It’s funny cause it’s true, I did that!
Well i was a big Sister and I did that and worse. I was only two when he was born but I grabbed his little Winkie dink and stretched it. Mum heard his little strangled baby cry and took me away from him. I betcha anything he secretly thanked me later in life.
@Bubby1 There are always outliers.
I know I was naughty. But anyone else picked on him. Look out!!! He did get me back later in life by making me jump off the roof onto a mattress with an umbrella. " The Mary Poppins game".
I grew up with the threat of nuclear war, acid rain, tainted Tylenol, the threat of cholesterol, and a whole host of strangely-garbed horsemen of the apocalypse. Over the years the number of scenarios being hawked by end-of-the-worlders has only grown larger. Just a list of the various doomsday situations over the last twenty years or so would fill a nice essay in itself. Y2K, anthrax, cell phone radiation, swine flu, bird flu, SARS, hormone replacements, transfats, and even net neutrality have been the proposed agents by which millions will soon die . Indeed, every potential snowfall is announced as “Snowmageddon” before it happens.
This is an entertaining description of the ‘Genesis Rock’.

Wow Michael, you look super protected =). That is awesome =).
All for show. Current policy for self checkout attendant is mask and/or shield. Weeks ago I was told that a stick was mandatory for accessing the attendant’s menu on the machines. Yet, I’m the only attendant with a stick. Without a stick you’re supposed to ask customers to ‘step away from the machine’, but I am aware of only one other attendant who does so. I seldom wear the mask when I’m wearing the shield.
I think my real protection are my ‘active counter-measures’. Those are: quinine, zinc supplements and inhaling camphor vapor frequently during each shift. I still use the shield and occasionally the mask to avoid causing problems and getting myself fired for non-compliance. Wearing the mask makes my nose run a lot so I’m happy to wear the shield as an alternative if I’m required to use one or the other.
I don’t know Mike, I think Wally World has a greater obligation to it’s “partners”. They had protection figured out better in 2001.
I think Wally World needs to step up the game and give you guys at least this level of protection since they seem to be the main supplier of goods during the COVID Apocalypse. And you have to deal with the filthy disease ridden public. I mean you guys gotta stay open till the end or it’s gonna be cannibalism and Mad Max shit all up in here.
