Coronavirus and Walt Disney World general discussion

I looked really quickly at my vaccination record to see what atypical vaccines I may have received while I was in the military: anthrax, smallpox, typhoid and yellow fever. All have full FDA approval (or had, the legal status of the smallpox vaccine at the time I received it was a little murky, since it came from a national strategic stockpile, not the usual industry sources).

Specifically, the Anthrax vaccine didn't receive FDA approval until 2004 and by that point, anyone who went on an OIF vacation had been fully vaccinated with the whole series. I didn't mind at the time, especially after we took over the College of Science in An Nasiriyah https://goo.gl/maps/XDA86A6qSR8E6b267 where they had a nice mural of Anthrax propagation.

Wasn't aware that was a new vaccine, since an anthrax vaccine has been available to high risk occupations (shepherds and large animal vets) for decades.

Second time in a couple of months a random dirtbag "customer" (we didn't recognize) came in to rant about our mask requirement. The first one called my employee the gay f word. Today a different whacko asked the same employee if he had gotten AIDS yet, adding, "You will."
People are insane. Sorry to your employee. That's just horrible what people do and say!

This is not masks but again no one agrees. And I am happy those 49 agree. :rolleyes:
There will be some that will doubt the booster shots and continue to cloud some minds . I didn't doubt it and I got my Moderna booster shot last Saturday.

Lacking even basic civility I'm afraid is becoming more common. Yesterday I was in a drive-through line for a simple sausage and egg biscuit and experienced a crazed customer. She ordered an apple pie, didn't like it got a second one, didn't like it, was offered a refund and began screaming at the employee that she demanded a fresh cooked pie. A bit of cursing later when handed the cost of the pie, she threw it back at the employee and refused to drive away, so the police had to be called. All over a 99 cent snack.

Everyone should be forced to work retail for a period of time so they know what is like to deal with customers like this

Can the employee advise the cops and say she was assaulted by the customer who hit her with an apple pie? It was at drive thru so there is probably videotape. Possibility of going to jail over 99 cents.

And people wonder why so many are trying to leave service industry jobs. People have gotten nasty as all get out. A handful of months ago we had a client who was unreasonable in requests (luxury items) and after the client darn near harassing me to do exactly as he wanted or we'd regret it, he flippantly said he knew he shouldn't try to work with a dirty Jew. We handed his money back and said to not ever contact us again. Whether $1 or $10k people can be nuts.

I can only imagine what the CMs have been through lately.

Although I wonder how much of this is new. As a teenager, I worked at an AMC. You should have seen how triggered some people could get when we ran out of those stupid pretzel bite things. Or my personal favorite: "I'm going to miss my movie and sue all of you because the parking lot was full and I had to walk really far." I'm guessing that one never went to trial...

The medical version of "customer-facing retail" is working in an ER. It's not pretty.

NJ also now requiring all public and private school employees and contractors to be vaccinated by October 18 or undergo a minimum twice-weekly COVID test. Same for all state employees, including public colleges and universities.

I believe all hospital and nursing home/congregate setting employees were already mandated a couple of weeks ago. Given the size of healthcare, education, and government employee pool, that’s a huge swath of the state.

And throw into the mix paid FastPass which is going to just add to the entitlement, expectations, and anger.
