    Default Re: Finally Bought Some Land

    I was in an RV park in Panama City Beach on the 18th next to a man and wife from Mobile. He was a construction worker on a larger project which was attempting to meet the state guideline at the time which precluded groups larger than 10 congregating. He figured the job would be shut down. There were many itinerant workers in this RV park. I was up at 5:30 and saw them heading out to work- clearly subcontractors given the markings on the trucks. Subcontractors are more likely to be respectful of each other given they work in crews.

    As I returned from the valley today I saw a few houses in process with a few people working. It can be done carefully and where I live people are taking the possibility of infection very seriously to judge by the use of gloves and masks in town.

    I don't think construction workers are any more given to expectorating than cyclists and as for toilets, any public toilet can be pretty rank, no matter where it is.

    Bad carpenter joke:

    Two carpenters were working on the side of a house. All day long one guy was having to fix the other guy's mistakes and getting more and more frustrated. Finally mistake guy nails a long piece of trim upside down and the other guy loses it. "What the #*@(# are you doing? That's *#$)(@ upside down." Mistake guy looks at him and says, "Whatever man. You fix it if it bothers you so much. I gotta take a dump." So he climbs down and gets in the Porta-Jon. The other guy climbs down, gets into his truck and knocks the Porta-Jon over completely. Just then the GC drives up and sees one guy crawling out of the broken Porta-Jon, completely covered, and one guy sitting in his truck a few feet away, engine still revving. The GC points at the guy in the Porta-Jon and says, "You're fired." The guy says "Hey! He hit me with a truck! Why am I getting fired?" The GC says, "Cause you're a shitty carpenter."

    My typical ride takes me past about 30 condo construction projects and I've been amazed to see them all bustling like nothing is going on. Ugh.

    I saw the same thing in Brooklyn until very recently. Glad things are changing here in the state of New York
