    Covid-19 Megathread

    I'm envious. I've totally fucked myself over at work by asking a question about why we've more than halved the amount of cleaning time when we're saying we follow all government advice (which says to increase the frequency and clean heavily used objects daily). Apparently they've asked the union about it and they're not happy about the cleaning regime either. I've now got to improve it but I can't clean it myself or ask staff because we haven't been trained. I can't have a cleaner in any more days. The only solution I've got to that at the moment is to only have staff in on the days the cleaners are in (which I'm guessing isn't going to be the correct answer...).

    Ours could get counted in relation to warnings depending on how HR are feeling...

    Covid-19 Megathread

    New "I'm not sure you're taking this seriously" work discussion is regarding self isolating. Essentially if you self isolate and then get a negative test result it *can* count against you in a sickness review. It *might not* and HR are taking a "pragmatic" approach. But they haven't defined what that means.

    Inevitably the law on face coverings in changing to include museums, galleries, cinemas, theatres and places of worship. Obviously the government can't remember whether libraries exist so we're still waiting to see what that means.

    Covid-19 Megathread

    Managed to get the wording changed on visitors wearing masks in my library service. Not without a degree of friction. I think I upset the apple cart a bit by asking if staff were consulted. The response was pretty much "I don’t need to consult anyone but my management team and it would be impossible to consult everyone" followed by "after receiving some feedback I've decided to change the wording." If only there had been a way of getting that feedback before the original decision had been made... It's an interesting time for realising what people really think.

    Is it fair to say that the King's Road style that both AJPW and NOAH employed just doesnt lead to long term success for a promotion? There's a great peak but then it all comes crashing down due to not being able to create new stars and injuries?

    Unsurprisingly I'm not the only person who's concerned about it. It also turns out that some libraries are still saying visitors need to wear masks. The head of my library service has tried to quell fears by saying: "I hope (and expect) many visitors will wear masks." Well hey, I'm very comforted by the fact that you *hope* that's the case.

    Thank you. It makes every bad decision harder to take right now.

    I mean, I expected them not to include libraries in the announcement but not to actually state that it doesn't apply to libraries. I work in one. I've already lost a colleague (and friend) from Covid and my employers are already cutting corners. I really can't stand to lose anymore.

    For some bloody reason libraries aren't included in the mandatory mask deal. Fuck knows why.

    My biggest irritation at the moment is seeing people take off their mask to have a chat on the phone while riding the bus. Even if its the kidnappers who kidnapped your daughter or terrorists telling you where the next bomb is, just tell them to text you.
  12. Everyone seems to be assuming that Omega even wants to be a star. Its quite possible he's done a Nakamura and gone to the US to not be a star at all. He never really seemed to like the NJPW schedule, maybe an easy schedule and easy money is all he wants.
  13. With all due respect to Kenny Omega, I don't think he could play a bad ass even if he wanted to (and he clearly doesn't want to). I actually think AEW should be less interested in the 18-39 males and more interested in borrowing NJPW's focus on bringing in a female audience. Ultimately though, AEW isn't WCW. Its one of those money mark promotions dreamed up in the early 2000s except its actually become real. Bringing in Vickie Guerrero (random ex WWE talent who probably isn't going to add much to the product), bringing back random titles from ECW and letting the wrestlers book the divisions is just like the "wins and losses will matter," and the rankings and the video game that will take inspiration from No Mercy and the being on TNT, it's all stuff that promoters say they're going to do before they end up in one of Ian's old IndyWank threads. It's like someone has finally come along with enough money to break the unwritten laws of the universe and made it all actually happen.
  14. I'd say The Shield were pretty lucky to escape a dream match with Austin, Rock and Cena. Even at their peak they'd have been eaten alive.
