    Well, then everything I ever thought about him was true.

    I’ve been twice in the last two months. Once with kid, we were two of four people in a theater that seats 120.

    The other time we took the entire house: 4 adults and 8 kids. We were able to rent an entire private showing for $100, cheaper than buying individual tickets

    And if you go to a weekday noon matinee, that's the kind of experience you should expect. Put your mask on. No reason to avoid it.

    Dear people who bristle when I try to gently explain that I can't just pop in for whatever reason they think they need my carcass right there in front of them and vice versa,

    I try to not mention that I am sheltering in place until you or someome like you insists on me coming in, you coming to me, and so on. Then I try to couch it in terms that I need to limit contact. When you don't get it, I tell you I am sheltering in place. My mother is with me, she's 80, I am immunocompromised. Guess what? There is a middle ground where I respect your choices about how you want to conduct yourself and you respect mine. If you don't want the work, just say no. Don't try to wear me down so I will do things on your terms and only your terms.

    Have you noticed I'm one of those people who does not raise her voice when she is angry? Have you noticed that I prefer to not waste your time or mine? Probably not.

    What you don't understand is that when you make me do multiple (as in two days, hours of my time, and a total of sixteen) phone calls and I call someone else and they act like it's no big deal, then give me a date, time, and price to do the job and I can go about my day being a bad influence for a living, guess who gets my business?

    So, those statements are false? So 217,000 people have not died? So the economy isn't in the shitter? Good to know.

    Your risk assessment and Stain's is different than mine.

    That's what this whole stupid thing is about, and then that other people can't accept it.

    Regardless of where they are now, if/when they get worse in 2021 and beyond, THAT will be blamed on this administration.

    Just as the GOP blamed the 2008 recession on Democrats pressuring banks to make mortgages easier for low-income people, and they blamed Obama for <2 percent growth numbers.

    Anything good that happens . . . my guy did it! Anything bad . . . my guy inherited it! Every time.

    The President of the United State's answer to maybe the worst catastrophe in my lifetime was to say that the virus would simply disappear... and h0ld a SuperSspreader event.

    There's no frigging "both sides" here. GTFO of here.
