We're at the peak of a pandemic, and we are all working from home, and there is literally no good reason for a sizeable chunk of us to be forced back into the office, yet here we are, with the folks at the top thinking they're smarter than Anthony Fauci. No seriously, I did not make that up.
Fun Fact 1 - There has been a spike in Covid patients labeled as 'recovered' suffering from strokes. Yep. Permanent brain damage, in what was healthy young people just a month earlier. Fantastic.
Fun Fact 2 - Overweight people are disproportionately affected by Covid. Pretty cool since I'm overweight.
Fun Fact 3 - Men are affected at a higher rate too. I'm hitting it out of the park because I am a man. A fat man.
Fun Fact 4 - You don't have to be 60+ to end up with permanent organ or brain damage. Plenty of people in their 20s have been affected. And k–led.
Fun Fact 5 - Not a single person making decisions with my life, or yours, at the top of the company has a degree in biology or is a practicing doctor. Yet they think they can just figure it out, as they sit around their next round-table. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Fun Fact 6 - What has changed since the associate in Westminster was in the ICU? Nothing. Well actually things are exponentially worse with the death and infection rates both climbing. It's considerably worse than it was three weeks ago and will continue to get worse. ESPECIALLY IF WE ALL START WORKING IN ENCLOSED SPACES FOR NO REASON.
Fun Fact 7 - None of these facts are fun.
I have ZERO faith in anyone in leadership getting us back into the office safely, after seeing how much of a debacle the exodus was in getting us out. It was belly to back, and elbow to elbow, for hundreds of associates being corralled thru multiple doors, none of which would stay open on their own. For every person leaving the building, there was another coming back in for the second trip to haul their stuff back out again. I've seen mosh pits filled with drunk teenagers that had more order and cohesion. I had more close contact with people in 15 minutes than I had gone through in literally the entire year up until that point. DURING A PANDEMIC.
Most governors are recommending to keep working from home. Even Brian Kemp agrees with this, and he's a total id–t.
May God save us all.
