Going forward, what if anything will you do differently to protect yourself


I'm really curious as to which ways the current pandemic will get people to change their habits.

And also, which changes would you want the government to get involved in implementing?

Some things I've already noticed:

1) People aren't using cash as much anymore. Should it be banned and force society to use either debit cards, credit cards or crypto/electronic forms of payment?

2) People aren't eating restaurant food nearly as much anymore. Should those who work with food be forced to wear masks and gloves?

3) People have stopped going to salons and are letting their gray roots grow out, like Kelly Ripa. Should all hair-related services require masks and gloves for the workers?

4) People are using gloves to pump their gas. Should gas stations be required to have plastic gloves at every gas pump, similar to the plastic bags found in produce departments?

5) People are avoiding cashiers and using self-checkouts whenever possible. Should stores be required to have some self-checkouts?

6) Door handles are being avoided. Should all doors be replaced with ones that are either automatic or swing in both directions?

7) I know many of us have already talked about this one, should handshaking be phased out?

8) Driver licenses should all be digital. Nobody should have to hand their license to a security guard, police officer or bank teller. Costco has already started this with their membership cards.

9) All tolls should be electronic, many states have already began removing toll booths.

I'm sure there's plenty more I'm missing, but this is a good start wink

1) "THEY" have been trying to get rid of cash forever. So, no.

6) Just, no.

7) Fuck. No.

8) How would that work? Biometric? No.


Based upon limited in-vitro and anecdotal data, chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine are currently recommended for treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in several countries.

I really don't feel the need to protect myself from a Democratic hoax. Plus it will disappear soon. Looking forward to Easter Service!!
