    I would rather have dinner at my place and watch stuff on Netflix or YouTube.

    I'm old and it's showing.

    I am a misanthropic introvert. At the same time, I've always liked puttering around stores.

    When I introduced ear buds to the masked supermarket game, it was game over. The buds are small, but still visible enough for other people to see I have them in. So my risk of human interaction gets even lowered with my getup.

    If I think someone is trying to make small talk near me - I will stare straight ahead, finally pick out a new salsa to try, put it in my basket / cart, and continue on. They saw the ear buds, they just assume I never heard them. It's social diplomatic immunity.

    Yeah, I am familiar with the industry and what’s going on. What happened wasn’t a deal with being understaffed, it was ineptitude.

    Also Virgin Atlantic agents were ultimately the ones who denied us boarding. Had it been a Delta flight they would’ve let us on. It’s all just ridiculous at the moment travelling during this pandemic so you have to have those expectations.

    Got myself Chik-Fil-A in concourse A as my last meal tho :)

    Oh dude, totally. If I'm out and about somewhere but have my earbuds in and I see people approaching, I'll purposely fiddle with my earbuds for a second just to draw attention to the fact that I'm not "receiving any callers at the moment".

    Another introvert quirk - I often use the self-checkout option at grocery stores but they usually still have a person that oversees the area. Sometimes that person will talk to me. I want to be like bitch I'm in the self check out, don't talk to me.

    Ear buds and a mask. When I actually go out I can linger in a store for hours. I can't hear anybody. Nobody can really see my face. This is why I don't want the pandemic to end.

    Exactly! I'm in this line because I don't want some person in my face. I'll put that little basket back in its place before I leave. Just go away.

    I understand that airlines must be struggling right now. But my issues with Delta happened a long time ago.

    haha same here. Even when I do go through where there's a cashier, people at Publix specifically love to comment on the shit I'm buying and it drives me fuckin nuts. Like, just ring up my shit cashier monkey I don't want your commentary on what I'm buying.

    Haha. Exactly. I worked a second job as a cashier for a few years. I learned quickly to read the customers and react. Some liked to chat and that was fine. Others just want to get their stuff and get out as fast as possible.

    Been the best year of my life!

    I will shop only at self checkouts even if there's a huge line and open registers

    She's on the small side, but she's getting very solid. 9 pounds right now with a baby face. But she is the boss around here. In total control over me and older cat.

    I hope she will lost a little of the attitude. She's usually very cuddly but sometimes smacks me in the face, with the claws out, for no reason.

    Fixing up my 2013 Toyota to sell it. Hoping this is worth the extra work and that these little details attract buyers.

    Before and after for todays work in the garage.
