Coronavirus Work-life

My friend applied to work an Amazon warehouse since his industry is taking a hit. He was pre approved and went to onsite to take a drug test, and told me on-site HR and Amazon team leads (cont.)

...refused to social distance and came up to his face to talk and took his phone to show him an app they use at work. I’m appalled that a company that toots about taking preventive measures at their warehouses can’t even educate their own employees about social distancing. How does he log a complaint about this or go about this? He’s desperate and needs the job during this crisis but is having second thoughts after this experience

I’m sure there are lift trucks and stuff like that - they have to test in that environment.

A guy I went to highschool with is some sort of experienced floor supervisor there and he is quite the trash human. I see him social media a few nights a week bragging about partying, going to people's houses, joking about the virus and joking about how he touches so many boxes a day. Definitely I've taken a stance to leave all my boxes outside a few days before I bring in.

Eff this! I’ve clocked in 72 hours so far this week and counting as I’m working all weekend. How about you? I’m starting happy hour early! Cucumber Lemon Thyme Fizz. This is supposed to be a mocktail but turned it into a cocktail and spiked with gin. Cheers to 7/15!

I’m a fairly shallow person so thought even if I get the best possible SO, I will lose interest sooner or later. But then I realized it’s also due to the fact that I just like the IDEA of being in love, but never can truly love anyone where I put them ahead of me/my needs. Anyone else feel this?
