Mrs. Ha is back to work, she picked a bad time to get off disability and return to the grocery store. She worked a week when it was crazier (about two weeks ago), put in for a week of using her vacation, then went back and it's better. The managers are being supportive, and even letting them have water at the register.
She even got a fifty cents an hour raise!
The supermarket chain headquartered in Rochester is supposedly giving a $2 an hour raise.
Fifty cents an hour more to work a job with a lot of potential exposure to coronavirus. Ain't capitalism grand?
She's been kicking herself that she didn't find something else while she was on disability.
I've been WFH since July, with trips back to the corporate campus a few times a week. Sometimes you need to work on a real printer.
That shut down this week, but somehow our demo room is open. I may get back there.
In February I went to a customer site in Plano. I was waiting at the DFW baggage claim, called another guy from Rochester who went down a day early, only to be told the problem was fixed. I had three days of trying to look busy and seeing some of Dallas.
This was when coronavirus was bubbling up, and I even saw a few masked people going through O'Hare, DFW and Dulles.
I was able to bring a big ass PC home with me, and I should be able to load our sw on it and set up a printer emulator. That should help with my workflow.
Twenty_three_year_old has been off a few weeks, they cut hours at the JCC, then they closed it. They're paying her until the 27th, after that, who knows?
We've had a full house for coming up on three weeks. RIT's Spring Break began and eighteen_year+old and her boyfriend came home, for most nights. Then Spring Break had an extra week added. Then they were told the dorms needed to be cleared out. Eighteen_year_old is bummed, she had roommate trouble and ended up with her own room.
Tentatively he's going back April 5th, but we will see.
He's a good guest, he has a Costco membership, but sometimes he leaves the toilet seat up. At least I'm not quite as outnumbered.
