I also miss having to walk between locations. I gained like 25lb just because of that. Or maybe I just hit 30... :'(
I last went into the office about 2 weeks ago. There were only 6 cars in a parking lot that used to have well over 100, and cobwebs have taken over the furniture, ceiling, and now very dead plants. The building where I work is mostly finance, IT, and customer service, and was slowly falling apart before being more or less abandoned for seven months. I wouldn't be surprised if they close it down before sending people back to it.

Sounds like a good place for an apocolypse-themed Nerf fight lol.

Yep, the first picture was taken when I was stationed at Coleman Barracks, Germany, the second picture was taken nine years later, after the Canadians moved in.

Except for the very first week of lock-down, I've been in the office through the whole thing. Could work from home but frankly its just easier being in the office.

I have never been off. Even when the plant was down for a month I was one of only two people still in. Since we came back up in May I have worked a minimum of 10 hours every day with some of them going over 12. These are the joys of being a Health and Safety professional during a pandemic I guess.
The nice part is that since we are not permitted to travel between plants in different regions I have not had to go to the one in the hot spot and have managed it by phone and video.

Everyone getting laid off was told yesterday. I am glad they told people early so they would stop asking me Most had vacation time left so they where allowed to use it on the 2nd which will continue their health benefits for November. Most were pretty much okay with it so that was good.

Yea, never off either, just had the option to WFH. MomHawk was working from home for 3 months, then off for the summer (standard, she works for a school system) then back in schools this Fall.

I did have two sons without jobs, or on partial employment for several months. They did OK though thanks to unemployment, the Federal kicker, and living at home for the duration. They are both back to full time employment now.
