Don’t worry they gave everyone 1200.00 last year we can all live off of that once everything is closed.


The little Caesar’s in my town doesn’t open until 3Pm and are currently closed due to “ovens broke” excuse. You know shits gone down hill if you can’t get your $6 pies at the Caesar.


1/3 – 1/2 of my class is absent. I’m a teacher. Every day I get notified of at least 2 more kids who tested positive. Every Monday when we do testing I find out about 10+ kids. They only let me know if kids I have test positive so the number is likely 6x that across the school.
