From the NEW YORK POST:
Yesterday, I cancelled all spring orders.
I let everyone go except one person.
I closed the gate until April 1st at least.
Then I called the town to ask about town taxes due in April. I’m closed. No $ coming in, doing the responsible civic duty thing. I’m not paying town taxes with the little cash I have left from no work all winter. I asked them what their plan is for people like me.
The tax assessor transferred my call to the tax collector who rudely transferred me to the first selectman's office, who transferred my call to the business development’s office who said the town has not talked about it yet, that I was the first call. Funny, I would have thought they would have figured that that issue would pop up. Inexplicable.
I DON’T WANT TO DIE!
The most dangerous place to go is stop and shop where people don’t take the scare seriously enough except to hoard essentials depriving needier people of basic goods. Pathetic and reprehensible behavior, unstopped by the store management.
If they took this seriously, they would have every other cashier open, have only one set of doors open with a police officer allowing ONE shopper per group in the store ONLY. Maybe have fifty shoppers in all at once. Give away latex gloves and make people put them on while inside the store. Temperature scan them before entering... temp over 99.4??? Not allowed in.
Then, after the first fifty people are let in, cop closes the door. First shopper out, next shopper in. Second shopper out, second shopper in.
This is the way everyone needs to think right now.
If you want a case of coronavirus, go to the grocery store when the parking lot has a lot of cars parked, and you will be sure to start sniffling in five or six days, guaranteed.
