... where social distancing rules are not being followed!


We all need to remember these businesses, and how they put everyone in danger.

You're, expecting an extra layer of absolute, and false security no business or government can afford to provide.

I can offer no easy answer for those whom biology and demographics have placed "closer to the fringes" (and BTW, I'm one of them).

Reason -- not regulation -- will get most of us through this overhyped scare.

That's why some of these businesses are hiring more people. They have them walking through the store with a 6 foot long stick. If he measures the space between any two people and they're less than 6 feet apart, he's to call the police and have them arrested.

In other words...paranoia rules!

I know a feller that went to the Costco in Lexton the other day, and they were limiting the number of people that went into the store. So, they were all piled up outside waiting to get in....imagine that!

Does anyone, besides me, ever wonder how some folks would survive in a real emergency? Somehow, I don't think turley paper would be on my list of to things to gather up.

Hey gman, I went to the pharmacy the other day, and they did have in fact, red X's on the floor at the entrance at what appeared to be 6 ft. apart. But, I did not see the National Guard anywhere in sight.

I saw a younger pregnant lady in our store in Covington the other day, we were quite busy at the time, she was standing in line (roughly 15-18" from people in front of and in back of her)...to buy lottery and a pack of donuts!! I looked at her and shook my head!


One of our managers last week, at a store I was in, anytime he saw people standing close together in line, he would loudly announce to them that there was a 6ft social distancing order in effect in the state, if they didnt comply, they would not be served...get this, some of the people laughed and shook their head, one guy says "where do you want us to stand"...(Can the public really be this dumb? ) LOL


**and keep in mind, these people were not standing in line for groceries or medicine, they were in line to buy cigarettes, lottery, chips, soda, beer, snacks, etc!!

We got the order to put 6ft markers on our floor yesterday from the state, and actually the health dept told us, if people are not complying after being asked, we can contact police...point is, THIS IS SERIOUS, THESE IDIOTS ARE ENDANGERING OTHERS WITH THEIR BEHAVIOR, so that takes it to a whole other level.

We went to the first "senior shopping hour" at Walmart this morning. Every Tuesday from 6-7 AM. Pretty good turnout today but everybody acted decent. There were plenty of empty shelves but we found everything we needed and we didn't hoard anything.
As far as the 6 ft. markings, the pharmacy had a sign up showing 6 feet.
When all this is over and it's OK to touch people again, I might try to give the Walmart workers a big pat on the back for doing their best during all this

You're right gman, those people have worked their butt's off. I know a young man (my Grandson) that works for an independent grocery store here in town. He has been working a lot, under stressful circumstances but, went on without a complaint. I'm proud of him!

I have a sneaky feeling, this social distancing is here to stay.


I also wouldnt be surprised to see states make a bigger deal with the flu each year too, from now on, (closing down non-essential businesses and such), I think this may happen every year after we get thru this, (if society does come back from this....I still have my doubts about that).
