You have all the fervor of an exsmoker that hates smokers.

It's boorish.

Your anti-religious fervor has almost reached the peak blindness of religious fervor.

I'm glad that I only have two employees that work 1 shift a piece twice a month.

Fuck the restaurants it's the workforce that I worry about.

I gave both my employees 4 pounds of coffee to weather the apocalypse. They both have other jobs and don't rely on me to pay their bills. I honestly can't believe that they've been willing to keep their shifts with me for years. I guess they like the gig.

It's saint Paddy's Day and so it's time for soda bread.

It's a no yeast bread, pretty easy to make and decent eating.

I've got a corned beef brisket and potato, carrot, cabbage and onion to go with it.

I'm also making a batch of sauerkraut for next week.

I bought a jar of yeast in the lead up to this and am planning on making bread every few days.

I'm also subscribed to a weekly loaf of sourdough bread by a local baker. This week's loaf was rye with sprouted and smoked buckwheat, damn good bread. He delivers. I finished off the loaf last night by making tuna, salmon, crab cakes (I stocked up on canned fish) over the grilled bread with arugula tossed in a vinnagrette and a soft boiled egg.

So far the apocalypse is good eating!

At the same time I know that churches and pious individuals are going to be some of the few out helping the large homeless population in my area throughout this epidemic.

I get how dangerous the rhetoric from the Christian right is but I'm consistently humbled by how much churches and individuals in my neighborhood are doing for the common good.

I'm going to keep my weekly D&D game going, so long as no one gets sick.

You need something to live for right?

cgod  ·  15 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Ask Hubski, should I close my coffee shop?

I'm shutting down after today.

I'm going to open for a few hours tomorrow and give away milk, coffee and whatever other perishables I have left.

It's really bugging the shit out of me. Four years of 363 days a year and I'm just going to go home.

I hope to get some yard work done.

I think the government isn't doing what it needs to to slow the progression of the disease and that we the people need to start acting to decrease it's spread.

I think closing is the ethical thing to do to try and slow the diseases progression. I suppose it's to protect my patrons but I know that unless many of us start doing the right thing it will make little difference. Nonetheless I think I should try and do what I can.

Or their union sucks.

My wife's union before she went into management had let health care fees go up faster than raises for almost a decade, all while raises were often less than the rate of inflation.

The guy they would send to do negotiations had no idea of what he was doing. Things would sneak into the contract that were against the interest of employees which only a lawyer would understand.

Grievance would see little follow through.

My wife's branch of the Teamsters had a lot of soft corruption. The union collectes dues, union representatives collect paychecks and the workers got little from it. The only reason her shop is unionized is because Democrats generally won't buy printing from a non union shop, so the company let's one in ten shops be union shops as long as they don't demand much at negotiating time.

If the union gets uppity they close the shop down.

The solution would be to unionize the across the whole network of print shops but I guess the Teamsters don't organize anymore.

It's a fucking mess.

Why would the average employee be pro union if this is what it gets them?

I'm going to all to go cups at the shop on Thursday. People are going to think I'm wacky, oh well.
