I’m sick of all these American talking heads on CNN with stacks of reading behind them, and it’s all Nixon and Frederick Douglass biographies. I’d rock on there with rows of vintage Penthouse and Meximum Rock n Roll.

Sigh.

This whole lockdown process gave us the chance to take the foot off the pedal, as it were, and step back and re-evaluate how we live our lives. Slow down, work from home, be more considerate to others, save civilisation as we know it etc.

What decision did we arrive at? Let's be bigger fuckin' tools than ever! Yay!!!
Who is this “us”? You make it sound like the whole thing was a retreat for everyone. Lucky you.

Coming close to a month anniversary of trying twice a week to talk to [phone company] so my folks can get enough internet to see their grandson. Good steady supply of staff available to ask me the same question every few days though.

The self service checkouts in Tesco Express now have a video monitor, probably a Covid-19 thing. It looks like there is some AR thing going on because although the man on the video screen was wearing my clothes he looked like some unkempt middle-aged drunk who lives in a bedsit and has multiple morbidity issues.

Is there a way to put the cans in front of the camera when you are checking out

are you actually talking to them? or an online bot?

Its been a mix of both. Most of the first responses are automated, you send a second response and it gets queued, 6 days later a person follows up and says 'how can I help you', you re-explain the problem and they dissapear. At this point all I'm asking is if they can set aside some time to talk to me.

Part of me want to start tweeting the shareholders/upper echelons.
