I've been going to the same barber for 30 some years, always packed. He dutifully shut down and probably lost a couple of the other cutters who probably didn't have as much money set aside. Well, he's reopened and now requiring name, email, and phone number in order to wait in line. Fuck that, he knows my name, he knows where I work and even where I live, I'm not handing it over to the State for monitoring. I went to another barber a bit further away, same shit. So I taught the missus how to cut hair, and while I prefer being out of the house, it saves me a couple hundo a year and she'll get better with time, probably not before I go bald anyway though.

Do you really think for a second that the Government doesn't already have all that info bout every one of us?

If you do, I'd like to discuss a really nice Real Estate investment with you.

Dumbshits with rage against the machine even though it is in interest of tracking infections and not for individual reasons. You are probably way too boring to interest the government in anything you do or not do. USA 90,000 deaths in a very short time and still counting all while quarantining. Shits going to get real now, need some tracking info to let you know your ass was exposed.
