I got a big brute of 20 kg at the back of smithfield 2 years ago for £40, that is very dear for a £12. I guess they are getting high demand with everybody TFH?
It does, however being self-employed still doesn't come with much.
The dole and sick pay tend to be better than the UK for sure.
That's going to be the tricky thing as there's isn't so much hard evidence on what is safe.
Schools may not be "as bad" so will they open up schools one group at the time, like 11-12 first and the exam years first? Then slowly go to shops, then bars/cafes and then festivals? We have to wait and see...
A case of "we didn't bother then" rather than "you have 3 seconds to run down the steps" the local RM van postie is really good at that. Not the regular one, he always waits and is happy to have a chat.
As you say probably super busy, maybe UPS is reducing targets so people don't have to make things up, but I'm not sure.
All Saints now tells everybody deliveries take longer, but they use DPD.
Some small shops are opening again in The Netherlands, with the implementation of 1.5 meter rule, more cleaning etc... I think they want to re-open much more April 28th.
I suppose NL will be another data set for us look at soon.
The "herd immunity" or accepting people may need to catch it wasn't as controversial in NL. Which hasn't had a decade of savage health cuts and there is more trust in the government. They did close schools/shops much earlier.
There are graveyards in Belfast where some soil still can never be disturbed as people that had an unknown but deathly disease got buried there... 100s of years ago.
Let's hope they cremate people...which is also problematic as in some religions it is seen as not allowed etc. and others rather be buried, but this is sorta serious.
Everyone here knocks the window / door, drops parcel, runs 5 meters and shouts PARCEL!!! which is fair enough. Don't be surprised if it ends up in a bin or random place with a "it's in the garden" note.
I guess covid19, nor anything, will never change courier company excuses :)
I was wondering a few days ago if that would still be used as an excuse and here we are...
They'll come back? Or is it "where is the depot" time?
That would be great, he actually did ask for the help.
But to go behind the bosses' back like that would be unusual in any political party/company...
