Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
Yesterday, a week after my mom passed to the immortal realm of the gods, my company made the difficult, yet wise decision to close down temporarily at the end of the day for the next two and a half weeks. Today I'm waiting to hear from our IT dept as to whether my work laptop can vpn effectively from home and whether my boss even wants me to keep working on my projects or if I should just hit the pause button on my job until this all dies down.
Depending on those two conversations, I'm either going to be lucky enough to work from my home office and keep a much needed paycheck coming in or I'll be joining many of you in the unemployment line and figuring out which bills I can defer this month (and maybe next).
What an insane time we are going through.
PS: if you're one of the people who hoard toilet paper, food, belittle essential workers, ignore social distancing measures, or think old people should die to save the economy, go fuck yourself.
