So I am in what is considered an essential service as an automotive technician. As such I am still one of those who is going to work every day. I get to see a little bit more of what’s going on then those of you who have been working from home or have been home for any number of reasons. It’s a surreal experience driving to work each day with such light traffic And few people about. We are certainly not busy and there has been lay offs. Cars break and people need them as much now as ever I get that but it still surprises me that some people will risk their health and possibly their lives for.
There still seems to be a percentage of people that seem to feel none of this applies to them.
We are doing what we can to protect ourselves but most trust in others that they will do the same for us.
I can’t imagine what the true front line folks are experiencing in health care and even the heavy traffic retailers like the grocery stores.
I guess I just want to thank all of those who are out there working those front line jobs and providing the basics for the rest of us. These are the truly essential people.
