Remember when this was all a New York problem and you could point and laugh?  Wasn't that great?  You were feeling so good.

yakmans_dad: We just had a workman in our house for 2 hours.  My wife and I were amply masked. He was glaringly unmasked. Worse: he was a huge, heavy-set man who wheezed like a steam train. I tried to keep the rooms well-ventilated but he either misunderstood my intentions or was daring me about whatever it is anti-mask people imagine they're up to.

What a weird world we live in. Nobody stranger than people.


Dude, that's your house.  Call his boss and/or give him the boot.

Weird. I had a cable guy in yesterday. Masked up, kept six feet distance, even had booties over his shoes, which is probably more about people's rugs and carpets than Covid. Meeting with architect and contractor tomorrow, they've asked for an outside meeting on the porch. They will also be masked up.

Fark 'em.  If they want to be stupid, they can all die.  Just don't leave the state.

The real tragedy here is that fewer Florida men means less Florida Man.

Seriously, I'm not letting anyone I don't know in my house without a mask.

Having a guy fix the dryer on Thursday and they made a point to tell me he would be masked and gloved up and they asked if I could too and I told them it was not an issue.

We're in the midst of a spasm of long-deferred house maintenance. My naive understanding is that these guys are healthier than the general population. Check back with me in a month.


Granted, we haven't reached the point where the guys doing the work are actually in the house, but the contractor is very concerned about Covid, which is actually making our time frame longer, since he's trying to avoid multiple crews (electric, plumbing, carpentry, etc.) working in the house on the same days. Hopefully his influence trickles down to the work crews.
