My out of touch , Broke the spool on a 5000# winch so I called the manufacture and they are now working from home and to please pick the options . So I left information and my number for them to call me back so I could get this running as quick as possible . I also replied by EMAIL with a photo , the EMAIL failed twice and I never got a response on the phone . That was last week , tried the EMAIL again and this time received a reply . Saying they need information of vehicle purchase date blah blah blah ..... who gives a F- - - at this point . I don't give a crap any longer , just get me the F- - - - - - part , I'm not working from home so I don't have all day to play EMAIL tag . So I reply and tell them I don't care about warranty and left them my number so we can figure out the quickest way of getting it up here . (took me an hour last time out to move 20 feet to solid footing) Their EMAIL reply was please fill out the on line order . I'm about ready to blow a F - - - - - - gasket now .
Thank you very much for the convenience of ordering on line because I have now realized that this pissed off dude doesn't want to talk to your stupid lazy ass sitting at home . Get a job or get fired .
Social distancing my ass , some of these people have just checked out . What part of this country is gonna actually do the work if everybody is at home ? Might as well just start ordering directly from china . Get rid of the middle man sitting at home . I would be more than pissed off to pay for over night to get that F- - - - - - - part here before Friday . I am working one of my businesses and busy is great , I know how to use a #2 shovel the other job I'm still waiting for my license from the state that is also working from home so says their web sight .
Its not a covid epidemic is a stupid epidemic .

Are you people ready to take back our normal yet?
It's not gonna be back to the way things were before this , the media and those that hate their jobs will make sure of it . Why should any of these people go back to work ?

Come out in the world and find out or stay under the rock and think you know why. Cross the street and take a chance of getting hit by a car or stay on your block for the rest of your life. What do you pick. Can't stay home waiting for a cure or down to zero. Not feasible. Ive worked the whole time and not even worried. If it wasn't an election year we wouldn't hear anymore about it. Fear and control.

This is the frustrating thing, I know alot of really smart people that simply refuse to see that this is political.
That's hard to cope with.

I'm not sure if you're directing the first sentence at me? or just a general reply? If the former, I've been working, covering a large territory in the medical field the entire time. I'm not presuming to have any answers about the dilemma i posted, but being near the front line of this thing and working directly with those who are treating the patients hasn't provided any concrete answers. I was at a hospital on wednesday morning this week that has 200 covid patients and the respiratory doctors were having this very discussion. We have no choice but to get life back to "normal" but with some sensible cautions. These continued lock downs after the curve has flattened, is exactly as you say, imo.

Maybe try both?

Get on with life.
Have some empathy.

Most of our rural area is still at work, yet practicing sensible caution. I feel for those who suffer from overkill cautionbut especially empathize with those who have buried or been separated from loved ones as a direct result of the virus.

Yes, there’s political exploitation and damage.

That does not mean it’s all bullshit.

There are many examples of ignorant defiance that came back to bite large groups with large outbreaks and death.

If you’re like me and naturally live a social distanced life by the grace of circumstances, be grateful you’re not living among those who can’t escape many issues that hit dense populations hard.

Empathy ? you have no idea what people are doing to benefit themselves over this situation in populated areas . I'm seeing both sides and one side is just pillaging , the other side has to work .

How is that a conflict with empathy?

You can empathize with the workers and the direct victims and still despise those that take advantage.
Bad people being bad people doesn’t mean there’s no virus causing death and setbacks.

Oh I do not doubt that there is a man created illness. Problem is that I strongly suspect the "experts" have intentionally discouraged treatments that were known to have positive effects and recommended treatments with little to no positive result history. Much like a magician distracts your attention while the slight of hand easily deceives you.
Something is just not right with any of this.

A few weeks ago we went to church (I will admit that it was to make a statement because I've seen through this hoax all along), but anyway the Pastor doesn't say "Good to see you" or anything like that. No, he instead says "This is closed to the public for a reason". Fast forward to now, everything in town is open....except for some of the churches including ours. Our Pastor brags about how often he eats out at the local restaurant (like he's a brave rebel) but somehow Church is dangerous? C'mon!

Anyway, Friday we were planning for my father's funeral and Pastor is emphasizing about how we must limit who can come to keep it safe. So I suggested that we have the service at the grocery store (because evidently that must be safe because there's never been any concern about crowds there). Got a laugh out of everyone...except the Pastor. He's a good man, but he's not a leader.


(Sorry, I simply couldn't tell this story without the funeral info for context. Please don't derail thread with condolences. Thanks)
