So most of y'all know what i be already, so quick story, our company shut down last week, all the full timers and most of the admit put on ice, so i send my goodbye emails, get told ill still be working a few public jobs, this particular one, its actually our room so a bunch of gear in there i dont have to pack up and take home, but its ours, not a hotel conference room booked for the day.
So i get in 7ish, by 8 ive got maybe 12 of my 15 (class size capped at 18, need to be spaced 1.5m, ive got chairs set up to that effect) and i see this tradey whos from a site across the street, where theres some... 50 tradesmen working on two private new builds, hanging around our private and boomgated carpark. Anyhow hes hanging about for about 10 minutes on his phone most of the time but keeps looking in our direction, im like 'the fuck does this cunt want' but also dealing with class. Didnt think any more of it, dont know when they fucked off.
About an hour later i see my students looking at someone through the glass behind me and theres a knock on the door.
4 cops. The fucking tradey, who works on a site, thats on a public road, with more than 50 people working on it.... came across the street to a private carpark, to look in a window of a private tenant indoors, on an essential service, just to ring up and complain that people were breaking the curfew. Anyhow they pull me out of class for a few minutes, ask me a few questions, im aware of our requirements and exemptions so i let them know about that stuff, clearly everyone was spaced out correctly because they didnt say shit about that, and they left us alone and fucked off. Was half hoping they would shut us down so i can go home but that would shoah the rest of the jobs ive got booked which im fucking blessed to have at the moment...
Now not even this morning i read yet another 'you shouldnt bother wearing n95 masks, it wont do anything at all. totally. nothing. not. a. thing. we really need to get them, but you, great unwashed masses, you dont need them at all. so you shouldnt bother.
All four cops had n95 masks on. Its not a cool day outside. Those poor fucks wear stabvests etc, there is no way known theyre all willingly wearing those everywhere they go.
While the rest of us are being told dont use them they do nothing so dont bother, government workers are all clearly being told 'dont work without them' - so if they do nothing why are they being told to wear them?
Anyway... fun day...
