I'm a curmudgeonly hermit naturally; staying at home doesn't bother me at all. I have books galore, internet and phone to keep in touch with friends and family. The major impact to date is that I cannot shop, ergo, I am not earning any money.
But I am peeved at the rich and famous who complain about being "stuck" at home (in their mansions), without benefit of their make-up/hair people.
Just ONCE I'd like to read a story where one of these insufferables is continuing to PAY the hair and makeup people who cannot work!
If anybody sees a story like that, please let me know! It will restore my faith in mankind, LOL!!!
I am aware that many of these "rich and famous" are also contributing generously to food banks, to purchasing PPE for hospitals and other front line workers. This is a good thing.
But if I were wealthy, I'd still be paying my gardener (who cannot come to work because of stay at home), my Nanny (who can't get here because, even though she's live-in, was elsewhere when the order went into effect, so now she can't get here), my maid who can't get here, and all those others who depend on me for their survival.
BINGO! I'm so glad that this annoys at least one other person. These celebrities and sports "heroes" are pampered beyond belief, and they are fortunate to have the wealth that they have. They can't wait to self-promote any donation or kind deed. If I had that kind of wealth, I would never allow any publicity to be attached to the donation or deed.@panama18 wrote:
As for donations, they would be holding news conferences to announce that they gave a homeless person a dollar.
Costco is supposed to limit to 2 people now.@azncollege wrote:
It's annoying to see people bring their whole family to the grocery store. There's no need to bring your significant other and all your children out, especially when stores are limiting store capacity.
I have not seen any families with children or group shopping during my Pandemic food shopping excursions. Before that I would see large families along with grandparents shopping. Annoying but I guess to them it was a family outing and/or together time.
