I work with a far-right wing-conspiracy theorist: Ms. Loud. I think she's loud because she wants to make sure we've heard her. I've written about her before. Nice, but fruitier than a nut cake.😮
Honestly, that woman never stops talking. And she is never ever wrong.
This is how I get most of my critical work done before lunch, because I hunker down and do my thing so I don't get dragged into the conversation. By the afternoon I guess she's said all she needs to say, One of my co-workers was telling me about a documentary she recommended which contained nearly every conspiracy theory known to man. Well, it ought to, it's 11 hours long! I'm gonna pass, thank you very much.
She wears a mask at work only when necessary, so when she comes up to me I put mine on. When she's not at work she never wears one, even in stores. Has vowed to leave a store that enforces the wearing of a mask ~ I thought they all required it, but as in most retail establishments, they are loath to kick out paying customers, so many don't enforce it. She also attends one of those "mega churches" that opened up at the beginning of June. No masks. Not much social distancing. Over a thousand people there for services. If she manages to escape contracting the virus, I will be surprised.
I had mentioned before that one of our hygienists has been out of work for a month. After all the tests she's had done, there's no real diagnosis. A UTI, a sinus infection, an adjustment to her blood pressure medication. It's obvious to me that she is scared to come back to work, but doesn't want to retire because then she'd have to be home with her husband all day. Our OM (office manager) is giving her a deadline now for next week. After which she will have to admit she can't do it anymore and retire or job share with one of our other hygienists who wants to retire, but will job share with her for a year and then retire. It is a mess. Hiring a temp is so expensive that the OM has had enough of that, and wants her to make a decision. We will see how that goes.
So as you can see there's enough drama at work, which probably explains why I can't stand reality tv.
Picked another ripe tomato yesterday, and the plants are loaded! Right now I eat them as soon as they are ripe enough to pick (of course, that's a stupid thing to write, huh) no sharing yet, but I will be handing out a few to others who shared with me in previous years.
My church is finally opening this week, and I am reserved for a spot. So far there are only 4 of us signed up out of 44. The service on Saturday has never been that heavily attended, there were times when I was the only person. Sunday services won't start until July 5.
With the slow re-opening of businesses I don't have much going on except for work and home! I hope all of you enjoy your weekend⭐
