    A guy in a store told me he would NOT stand on the X's that marked the Six-Foot social distance.

    "I have seen too many Road-Runner Cartoons. I know what happens!"

    Thought I was going to die laughing.

    To be clear, he kept his distance, he simply refused to stand on the X.

    Many a grandmother has had her back broken by unthinking hopscotchers. (maybe?)

    Heh, I had to return to a Firestone center today with a bad Interstate battery (only 3.25 years old...not impressed). There were x's on the floor. I chuckled, until they told me they had the replacement battery, but couldn't replace it till tomorrow. I HAD TO JUMP my Jeep to get there! I walked across the parking lot, bought a wrench, and replaced it myself, in THEIR parking lot. Again, not impressed. Yes, I sent a note to Firestone, as a formerly returning customer. And I DID NOT stand on the X, lol.

    3.25 years for the life of a battery here in the desert would be huge. We are lucky to get 2 years out of any car battery here...

    What happened? I used to get 5 years from a crappy Walmart battery? I haven't seen 5 years from a battery in decades. This was the top o the line Interstate. Not impressed.
