The Covid-19 Thread
« on: March 18, 2020, 10:44:14 PM »
Working from home!

I haven't made up my mind about this one yet.
It's a bit surreal to some degree.
I lack data!

I'm still alive.

One month later: still alive!
But I am expecting a 20% pay cut for April.

Try being sick for 3 years! ;-) I got roughly 70% of my base salary now.
The start was a bit better (90% first year) but since I switch employee before I got sick I dropped 30% anyhow at that.

Next month I'm back 100% again, and probably more like 120%.
But 30 more days before that happens so it's chill. :)

To riljek's great annoyance, I am still alive.
If there is a thread, I'll post in it. If I post in it, it will die. That is the cycle of the Walrus.

When people see me lurkin', they go pomgwtfnoesbbq and guestify. Are you a pretty little guest now too?

Nice! I hope...!

We Swedes broke some kind of limt and we now had 7 dead per million a day.
But we are working at least. :)

Next month I'm back at work 100% as well. I got my own room at least. That is nice. :)

Btw: Actual pay cut was much less, as for each day I didn't work, I was still paid 80%. So in stead of cutting 20% (days not worked), It was only cut 4% before tax, so I got off allright.
My ear has a massive infection now, so I guess, I'll be going to a doctor soon after all.

Nah, everybody is just way on edge, and the media coverage of American looting makes it appear to be acceptable.

You need all to go back to your hole in the ground and eat some moss.
