Public Service Announcement

To those individuals who continue to defy the practice of social distancing by having house parties, congregating on beaches and in parks, walking en masse down the street, escaping a quarantined state by traveling to a non-quarantined state, and other similar behavior, I bring you this public service announcement:

“COVID-19 kills, being bored at home does not.”

There is also some thought that stupidity kills. If true, there is not a vaccine for this, so please wash your hands, STAY HOME, and stay bored. If not for yourself, then for the health and well-being of everyone else on the planet.

PS: As of today, our offices have locked their doors and most employees, including moi, are now working from home. Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has issued a Stay-at-Home Order and all non-essential businesses will be closed until at least April 24th.

Gibbs the cat hails this order as a huge positive and the kids and I wish you all good health and happiness!

This post has been brought to you by bored people and Linda Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday. If you are wondering what One-Liner Wednesday is all about, CLICK HERE.

Linda G. Hill is the Queen of One-Liners and rules over her kingdom of followers. Check out today’s post and commit yourself to join the Queen’s one-liner army because there’s no fighting or blood, only comradery and fun with words.

    You said it. I really don’t care if someone is bored. Get over yourself, you know. It’s not that difficult to stay inside. Really.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      It’s been making me crazy. While we’re having daily policy changes, video meetings, ordering safety supplies, and trying to keep people safe…I see adults, who should have common sense, not taking this seriously at all.

      • Ally Bean says:

        Yes, and the flippant arrogant attitude of someone else is what might get me sick. So, thanks for nothing, boneheads.

      • bikerchick57 says:

        Yes, my roommate and I were just talking about Mr. Flippant Attitude last night. Actually, it was more like b*tching rather than talking, so I’ll end this comment here before it starts up again and I hurt myself with more face palms. 😉

  2. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻You are not the only one who goes crazy watching these ‘COVIDIOTS’ which is the new name for the ignorant and selfish who are endangering us all. As one of my readers said – even duct tape can’t fix stupid. 🙂

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I like that name…Covidiots. I try not to call people names, but some are being so careless with their behavior that it feels deserving.

  3. loisajay says:

    You can’t fix stupid. That rule more than applies here. Relieved you are working from home, Mary. Take care.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Stupid might be fixed with the people who end up sick because of their behavior, but only if they learn from mistakes.

  4. Dan Antion says:

    I was going to ask if you were home, when you mentioned that the kids were still sleeping. The number of people doing stupid things, saying stupid things and acting with no thought to the other inhabitants of this planet, just makes me sad. My serious pet peeve right now is the people who toss their used gloves on the grocery store parking lot and their used wipes in the cart they abandon next to my car.

  5. John Hric says:

    Now if we could just get some of the governors and mayors to read this announcement too. Sadly they are a big part of the problem. Not even they are unified and speaking with the same voice. And I should stop right there. I might just ruin both of our moods.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I understand John. I’m extremely relieved that our state is taking action and we don’t have a numbskull as Governor.

    • M-R says:

      I was watching Rachel on MSNBC and could scarcely believe what I was hearing re some governors’ responses. Are these blokes MAD ?!

      • bikerchick57 says:

        I cannot believe the idiotic behavior in this country by politicians and religious leaders over addressing the virus snd taking precautions. They set a bad and dangerous example for those that continue to bow to whatever comes out of their mouths. It’s disgusting.

      • M-R says:

        One can only wonder at the degree of their commitment to ‘the people’, M-J.

      • John Hric says:

        Hmmm could you be referring to the lt. gov. of Texas where he is looking for older folks to get the economy going and volunteer to die too ? Could it be that covid-19 causes madness in some politicians ? As Alice used to say in Wonderland Curiouser and Curiouser !

      • M-R says:

        I fancy one of the the three she was trying not to be rude about was Missouri ..?

  6. Laurie says:

    Even though our particular county in PA is not under a stay-at-home order, Bill and I are staying at home (except for trips to the grocery store and running in remote locations). Benji the dog is loving it too! 🙂

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Good for you, Laurie! Have fun with the remote running and enjoy your peaceful time with Bill and Benji!

  7. M-R says:

    Herd mentality – meaning, like, DUMB – is all that can be said for the rebellers ..

    • bikerchick57 says:

      You said it M-R. Do they truly believe that people are not dying? Maybe we need to rub their unprotected noses in a few coffins.

      • M-R says:

        Oh, I dunno: a few handrails on steps in the cities oughta do it ..

  8. John Holton says:

    I mean, really, how hard is it to stay home? I mean, sure, people have to go out and shop and I see people out walking (by themselves), but sending everyone home and telling them to isolate themselves for a couple of weeks doesn’t mean “let’s get together and par-tay!” I saw where Florida shut down Spring Break and told the kids to go home, and now a few of them have come down with it. Wonder how many others they’ll infect?

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I hope none of the spring breakers infect grandma or anyone who’s vulnerable. It’s not hard to stay home if you’re concerned about not only your own welfare, but the well-being of others. Those that continue to socialize at this point are self-absorbed and really dumb.

  9. I heard a very dumb story about a big wedding that had been scheduled for New York City, and the caterer couldn’t refund the money since he had bought the food, so the knucklehead people had the wedding for something like 1,000 people, and the cops immediately shut them down. It’s hard to tell who the biggest dopes were in that story, although I’m not voting for the cops to be the dumb ones in that scene–

    Our clinic closed for all but emergent calls and most of us are laid off. I spent five hours today trying to get unemployment benefits started-with no success. I’d like a shuttle ride for about five years. Maybe sleep through this and only age 5 mos. Maybe I should call Rod Serling…

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Either Rod Serling or a Star Trek captain or Dr. Who. Any one of them can help you with time travel, Cheryl.
      I’ve heard applying for unemployment is time consuming, so I’ll wish you success for tomorrow.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Lol, tis true Marian. Ziva lays on the other side of the bed at night and purrs loudly, but sometimes when I reach over to pet her, she lets me know I need to keep my distance. 😾 Thankfully, there is no blood letting involved.

  11. joey says:

    I am glad to be home safe with the option of working from home and resent having to go out in harm’s way so I really don’t understand people behaving like that. It must be a YOLO affliction — but it will harm others which is not cool, man, not cool.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      The YOLO people don’t seem to understand that death can be permanent to themselves and anyone they infect. Truly, it is not cool.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      My roomie and I were just saying that Cuomo should be in charge of the country. He would have shut down the entire country by now given how he’s been no nonsense in NY. Instead, we have the Idiot Village.

  12. I find it really hard some days not to consider the merit of Darwinism. Will we, just perhaps, find at the end of this, that the average IQ quotient of the country has actually improved?

    • bikerchick57 says:

      Well, over here there are still too many that don’t understand or believe the seriousness of the virus. Or those who listen to our leader’s silly ramblings and still hold church or keep their stores open. My fear is that it is not Darwinism, but that this pandemic is not being choosy in race, class or otherwise. I just keep praying for all of my friends (you included), that we all stay out of harm’s way.
