Ryanair.

It was Manchester to Malpensa which is a busy route so would have thought that would pay to run that flight. Seems not to be the case though.

Someone in the company quarantine tested positive to the COVID antibodies screening test today, so they have had a follow up full COVID test, if those results come back positive tomorrow morning they won't fly out the new crew and I could be doing another week out here.....

Bus passengers, again.

Today I have seen Hairnets as face masks and people removing masks once sat down and putting them back on to get off. Mostly covering the mouth but not the nose... The general public are thick as concrete...

I'm applying for other jobs almost daily at this point.

It not just bus passengers, Stonesie.

Police had to instigate an emergency resposne due to the number of **** sat on the beach at Bournemouth.

They should have just blocked off the exits and let the tide come in.

Bus passengers are what I see though, there's nothing very attractive about Doncaster so people don't flock here on nice days. :D

Did aeveryone see the litter and rubbish left on Bpourtnemouth beach? No wonder the locals want it closed to outsoders. Wales is thinking the same way from what a few welsh freinds have told me. They don't want scummy English visiting.

I saw the photos like everyone else about the muppets on the beaches, and the riots in Brixton.
I have a plan, get some crop duster planes, fill them with non toxic dye, bright pink would be nice. Spray the fecking lot of them!!!

Then when we are walking around doing our work, picking up our food, we can see who is likely to have the virus without too much trouble.
also same for gatherings in other places.... no need for apps, we can all see with our eyes.

All these people who are tying to do the right thing, keep safe, keeping others safe.... for other just to crap on the efforts being made.
As we all know the virus does not like the heat as much as it does the cold, it will love the colder weather we get at the end of the year, so the predictions of a second wave and lower temp, is likely to be far worse than what we have seen already. (feeling sad)


Perfect result.... then we can all agree human lives matter, i am sick and tired of people chanting white/black lives matter, for crying out loud ALL lives matter. The slogan then will be PINK faces suck ! 8)

We're moving down to the holiday home in Wales as soon as they relax 5 mile local travel limit. Fingers crossed we can stay down there until the kids go back to school in September, but knowing my luck I'll be unfurloughed in July.

Anyone local got a motorbike trailer I could borrow?
