    Then things like this happen. Some people discovered a long time ago that if they throw a big enough tantrum, that stores will eventually cave and give them what they want just to shut them up. https://www.insider.com/the-grocery-store-employee-was-suspended-for-face-mask-altercation-2020-7

    Our local grocery stores have all been doing this for months...

    It's almost like having heath insurance tied to having and keeping a FT job is a bad idea and we should come up with a different system...

    So if the parents disagree with sending their kids back to school they should just... find new parents?

    So when a crisis hit they decided to do their job and actually be leaders? And comparing this to them "allowing" the protests to happen. I don't think they had much of a choice there. They attempted to control and contain them as much as they could but there was no way they were going to stop them from happening. It'd be like stopping an ocean wave from hitting the shore.

    I just read this on FB. What I read was longer but this is the start of it.

    Do you scream at them because they make you wear a seat belt or else you will be ticketed? How about the fact that they make you wear a shirt and shoes into a store or else you can't shop there? Are they being bullies then? Are you upset that they bullied people that smoke to smoke outdoors only?

    It's possible to get chicken pox twice and we have a vaccine for that now. But most people don't. Could be the same thing here. I've heard of people getting covid twice but I don't think it's that common.

    Gas stations would be screwed. They are essential so they'd have to stay open for all the people still going to work/making deliveries/etc... Yet they make very little money on the actual sale of gas. They get by mostly on the sale of the stuff inside the store. They don't have websites, curbside pickup or instacart delivery services.

    I remember when I was in HS there were a lot of days I would have zero homework. I got mostly B's and C's so 20 minutes of homework sounds about right. I was there for about 6.5 hours and I'd say at least 50% of it was filled with stuff like lunch, gym class, passing periods, sitting in class taking attendance or in some elective class like shop or keyboarding (early 90's) or a computer class where there was little to no homework. The other 50% was sitting in a class listening to the teacher and learning/memorizing a few things long enough to pass the test and them forgetting them later on. Now in the real world my job is literally pass/fail. Either I do my job correctly or I don't have a job anymore. If I have questions or don't know how to do something I "cheat" by asking someone else for help or looking up a solution online.

    Considering the complete lack of leadership in this country, are you really surprised?

    Also what do you do with the special needs kids that are highly unlikely to wear a mask or keep it on all day?

    I'm the exact opposite. I've never owned a pickup and can't imagine the need for one. I had a Suburban for many years and just recently went down to a Chevy Traverse. It's much more common for me to haul people/kids/dogs than it is for me to haul mulch, plywood or trailers. And I can fit 8 people in there. Even though I do own a 5th wheel its only been towed 3 times since I've owned it and currently sits on a permanent site. It went from the dealer to our first CG (dealer towed it), then a year later it went to a second CG (CG owner towed it for us) then finally to it's current place (we just hired a guy to tow it for us). We rent a u-haul trailer to tow our golf cart back and forth at the beginning and end of each season but the Traverse handles that just fine.
