    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. :bird:

    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 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.

    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.
