Greetings Me Droogs and Droogettes!
A later poast as Wifey wanted to go up to the mall
Needed her nails done Aye?
I don’t mask
So before going out, I hadda get the printer fired up
Made me AND Wifey the “Get Out Of Jail” cards for us
I found a picture on the web of what the sticker that was pasted on a –real- vaccinated soon-to-be-dead motherfucker’s card who poasted it up on somewhere… either way, I got a shit ton of self adhesive labels and made me a bunch with the ‘proper looking’ stuff as you see. Y’all already know I had the card ready-to-be-printed already. As well as the proper cardstock yadda-yadda.
And whaddya know?
Paul Blart, Mall Cop came up to me
As did a couple of other busybodies.
“Scuse me while I whip this out!”
A little too well as I then had one guy begging me to tell him where I got it, and how could HE get the shot? Told him I work at the VA Hospital and needed it for work. That mollified him but man…
Lots of people desperate to get it.
It was odd running around the mall… I counted three people without masks. One of whom I think was of liked-mindedness as me. We grinned at each other whilst walking past and nodded as we knew we were the –only– sane people there.
I mean it’s not like I’m getting in someone’s face. It’s not like I’m licking doorknobs, or windows. I just went in, got my shit done, and got out. TBH, the issue with me besides the ‘sheeple’ factor is not for nothing, missing an air bag makes me have a bitch of a time when I’m masked. The whole “lung cancer thing” should automatically get me a pass on the stupid, but some people never heard of HIPAA or the fact that it’s just easier
to ‘fake it til you make it.’
Now, on to other observations.
I could only take the one picture:
The girl doing “COVID Guard” at the door to the store got a bit upset when I took a pic of the sign. The whole ‘suspicious see-something-say-something’ narc-a-neighbor STASI is in full effect. Now, this and a handful of other stores had the same sign or variations of in their doors as well. Didn’t get pics as I had already hadda deal with Paul Blart. But the others were, shall we say informative?
Think “Stores that a certain >ahem< Jogging Demographic prefer during their “free-shit-shopathons”
“I’ll take “Stores Most Likely to be Looted By Packs of Feral Niggers” for $1000 Alex.”
Yeah… dunno why, but closed on Wednesday the 6th?
What’s going on the 6th?
Nothing here that I know of
I mean yeah, Washington and the “Great Lost Hope” and shytte…
But apparently, either everyone requested that particular day off, or they got intel of -something- in the wind that we plebes ain’t been told about. Considering how the news is these days? I mean I might be over-reading into this like I did with Navy Fed (BTW Thanks for all the localized intel y’all sent. Great Job!) but still… Odd as fuck that a dying mall has stores in dire need of money shutting down like that… even for a day.
And dying it is…
LOTS of places closed up.
Lots of unused space
Lots of empty kiosks that used to sell tchotchkes and bullshit
Had that mid-Eighties feel that I got in 1987 when the first BIG mall contraction hit. I was a mall rat back in those days, and when they over-populated the Malls like -everywhere- a lot of them started dying on the vine… this mall here, it’s one of the bigger ones and I haven’t set foot there since the beginning of last year. It’s got that ‘soon to shit the bed’ feel going on. Lots of “Going out of business” signage, lots of “Extreme Discounts” all over…
So, More Later, Gotta do TV with Wifey
I Remain The Intrepid Reporter
