Meanwhile, with this total Pandemic & total lockdown in NJ & most of the rest of this country...

I still see about the same amount of traffic going back & forth on the road in front of my house. It's a rural road with a speed limit of 25 but apparently people are still going out and about.

Then I go to the grocery store today & the place was mobbed with guess this, mostly elderly people in their 70's plus waddling about. No wonder those old fucks are catching this sickness like mad. I had my mask on and gloves and got what I needed, (eggs, milk, bread, cheese, etc.)

If I was smart I probably would hunker down & live on canned food for the next month or so but something tells me it will be inevitable that I catch the virus anyway. Two people in my house are still working with jobs deemed "essential" so even when I stay at home I'm still reasonably confident that they'll bring it home.

Thoughts?

My grocery store has special hours for seniors, pregnant women, and people with "conditions." Early AM when it's cleanest, before the "youngins" arrive.

Lots of others have done it too.

I recommend telling your grocery store to get with the program.

P.S. And when I go into my contractor job (yes it's exempt) traffic feels like it's a Saturday morning. Not experiencing the world you are, and I don't live far from you.

Individual better be damn careful until this forum dies years from now. If I get even a hint of your actual name and location, no advanced warning when I show. We will not be talking.

Even banks are doing it in Jersey
TD Bank: The first hour of full-service branch operations and customer appointment bookings will be set aside for seniors and those at risk for COVID-19, the bank said in a notice on its website. "We are encouraging other customers to plan their trips accordingly to help us better protect this population," the bank said in a statement.

My wife is a medical lab tech, and I work in lab IT, too, often needing to visit medical offices to work on special comm networks. I'm technically on a "work from home" (which I normally do, any way) order, but still need to visit those offices. So either she or I will get it and give it to the other. Or maybe even we'll give it to each other at the same time, who knows.

We live a block away from what's usually a very busy north-south route that goes by Universal Studios on the west side of Orange County, and traffic is normally loud enough to wake me in the morning. Douches with their blasting car stereos, bikers and their wide-open throttles, tires squealing, etc. Road is usually a shit-show between 6am to about 9am. It's been almost pin-dropping quiet the last few days, sounds like a Sunday morning.
If you can't be a good example, you can still serve as a horrible warning.

I live about 100 yards from a very busy street - it's been about 10% of the traffic the last 10 days. I'm going 70 mph in rush hour traffic where it's usually stop and go.

The parks have been absolutely nuts busy the last few evenings.

My office building usually has about 30 people working in it - we are at about 7 I think. Oddly a week into their shelter in place - people are drifting back into their offices more often throughout the day.

Personally I'd like to drift back toward my appartment. My hands smell like bleach

Apparently in the NY area, kids are playing in team games at local parks (basketball, street hockey et.). I don't think they're getting it. And where's the enforcement?

Last night while walking the wife and I saw a party /bbq of about 20 people including kids running around. The wife commented someone should say something and I called her a Karen.

I'm keeping up with some Jersey facebook peeps and they are all pissed at the orthodox in Lakewood. I guess that's what happens when every political position, school board seat, councilman position is taken by one of your own. You pretty much make your own rules.

It's literally the biggest con game in the world going on in that town. 80% of them are on food stamps and welfare because they're "students"

I was just reading an article the other day that listed the 10 US cities that had the highest property decline in value. A NJ city was on the list only once with, you guessed it, Lakewood coming in 4th... I feel sorry for the original home owners there that are now taking a big hit. My advice, move out before it gets even worse.
