Out of touch
Returning to a new reality.
1# Off the grid
I will never forget the guy who came into my work this past December with no mask on saying "can somebody please tell me what's going on!!??" We gave him a mask, learned that he had been living off the grid for a while, and had not yet learned that there was a global pandemic.— icky sticky (@thought_grime) May 12, 2021
2# Waking up
I remember a woman coming into my work, trying to work out the money. I asked how long she’d been out of the country. She said she had just woken up from a 15 yr coma. Seriously, I paid for her food and said it was a welcome back present— Ben James🇳🇿🏳️🌈♎️❤️😷 (@BenJame59199406) May 13, 2021
3# Lucky escape
4# One year per minute recap
Last June I was working a pizza shop, got a call around closing time from a guy that just finished a 20 year prison sentence. I spent at least 15 minutes answering his questions about the world, he didn't know anything about the pandemic or our town's curfew.— Transgender Factory Worker (Líle Sullivan) (@Lile_Zz) May 13, 2021
5# Radio silence
My story isn’t as bad as the off-the-grid guy:— Charles Lee (@Goofyfan_Chuck) May 13, 2021
My first car had no working radio. I’m driving to campus on 9/11, having no clue what happened. I see everyone crying and hugging, and I’m so confused. Then I see a television, and I’m stunned.
I was sailing across the Atlantic in autumn ‘08. The first call I made when we re-entered mobile reception was to my dad. The first thing he said was “The banking system has collapsed.”!— Michael Wood (@michaelcwood) May 13, 2021
