Just been in the smaller of the two Tesco in Lincoln. Things were pretty much in stock apart from loo roll and pet food. Did see one guy at the till getting told by the checkout girl that he couldn't

I'll eventually work through all the messages but I'm safe. Thanks folks. I'm still an absolute mess but safe all the same.

Your situation is awful, I'm really sorry for what you and your family are going through. I can't even begin to imagine.

I hope you can look at this thing about the medals as funny and endearing though. I'm sure there's no malice in the lie at all.

 

We found out at my step-granddad's funeral that he hadn't been a policeman during WWII as he'd told us, but had in fact been in prison for counterfeiting £5 notes. We found it very funny, he was a lovable rogue type.

Bet some of your relatives were red faced though when they heard that.

I wonder if I've ever made a post on here that I've not had to edit? You'd think I'd learn to proofread them, but I absolutely won't.

It's nothing I haven't done myself.

Not going to pretend to know how you’re feeling @Suplex Sinner, but for what it’s worth you have a whole forum of wrestling fans and socially awkward wronguns in your corner. And the Highland Games is so impressive, I’d be proud as fuck.

The majority of Olympic events are dull as dishwasher anyway, but the Highland Games I could stand and watch all day. If your grandad doesn’t chat shit about his youth, is he even your grandad?  He still sounds like a character and I’m sure you’ll all have a laugh about it when the time is right.

Tragic news about your cousin, it sounds like you have a close knit family and I’m sure you’ll help each other through this.

So, in work related fun...

Under government guidance we kept our libraries open for reserve and collect and PC access. When that was proposed I mentioned all my concerns to my manager including the fact that people were travelling across multiple sites, both staff and users.

This was discussed in my manager's 1-2-1 with the head of libraries. This 1-2-1 was then accidentally shared with me by the head of libraries. In it I was described as argumentative and that my mental health was impacting my performance at work.

This week 2 libraries had to close because, hold onto your hats, they had failed to take my advice about the bubbles seriously.

Despite the fact that 2 sites ended up with Covid outbreaks, rather proving that the sites aren't Covid secure, they are still going to be hosting support groups for vulnerable people in the libraries. 

Looking forward to my next 1-2-1...

Bristol almost certainly going into Tier 3 when lockdown ends. With fortnightly reviews, that means there'll be a maximum of six days between the official position here being "too dangerous to go in a pub, watch sport, go in anyone else's house, leave your area or be in a group of 7 in a garden" and "it's safe to bring three households together for five days of Christmas."
