    I drove past the local koi carp yesterday and thought to myself that I'm low on fish food. Just watched Boris and quickly ordered some to be delivered online. Hope it arrives.

    What is exactly essential work? I cannot work from home...My toolbox won't reach.
    Just read my company e-mails..Nursing director..loves his own yap!
    Basically copying what the Government has said..word for word.
    Nothing about the risk to all who work in these places, all about residents care blah feckin blah!
    They're minging feckers at the best of times and the management team are pretty feckin useless ALL of the time.
    What the silly tw@t does'nt realise is this, one confirmed case and it's doomsday for the rest of us.

    You do know i'm dealing with a 32 bed
    all male rehabilitation hospital?
    Well you do now.....
    All residents are section 17 under the mental health act and have free roam inside the hospital.
    They have no idea about 2 metre social distancing.
    Nor any concept of danger or reality for that matter.
    ...but you're right, I should man up, but I don't think my boyfriend would
    like it if i stopped being a raging poof.:D

    Well I'm glad I went to Screwfix yesterday and bought a set of drain rods, at £25 I saved myself a call out. So I would suggest DIY stores are essential.

    You did say when I asked last week that you worked with dribblies. You're a better man than me, I couldn't do that.
    Respect!

    Med on radio showing how the math works. I can't explain but one person infects 2.5 others (no smart ass comments thanks) it goes into hundreds very quickly, as you can see in London and New York.

    Scary multipliers today in New York I heard.

    I'm sure Jaws will explain.

    Nothing smart ass, the 2.5 is prolly just an average like the wife and 2.4 kids that is often quoted.

    As for New York, yep, scary. Especially when Mrs P is there, albeit confined to the hotel.

    Well after the first shift at work after the lockdown and only go out if necessary, can someone explain why we were so busy? Some people came in just for a look around, and how can a fluffy cushion be essential.

    most people stood where asked to and accepted why we were taking card payments only, others did nothing but complain :bash:

    Security man in hospital spat at when he told people only one person allowed in at a time, more than once I gather. I think it was the maternity hospital.
