This is how I feel but it’s also a test. Did I content warning this right?
I know this is a big ask and yes we should have been more prepared. Animal Crossing comes at you fast.
There are automated messages of someone responding that people use to trick telemarketers and waste their time while they ignore the call. They appear to be someone answering and there are numerous ones that can be incredibly elaborate in their design. My job involves calling people and I get them a lot. We’re suppose to disconnect but ...
My confession is that I never “catch on” because I want to hear every moment of these wonderful audio sketches and they’re the only thing I like about my job.
covid19 prep, serious/dark
Ok, remember that feeling, when one of our friends is in dire need and there's nothing we can /do/ because we're remote?
We're gonna feel it a lot more as folks we know start coming down ill... Folks who live alone, who may not have anyone checking on them. We're going to see texts of "it's not that bad" then an hour later "my fever is like whoa" and then [silence], and not know if they're coherent enough to call themselves an ambulance. Or maybe, we'll be them.
So what do we do about it? Are there sub-networks of folks checking in on folks, and mutual authorizations to call in help if someone is known seriously ill and falls beyond a certain response level, that still accommodate personal choice and the fact that sick folks need to sleeeeep? I'm not sure what the answer would look like... but I think we need one.
