"We don't want to miss out on that extra demand. Worst case is we end up with too much product of the things that are in demand now," he said.We know what a metre and a half is now... so it's obvious now we can all give each 1.5 metres safely – even on the road.

We drive past 99 Bikes at Stanmore in Sydney a few weeks ago on a Saturday morning. There was the usual 1.5m spacing Covid line out the front but the line went on for about 30 metres, right past 2-3 of the neighbouring businesses. They were killing it.When lockdowns started i went into several 99 bike shops and they all limited people in store. I needed gloves and went to try them on and the guy said he couldn't let me do it. I asked how would I know if they dont fit and he said he didnt have a good solution. I had to lay it flat and place my hand on it.
Hoardes of old people through the cafe today. All wanting to dine. Those that can't fit getting shitty. All purchases still served as takeaway...they get shitty. Sit for long periods of time on a cup of coffee. They really are the worst kind of customers. Had a small family order up a storm but they had to do take away because we were full of narky 100 year old tight arses. Did they complain? Of course not.There's a group of 6 retiree looking people on bikes gathering in the park behind my house right now.
Cheer up young man. Always good to be back at the salt mines and the people need you.Had a small family order up a storm but they had to do take away because we were full of narky 100 year old tight arses. Did they complain? Of course not.
Not oblivious, entitled...and selfish.how oblivious can you be to take up very limited space and nurse a coffee for hours this week. not like the cafe has to try and make an income or anything
We stayed open the whole time. Just on much more restricted hours and a huge downturn in cash flow and shifts. People crawling in now are Johnny come lately of you ask me!
Damn right. Those entitled out of towners again sneaking around after restrictions loosen up.We stayed open the whole time. Just on much more restricted hours and a huge downturn in cash flow and shifts. People crawling in now are Johnny come lately of you ask me!
That's the tip of the iceberg...some of the entitled boomers around here have been booking reservations at the pubs/restaurants - that have been busting their arse to try and stay open offering takeaways etc keeping their staff through this - only to be a no show...when a table of 4 bails of a 10 person capacity venue, that's gunna hurt.Not oblivious, entitled...and selfish.
