That was another rough work-week. Despite us now having plenty of toilet paper, we had no eggs from Thursday through Sunday, so THAT was fun! And if I hadn’t noticed the count was wrong on my way out the door on Thursday, we’d probably still have none ergh. Not even my damn department and people not doing their job properly.
I can do my job a lot more effectively though. I found out that we can donate non-perishable products that are up to 12-weeks out of date, and we can also donate perishable products that are out of date on that day so long as we snap-freeze them, so that will get our donation rates up from now on. At the moment our donation rate is around 15% and we want to get it up to 60%. It just sucks I’m not in the fresh department, so unless I notice it when I help them out on Thursdays, it all probably just gets thrown out ergh. I just hate lazy people. I went all sassy a few times last week because it’s obvious someone (or a few people) still aren’t rotating stock properly ^rolls eyes^. I think I’m doing pretty well in my department though. I just dread when I have to check the dates on all the vitamins cos some of them sit there for months and certainly don’t get rotated by nightfill. Anyway. There could have been more abuse about not having eggs, wheras I just had a few disgruntled customers. As for any form of baking, that is still an absolute joke lol. There’s still a 1-per-person limit on toilet paper and paper towel, even though we now have pallets of the stuff. We really need pallets of flour and eggs now. There’s always something.
We now all wear bright yellow vests over our uniforms that warn customers about social distancing. We don’t have to wear masks, although a few of us do. I think they would just annoy me. The vest is already making me hotter even though it’s thin material.
We had zero new cases in my state yesterday, so that’s good news, but out premier certainly isn’t letting loose any laws just yet. New Zealand is relaxing to Level 3 (which is what we are) so that means construction and a few other industries can return to work. That’s never stopped here. I hear construction each morning since this all started.
I am just thankful I’m not American LOL soz guys. That is a dig at whatever else their president spits out each day, obviously not the tragic deaths going on, especially in NYC. And people protesting in Ohio? Did I see those images correctly? Enjoy your Co-Vid guys! Fuck me. Yeah think what you want about the conspiracies but if people weren’t actually dying from this shit, then I guess you could take it more lightly, but they are. I saw one comment on here today about how the people who die have one foot in the grave anyway. Remind me not to add that person to my bookmarks. I want life to return to normal as much as the next person. I guess my state and country will look at places that are relaxing their laws early and see what the curve does. ^shrugs^
Of course, now I see this on my feed.
I’m stunned at Virgin Australia’s “collapse”. I might just be ignorant but I don’t understand how a company can be that far in debt, given that whenever I looked at their flights, their prices were at least $200+ for a one-way ticket to Sydney LOL. “Tell him he’s dreamin’!” Where the fuck was all that money going? Maybe that’s why they’ve “collapsed”? I mean I always went with the $40 Tiger ticket over the $200 Virgin. And Tiger were bought out by Virgin so I guess they’ll be gone too. I keep inverting it because it’s voluntary administration and they are holding out for a bail-out. I hear the latest is that a Chinese airline is interested LOL Yay! Fun times. If Qantas get the monopoly here, I guess I won’t be flying anywhere ever again, domestically at least!
I haven’t been doing anything exciting. I mean, I don’t do anything exciting even when there ISN’T a worldwide pandemic :P
It is cool reading everyone’s diaries now though because we are all going through the same thing with different circumstances, and that is very rare.
This mural appeared in Melbourne which is pretty cool!
I finished my jigsaw. It’s taken me around two weeks.
Here is a timelapse, since I’ve had nothing better to do besides watch terrible reality TV (the latest being “Too Hot To Handle”)
I got frustrated even more than I already was at this point lol
And I’ve just started colouring it in
