    A few observations...I was in Minnesota, Iowa and Kansas for about a week(last week). Every delivery person I saw did not have gloves or a mask. USPS, Fed EX, UPS(UPS guy did have a vest on!). All going ALL OVER THE PLACE in and out. So, what are we doing? Most of the clerk type people at say a Tractor Supply or even the take out drive through window and even restaurant dine in places, generally didn't have a mask or gloves.

    What are we doing? So, someone will pick a magical day and all of this will be "over" "safe"? What does that mean? I've seen stories of Dr.'s questioning the use of ventilators! OMG! The city of New York sold thousands of them because they were just too expensive to maintain. Everyone blaming someone else. Articles saying this could happen several times a year! One day it's not as bad as we thought to BUT HOLD ON!

    What are we doing?

    An * to the very end. All of that and still have to belittle and attack. All on the backs of the suffering. Classy. BTW- I have a little more time now that I'm not working 120 hours a week..

    It seems like he’s rambling that the USA is doing nothing to stop it. Yet on a per capita basis they’ve done as good job as anyone at slowing the spread and it looks like this weekend will be the peak then a downward slope.

    he had a sleeper run. I'm assuming he's counting every hour he's not home.

    I flossed over it because I’m a realist and I know there isn’t much else we can do other than deliver boxes. You asked what we’re doing. There is no magic fix. We can only control what directly affects us and half the time we can’t even do THAT. So why worry about all those other things? You can’t change any of it.

    Is that enough fluff for you Mr. Uptight and Miserable @UpstateNYUPSer
