There are many people walking around in stores with entitlement issues, rage disorders, and low impulse control. That's why working retail is such a horrible job. The average customer doesn't usually see it, though, unless they accidentally bump into the crazy person, or take the last rotisserie chicken. The issue of mask wearing seems to have triggered every dysfunction these dysfunctional people have. I'm damned if I see why.

Not to go too easy on these fools, but the stress of this situation is causing all kinds of extreme reactions, I'm sure.  People have had all types of their regular support systems crippled, or stripped away altogether.  I've seen it happening in several other contexts, people who need help having it taken away.

People aren't taking medications because they're laid off and don't have insurance.  Trying to get help from the government with that right now is almost as fruitless as getting someone on the phone when there's a problem drawing your unemployment.

Speaking of which, I know people who didn't receive any unemployment for 6-8 weeks.  That's long enough to ruin most Americans.  And, again, good luck getting in touch with anyone who can tell you why that's happening, or help to correct it.  And now it seems most of it will be taken away.

And almost anyone who meets with any kind of support group, formal or informal, has probably lost that.

I think many people are being overwhelmed by circumstances, and there's no end in sight.  There's so much desire to see a return to normalcy that I'm sure there are a lot of people acting out in irrational ways.

When 'acting out' risks other people's lives, they can fark off.

Oh, China? Middle-aged woman? Oh, yeah, you best watch yourself, son, for they can be terrifying.

There is an idiom from The Records of the Grand Historian that goes: 寡廉鮮恥, "Little moderation, little shame". I think it's neat because in Japanese, the first two characters are pronounced as:

"Karen"

A little joke of history.

This is going to escalate into mass shootings.  Just give it a little more time.

You also will get this.  We all will.  Covidiots indeed, all of you.

Kind of surprised nobody has really snapped. I suspect the pressure went up another notch yesterday though.

A few disgruntled folks shooting up their coworkers. Murder-suicides (at least in my area). Some protest shootings. South Chicago still a shiat show, probably tales the cake.

We solved school shootings for the time being.

Everywhere should have this reaction. If everywhere had had this reaction from the beginning, this plague would have already been ended.

Mexico on the fast track.

Wish we knew actual case counts; deaths is probably a good measurement.

AZ has had a 12% increase in deaths over the same period in 2019. Lots of confirmed cases, probably many, many more unconfirmed. Death rate on confirmed cases is about 2% here. A recent bad flu season saw an 8% increase in deaths from the prior year.

When meds are suddenly cut off the ability to handle "Poor impulse control" goes right out the window.  There is no logic involved, it's a short cut to irrational behavior and terrifying consequences.

I heard Chinese pepper spray is way spicier than American pepper spray.

Well it's China, so a few people ate probably about to get some new kidneys and a new liver.

Please see my first sentence.  The way we interact online has helped us forget that there's a difference between understanding a thing and condoning it. If I say "Hinkley shot the president because he was trying to impress Jodie Foster", that doesn't mean that I think the shooting was justified
