My MIL haranguing W to come visit and fireworks at 2:30pm. Great day
Does she know its...a pandemic. And she lives in one of the worst places in the country?
She’s an idiot so, no. She was like “well
Spirit has a new flight at a better time!” Um, ma’am, not comfortable flying on any airline right now and can’t imagine when SPIRIT will feel like a safe choice.
Pupdate that we put Lucy in the car to get away from fireworks and drove into a giant pop-up line of thunderstorms.
I feel like @Canaligator’s MIL’s encounters with reality are brief, sporadic, and frustrating for both parties.
I had been out of direct COVID care for three weeks. I had planned to surprise my dad with a distanced visit today. Yesterday my hospital saw fit to make me work the COVID floor by myself. I am so angry and disappointed.
I’m sorry, that blows.
I’m so sorry. That really sucks
I'm sorry. That sucks.
Oh, I'm so sorry. That sucks.
That's so shitty for multiple reasons @HBC . I'm sorry
This is so upsetting on multiple levels. I’m sorry, friend.
That is awful, I’m so sorry they did that.
Ugh, that is so awful I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry HBC
That truly sucks, HBC.
That’s really fucked up of them HBC. I’m sorry.
I got sent home from working one of my brewery jobs for running a fever.
I am not running a fever. They are using the surface temp readers and it’s an outdoor brewery, on a 96 degree day. The only time it read as a fever was right after I finished 10 mins in the direct sun setting up umbrellas and signs.
I sat inside for 3 mins, temp came back at 98.6. Cool.
Then they tested me again “to be sure” once I was back outside. Came back at 99. Which is NORMAL, non fever temperature for the human body.
I am not upset about the policy, they made the right call if they were actually concerned about me running a fever. I agree with it. I am frustrated that they don’t understand surface temperature readers and what constitutes a fever.
99 is not a fever! I say this as someone whose base temp is usually around 97.5.
That's annoying, but there will def be a learning curve for all this. They'll learn when they're out of staff and have to close for the day...
Oh for sure. I am just super annoyed that they don’t have a firm policy, don’t have a temp cutoff, and let me serve for 3 hours before finally making the call.
In most places here they are considering 99 a temp. It’s shitty, especially in FL.
But like... why
Are they testing throughout your shift?
Exactly. I’ve had this issue with temp taking before in my hospital system, so I can’t even imagine trying to explain it to a restaurant or bar.
No, he continued testing me because it was high (102.5) the first time he tested me, right after I’d been in direct sunlight for 10 mins. I hit a point where I was like, I don’t mind if you send me home, I support the policy and extra caution, but either send me home or stop taking my temperature. If I actually had a fever it wouldn’t have gone down by 4 degrees from sitting inside for 3 mins. No one else got tested past their first one.
They’re also not enforcing staff wearing masks other than the bartenders which I was annoyed with. The brewers, owners, and GM didn’t have them on.
This is the place I’m quitting once I can get on consistently with the brewery I trained at yesterday.
