in middle management I might also get this power. I am really excited and also slightly worried that I might abuse it.

Remember doing history at school and looking at copies of those Bill of Mortality documents from 1665..? A-and after checking out that the plague had accounted to thousands of deaths in a week, everyone would laugh at the one fella who's cause of death was Lethargy? Yeah.... reckon that'll be me this time.

Awareness of how much I apparently touch my face.  I have discovered my vector.  Try to stop and the next minute I’ve tapped a pen against my teeth, touched my temple and rubbed my eye.  It’s going in that way and it knows it the bastard.

I was supposed to be going to a meeting in Zurich, followed by another in Como next week, then I was going to stay in Zurich over the weekend. Cancelled.

I was in a seminar yesterday when I suddenly became aware that I was touching my face. I then looked round the lecture theatre to see how many other people were doing the same and over the space of a few minutes it was probably about half the attendees.

It is impossible to stop touching one's face. We're all gonna die.

Maybe every time you feel like you want to touch your face, touch someone else's face instead. Tickle their ear lobe or slowly slide your pinky into that greasy bit of your ace next to the nostril.

Depends what the questions are, if they're questions like what am I supposed to do without hand sanitiser and are there special protocols for dealing with clients who may be infected, I think they should have answers but at the end of the day, if you're caring for the vulnerable and you're the last line of defence, I suppose, the "right" thing to do is to keep caring for them the best way you can and pray.  Fuck the bosses though.

One brightish thing seems to be that babies and young children appear to become less ill with this thing, so hopefully, your little boy will be OK.  I very much hope that.

Yep pretty much the questions I'm asking. Feels like they're not taking it seriously.
Was just watching something on the BBC at care homes and such, advising to cut back on visitors and such.

My boy, fingers crossed seems fine, bouncing and being a short bundle of energy.

As for the last line of defence, I get that - but I feel like I'm gambling my own health and my clients health.

Crazy times.

do you think burying your face in someone's arse cleft and snogging the living fuck out of it is a transmission risk?

Crazy times indeed.  Fuck knows what the answer is, my go-to when I'm in doubt is hold fast to that which is good and let the cards fall where they will. I don't know what else to say.  Or maybe do what poo suggests.  Could work.

Came into work this morning and there was an officer stationed in the entrance directing everyone into a side room with sinks and handwash, so we have to wash our hands before we go any further in now. I imagine that's going to be the case for the forseeable, which is fair enough as if it gets in it'll spread like mad. I still think it's inevitable though, there's just too much movement of people involved.

On another positive note, if I was a criminal, right now, I'd be planning my worst outrage ever.  You could nick anything and get away with it.  Always see opportunity in adversity, that's what the borises chant.  Let's have some of theirs then.  And let it be mighty stuff.

I saw something worrying in a BBC article about an mp saying something about the importance of being able to create new laws after the cobra meeting, it's quite chilling thinking about what draconian stuff might be rammed through under the guise of national emergency.

They've been handed a way to crush protests for a start.

I’ve been wanking off strangers on crowded tube trains all week and suddenly it dawned on me this morning that using hand sanitiser as lubrication probably isn’t enough of a precautionary measure.

Every second cunt is coughing into the air, onto each other, onto me, or into their hands. In twent-ty-twent-ty, adults coughing directly into their hands before they push open doors or press stop buttons on the bus. Bloke on my train the other day was in his nose up to the second knuckle for an hour, digging for gold on the East Midlands line. I was moderately aware of people being gross but now it's overwhelming.

We're all fucked and frankly everyone but me (bastion of cleanliness and thoughtfulness) deserves it.

Let's not forget that the vast majority of people have practically zero concern for their health at the best of times - smoking, eating and drinking too much, no exercise whatsoever etc.
