My son had never been busier helping his customers set up IT systems for remote working.bimboman wrote: ↑Wed Jan 27, 2021 2:11 pmovalball wrote: ↑Wed Jan 27, 2021 1:32 pmWell, they are all in lockdown now - but as you must know, Lockdown doesn't mean that most of them aren't still working. Those that could, started working from home before the 1st lockdown was announced.bimboman wrote: ↑Wed Jan 27, 2021 1:02 pmovalball wrote: ↑Wed Jan 27, 2021 11:43 am
Do you ever stop being a total arse. The people bringing us things were the younger members of our family - some of whom also volunteered to be community helpers to assist others in need.
And, whilst there's nothing wrong with being Middle Class, ours is mostly a Working Class family - several of whom work in the NHS.
“Most of my extended family” , jeez
As I said middle class version of sacrifice. I’m amazed they had the foresight to work from home in the week between the serious warnings and the law changes.
Most people of course wouldn’t have been allowed such a luxury.
But yes, some people have jobs that cannot be done from home - does that mean those that can should feel guilty.
My family have been extremely fortunate - until recently we'd not had anyone catch the virus. But now one of my nephews, and his wife, have it - and they are not doing too well.
Yeah, I don’t believe you. We were told to isolate on the 17th of March , Liverpool played in front of a full house on March the 11th, no one in Feb was isolating or setting up “home work stations” before that Italy confirmed its first 2 deaths on Feb 22nd.
Good for you and that amazing foresight though.
