jokes and COVID-19

Thursday, May 21, 2020

The last month or two has been stressful for so many with COVID-19 forcing all of us to stay at home. How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed your life?
I don't know if you call me a lucky one or a unlucky one. I work in a grocery store as a dishwasher. So I am a essential worker. So I got to keep my job . But that mean I am out in the public three days a week . It a little scary. The other 4 days I
take care of my 94 years old mom . I also help with my great niece
Natalie and my great nephew Elijah, . Elijah have Cerebral palsy cause by his father shaking him. So I am real concern I don't want to bring any illness home with me. What have you learned from the COVID-19 pandemic? I learn that most
American are very nice and will help other most of the time. But I also learn that
there are some who won't think of other and follow the rules.

Careful when you wish
Two men died and went to Heaven. St. Peter greeted them, and said "I'm sorry, gentlemen, but your mansions aren't ready yet. Until they are, I can send you back to Earth as whatever you want to be."
"Great!" said the first guy, "I want to be an eagle soaring above beautiful scenery!"
"No problem," replied St. Peter, and POOF! The guy was gone. "And what do you want to be," St. Peter asked the other guy.
"I'd like to be one cool stud!" was the reply.
"Easy," replied St. Peter, and the other guy was gone.
After a few months, their mansions were finished, and St. Peter sent an angel to fetch them back. "You'll find them easily," he says, "One of them is soaring above the Grand Canyon, and the other one is on a snow tire somewhere in Detroit!"

Smith goes to see his supervisor in the front office. "Boss," he says, "we're doing some heavy house-cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff."
"We're short-handed, Smith" the boss replies. "I can't give you the day off."
"Thanks, boss," says Smith "I knew I could count on you!"

Some jokes I hope you like
Willpower is the ability to resist temptation until you can be sure that no-one's looking...
Who says I've got no will power - I'll get that pecan pie if it's the last thing I do.
I went on a diet, swore off drinking and heavy eating, and in fourteen days I lost two weeks.
Dieter's Law: food that tastes the best has the highest number of calories.
About the only time losing is more fun than winning...is when you're fighting temptation.
If it wasn't for wrestling with my conscience...I'd get no exercise at all.
I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.
If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.
I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years... just getting over the hill.

    Great blog, Karenmarie! I am glad you have been able to keep your job during the pandemic. Thank you for being an essential worker. I appreciate you and all of the other essential workers. I can imagine how stressful and worrying it must be to work in a public place where you might unknowingly bring home the virus to one of your loved ones that you help care for. It's wonderful how the pandemic has brought out the best in some people and the worst in others. emoticon emoticon

    Those jokes were so funny! I especially liked the Dieter's Law. emoticon

    Thanks for the jokes. And thank you for continuing to work so the rest of us can have what we need. I am lucky that I was working from home even before the pandemic hit and have continued to do so.

    Has been trying for so many. We are in NE Florida and we stayed home according to plans. My work was essential so I worked by shifts. Hubby was off but we were fortunate that his company paid their employees.

    I'm out of work. Gave up my car since it's been a pain. I'm not sure I'm going back, thinking I will, but maybe not as many hours, though I DO enjoy it. Kids are sooo funny and they aren't our responsibility. Well, of course they ARE when they are in school, but it's not the same as raising them in that way. Been there, did that! She's now almost 25 and her little one is almost 3.

    Are your great niece and nephew living with you? It is scary to think of possibly bringing home the virus. I'm being cautious. In our area in 10 days retail stores reopen. Somethings are already opened. I think restaurants open in 10 days, but I am not going to them or any other place with a lot of people.

    I am glad you are still able to work during the pandemic, but I can imagine the worry you feel since you have to work at a public place and then go home to take care of your mom, great niece and great nephew. I know what you mean about some people being so kind and helpful and others thinking only of themselves and ignoring rules and safety precautions!

    The stress for me was helping DH pack & move everything out of the office, 1 very large bookshelf/cabinet, 1 regular size bookcase, 2 desks, a file cabinet and a very large,heavy Nu-step cross-trainer machine. Also from the kitchen. A large corner unit with TV, 6 of the dining chairs, a water cooler etc. etc. etc. Only to have Covid-19 hit and we put everything back. Well not unpack but move all the furniture back. Now finally things have opened up enough that we are able to get the work done so everything got moved out and the baseboards taken off again and we are now 2 days into the job with at least another 3 to go. Stress!
