Remember the fellow who put 'covid' in air quotes when asked about a co-worker who died from it?
And, do you remember how I told you all (probably multiple times) that I can be a pretty oblivious person? It's worse now. My life has been changed at work by podcasts. I plug something in and I listen and I work.
Anyways, on break, I became aware of some chatter. Two people who came to work were shipped out for covid tests. They haven't come back to work. They were told to get tested or to take the next two weeks off. One of them, ironically, is 'Air Quotes'.
That's certainly a change from when I was sick, and was handed a document I was supposed to sign (but didn't) for missing two days of work, a violation of the attendance policy.
I commented about that change to the person talking. "Something's up," I said. "Are there people missing from work?"
She looked at me as if I were stupid. "Yeah, that whole back corner..." gesturing.
I thought they'd all taken a long weekend.
Tim and I have appointments for boosters this week.
