    This shit is going to kill a lot of small businesses... How the fuck is a tire store supposed to operate from home? I still haven't figured it out.
    Wasn't your masterplan to let the virus kill all the weak? That would inherently reduce your customer base.

    Mobile Tire Shop. Let's figure that out!
    There is a reason the vast majority of those fail miserably... In well over 30 years in this business I have seen them come and go constantly over the decades. Too much investment for too little work that doesn't pay enough, and especially in this case, too short term of an escalated need to be realistic.

    Itís not vacancy if people are still paying rent

    We have switched to a rotating 50% of people work from home to decrease density downtown.

    Essentially maintain a rotating skeleton screw in the office, also acts as a stress test for our IT infra in case we move to 0% in the office.
    But if nobody is at work downtown, then the best place for me to be is downtown.

    4D thinking motherfuckers.

    Same here as well. From what I gathered around the dealership we are seeing significantly less appointments compare to March from previous years.

    I'm in Fixed Ops. So on that side, I do see less appointments and people servicing their cars than usual. But that could be also due to economy, people are broke after Christmas, vacation season. Jan/Feb are always our slowest months. Should start ramping up soon when people bring out their AMGs...

    Nahh... The people that would mostly die are not customers of mine. They are the ones who just take up needed hospital beds in the short term trying to drag out a little more time.

    Please note... It isn't my plan. It is natures plan. I just recognize the result. It doesn't mean it is pleasant. Just reality.

    I am in Bow Valley and have an office in Suncor..

    Apparently 98 kids in the Suncor daycare.. so have to think at least 98 adults being exposed in Suncor... times however many people they come in contact with. Even just seeing how many kids push the buttons in the elevator in the morning and afternoon.
    Heard a rumor that at least 200 people were sent home and the building may be closed later today... this is getting ugly.

    I think you might be taking me far more seriously than you should be. I often just say shit to see what happens. Not that there isn't a degree of truth to it, but I see what is happening around me and don't have my head buried in the sand about anything.

    I've heard the same. I'm hoping they do close the building/send everyone home. Not great timing work-wise though. Working remotely is normal procedure for my company, but it's less efficient for Suncor folks (who I work with).

    I run a Business Centre on the top 2 floors and most of our clients have gone home already...Our Bow valley location is nearly empty as well.

    I literally don't have a computer at home new enough to install Citrix.
    2006 iMac.
    Can't afford anything now that investments have all but disappeared.

    "Abundance of caution" translates to "Keep coming into work until one of you catches something on the filthy public transit, then we will ask a few of you to self isolate even though we recognize that you all touch the same coffee machine, door knobs, and defecate in the same sinks because the government says that we are very low risk".

    I want a 14 pack of Corona for self isolation that includes an ‘I survived 14 days of Conona.’ t-shirt.

    Hold on to that shirt. Some emerging data may imply longer than 14 days of quarantine.
