What is wrong with people? Are they all Covid idiots?

Post by bb49 »

Has this social distancing turned people into idiots?
Has life been so difficult they turn into brainless fool's?

Instances in two Kamloops restaurants. Both completely unacceptable.
Whether it's treating restaurant staff like *bleep*, loosening lug nuts, partying on third beach, people's behaviour has gone down the sewer.

Black Ram truck with AB plate was pulling large trailer with three big Quads on it - down Columbia St. afternoon of August 6th. No, I did not 'panic' but did wonder who it was and why were they here in the Loops - if they indeed live in AB. Still plenty of BC residents registering vehicles thru AB and not a problem - until they have a 'claim'. P.S. (to those Albertonians) - I hear there is good quading country from Canmore down thru the Kananaskis (to Blairmore). sigh.

"Sigh" is right.

Why were they in Kamloops?
Well, Kamloops is on the TCH which comes from Calgary and points east, as well as Hwy 5 which comes from Edmonton, and there's also a steady stream of out-of-province plates on these highways, some as far away as Quebec and Ontario. Never seen any from the Maritimes recently.

And, here's the best reason yet, there are a number of pipeline crews in town, with plans to gitter done. :up:
Could they be using those quads on the pipeline?

USA seems to have a lot of them right now ... 1000's of bikers from across the country descend on Sturgis - who knows how many will/could be infected when they head home.

Day one of the 2020 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is full throttle.

STURGIS, S.D. (KELO) — Day one of the Sturgis Rally is underway. Tens of thousands of bikers from across the nation are packing into the city to celebrate the 80th annual event, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bikes, bikes and more bikes. Streets in Sturgis’ downtown area are reserved for motorcycle parking, and spots are full.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

99% of these bikers are Harley riders. They hate wearing helmets so don't expect them to wear masks.
But being old farts, Covid will eat them up.

True, most ride a Harley and while a few outlaw or social motorcyle club members attend the event the top 3 professions making an appearance are doctors, lawyers and accountants.
