So no airport trips then? How do they get back home? 🤔🤔
If the nest is empty it might give someone a chance to get in there and clean the pig sty up.

I am still in Pattaya and would rather isolate here :biggrin:

Girls just move party to the richest falang mansion that supports the bar girls.

Most rideshare drivers live day to day, myself included, not working for 2 days, let alone 2 weeks I will die financially. Only debt I have is for car. But main worry is for utilities, food etc. Very worrying times. Getting $750 from scomo end of month but not enough. Probably have to sell off gold jewellery, luckily gold price ok and Aussie peso low. Oh well good luck and all the best for all.

Ill say it again, nobody owes you a living. You chose to put all your eggs in the uber basket, so live with the consequences

Even better, like most brainless uber drivers
What and your one with a brain.

I don't do uber because I like it. I do it because I have no other option. If I could get a normal job I would. But because of medical reasons I can't. So don't put me in brainless uber driver category. You know nothing of my situation.

True but you are a cold bastard nevertheless

Anyway, italian gov froze all mortgage and rent payments during lockdown, i imagine will be same here, non perishable food items still quite cheap, $700 should cover food for 2 months with a bit of planning

You can still buy N99 grade breathing mask online just got to wait 10-15 days for delivery. Get a lot of replacement filters as well.
Basically a lot of doctors and nurses around the world are using N95 grade mask and handling infected patients so N99 grade actually filters out more crap from the air. Anything better then N99 grade would be one of those full face military grade chemical gas mask but at the cost of mega $$$ to buy multiple filter canisters that has to be replaced every day.

Honestly thought about buying myself box or two from a factory in china myself and reselling it in Oz to people when I drive. Then I realize I don't drive that much anymore :redface: means I'll have hundreds of mask just laying around. But for personnel use I got 2 and will probably put it on when more cases of corona pops up in my city.

Mask can be hand washed and reused. Filter last 48-72 hours before needing replacement. Cost to replace filters $6 if you are just replacing it every week when your working 48-72 hours. For those super ants that are doing 72 plus hours would need 2 filters. Pretty economical for that little bit of protection. Reason why I got 2 when I decide to use it if I wash one and it needing to be dry then I can just use the other.

Mask and 6-8 filters should cost you under $50. Postage & handling cost not included.

Uber, Taxi, Limo and other private hire will all feel the pain of this.
Pax will be wary of the possibility of ANY TYPE OF DRIVER passing on the infection, especially in your Yaris or Micra.
As for pax to pax on public transport - well......
Private cars about to clog the roads all day, everyday - assuming workplaces don鈥檛 shut down en masse.
Might also be a good idea to dump those Virgin Australia shares at their current $0.08 - they did hit $0.06 late last week. Serious airline pain coming for them and others.
